Last night, I had the biggest show of my career thus far. It was a corporate gig for a company at a super high class hotel in downtown. Needless to say, I showed up in a suit and tie. Over 500 people had RSVP'd and were there. When I arrived, I notified the DJ who gave me an introduction, and I was on the dance floor, center of attention for about 15 minutes in front of all these people. Best. Feeling. In. The. World. Period. I performed Five Card Opener, and followed with Celebrity Smart-ass. I then told everyone I would be walking around and to feel free to flag me down if they wanted to see magic. I started making my rounds performing. Things were going alright. Another member here has a post going about his recent gig, the music was super loud and his Invisible Deck was off, he had mentioned. I had similar problems. Music was loud, and talking was actually screaming. My ID was fine, and I performed it a few times, then realized it was a lost cause and stopped. Reactions were mediocre because they didn't understand what was going on because they couldn't really hear me over the music. I had two highlights/favorite moments of the night. First, I'll say this - I think hecklers are hilarious. I don't let them get to me. I laugh at them (not to their faces of course). When one arises, I'll assess the situation then and make appropriate measures. I had one hilarious heckler. It was an old European man, and babysitting him was a middle aged guy. I say "babysitting" because this Euro guy was HAMMERED drunk. The younger guy wanted to see magic. I barely got through one trick because the Euro guy was being a jerk. He was PISSED at me for doing magic, threatening me with the beating of a lifetime and saying if I don't stop he will have me arrested and thrown out. He was in my face and I thought it was about to go down! Anyhow, I kept composure, just said okay, finished the trick for the other gentleman and started to walk away. The younger guy enjoyed the magic and ended up tipping me $20 Funniest thing about this is that the Euro guy was a big wig - practically the owner of the entire company. The second highlight was when a guy asked if I just did card and coin tricks. I told him that I can generally do magic with just about anything. He slid me a decorative box of ornaments and said "Do something with that.." I then proceeded with the brain melting. I grabbed a green ornament and banged it on the table. I said "I wonder how hard it is to break these?" I clenched it in my fist and SQUEEZED. The ornament was gone. Completely - both hands were empty. I let that sink in and slid the box of ornaments in front of him and said "It was green, right?" I waved my empty hand over the box and the ornament reappeared back in its original location, leaving this man completely floored. Overall I had a great time and realized one thing - I love being on stage in front of a ton of people entertaining them!
