I was just reading a review on E about one of their shirts, and one of the shirts said that wearing that shirt for a few days and people will be calling you magic man. I cant stand being called magic man. Yes i am the man who does magic but i would rather have people know me as Chris the magician or the Chris, he does magic. I know that when this happens, people dont know who i am, just that i do magic. they dont know my name and this doesnt help when im trying to get gigs. they'll say, Oh i saw this awesome magician, Whats his name? i dont know. this is a big problem. people only see you as that kid who does tricks, not as a performer, or really as just a person. they'll see you walking around later and be like. OH its the magic man. but they dont know your name, they dont know anything else about you. when i go up to a table or a group of people and introduce myself. i tell them my name is Chris WIehl , thats pronounced wheel , like a tire. This is one thing i do to have the people remember my name. i let them have that last name ring. Wiehl. which is almost as good as remembering my first name (you can find a wiehl easier than a chris in the phonebook or online) Also i put in a few jokes where i talk in third person which gives me a reason to say my name. also i try to do a trick with my business card, so i can leave them with a souvenir. sometimes they dont even realize it is my business card untill the end, so its not a forced feeling that they have by business card. but thats some of the things that i do.
