Im wondering if any of you guys perform gambling demo's professionally, I have a few questions, if someone could give me a few pointers id be grateful. Well firstly ill say, i have a short gambling demonstration, 20 minutes currently. But i have numerous effects, so to speak, that are ready to be added, as soon as i work them into the routine. I’m wondering what you guys think the essentials are for a gambling demo, I’m sure I have them covered, I’m just interested in what you’d think, moves and techniques that you think are a must. And secondly, I’m stuck on how to market a gambling routine. I’m not sure if I should advertise myself as a gambling magician, or simply add gambling demo to my current ad’s, in which i promote myself as a close up magician and sudo-mind reader. Im confident if lay people were to look at an ad for a magician and see 'crooked gambling demonstrations' they wouldn't know what to expect from that. Should i promote myself as a 'crooked gambler' separately and in more detail? And lastly, where do those of you who do gambling routines usually get hired? The only place i can think of would be to try and get a side table to work on at the poker tournaments in local hotels and pool halls.
