What's "day?" Is that part of the life cycle where I'm trying to sleep when someone turns on that big light up in the sky?

Magic IS my day job. It is also my night job, and has been for the past 17 years. (26 years in the art.) However sometimes I take a vacation in the summer so I do not go totally insane.
The great trouble with magicians is the fact that they believe when they have bought a certain trick or piece of apparatus, and know the method or procedure, that they are full-fledged mystifiers. -- Harry Houdini

I'm the head staging technician for a performing arts centre.
It's not really a 'day' job, it tends to be an all day and all night job.

We haven't had any magicians perform in the venues here...yet.

Professional Couch Surfer. AKA: actor/variety performer.
I have also worked as a waitress (duh), sales (from vintage clothing to toys and magic), desk clerk, secretary, animal and baby sitter, wildlife rehabilitator, and even as an inn ghost. I tried telemarketing for the Baltimore Sympony Opera and lasted a whole day.
As soon as I get back from this crap shoot of a gig I signed up for, I'm going to look for a day or night job. God knows what I'll try this time.

This is quite an interesting topic - it begs the question why did you get into magic as a hobby?

My uncle was a magician and he got me a kit (Adams). The disease grew from there! Smile

I own a video production company. I perform infrequently as I actually prefer being behind the scenes. I also freelance as a pen & ink illustrator and writer because I have decided to limit the production company to magic and personal projects. I have also been teaching Shaolin gungfu for almost 15 years.

Up until last October I was a service technician for SLME the company that manufactures Crate guitar amps and Ampeg bass amps. I specialized in antique equipment (Ampeg invented bass amplification, so they have a bit of history) and artist relation repairs. After leaving SLME, I was freelancing at this, too, until last week when I decided to sell my gear and get out of the business; I am spread too thin!

Magic is a lie. It is our job to convince the audience to overlook the lie and our goal to make them embrace it.
