Hi Rick,

I'm curious about how college audiences react to your material. It sounds like you're getting all the work you can handle, but your routines have a depth that contrasts with the standard loud and funny acts that appear at new student welcomes, prospective student visits, mid-semester campus activities, and so on.

Do you alter your program at all for college audiences?

Hello again Curt,

I am really lucky because I am never booked at a college (or anywhere else) to be an entertainer. That isn't what I do, so I am never competing with any other type of act or performer. To be honest, I have never been booked through an agent, and I have never approached a college or a university to book me. Instead, they contact me, and they solicit my specific services.

All of this is possible because I have specifically designed my business plan this way over the years. As I said in another post, I have not taken a booking for a mentalist or a magician for quite a few years. I only take bookings for Rick Maue. And like I said in that other post, that is not ego, it is simple branding. I have spent a number of years establishing my brand, and by sticking to my business plan, I have been able to carve out a very nice niche for myself.

So, to answer your question directly, I don't have to alter my show for a college audience because they solicit me to specifically do my exact show.

There is actually a lot more to it than what I have written here, but I do cover quite a bit of my business philosophy in Occam's Magic.


Keep the change,
Rick
