I am a street magician.

I had a teacher

He was good

Sometimes I feel like a hack, sometimes, it all comes together.

I love it all the same. Starting to dust off my Bar Busking chops and get out of the cold. Cellini taught me about this so you work year round. Using Malini as a model for brashness and exploiting engineered opportunities, I had a hay day soon to be revisited.

I..I'm not a busker. Sure, I've done it for the experience, street magic...the real kind, not that 'look look watch watch' stuff. I'm really just a working stiff, I know, some day I'll rot for it. On the good side when I do see a magician working the street I give 'em the biggest bill I have on me at the time.

'til that busker comes


I have learned a lot from this forum. Thanks to all of you real BUSKERS I started 'passing the hat' this past summer. I guess I am a newbee to the street's, but I have been perfoming magic for the past 35 years or so.

Thanks Koz,

I'v been really giving that loop ball a work out too. I think everyone should buy one from you.
I use the Cellini loop ball and hat routine to gather a crowd. (off the "magic you can do anywhere DVD". Just count the ball's as you produce them and people just start coming to see what is going on, by the time I show the hat empty I have enough people to start the show.

Thanks for all the help.

PS tedb is a busker

Me and a friend is hitting the christmas markets in town in some minutes. He hasn't busked before, so he's a street-virgin. (Not the real virgin-McCoy as Kondini.) Anyway, we will probably freeze our hands of doing juggling and magic in the Swedish winter cold, but hey, that's what I love. To freeze.

I've done a lot of street-magic, and some busking, on & off for over 17 years. I've never done for a living, but I have used it to SURVIVE while wandering through Europe. Ever since I landed my regular gig table hopping at Disney....I'll admit I havn't done much of either.

I've had all manner of experiences in those 17 years....I don't know who would find my advice usefull, but all sorts of advice are potentialy usefull, and should be regarded as such. Parts of this thread smack of elitism....not that there's anything really WRONG with having elites and qualifications to be one of that group, but here is wisdom from the fool: DO NOT DISMISS advice...TEST IT. try it. See if it works or not. We're not talking about advice regarding skydiving here, so go ahead and risk it. If it works, great, if it flops, you STILL profited by learning from a failure. You'll never know if you don't try.
Everybody wants to beleive.....we just help them along.

Hi Mighty Fool
Great advise that I think we should all tack on board. The point of this thread is to make it clear who is who so when advice is given we can all be at the best advantage to learn. The advice that can be misleading is when it is given by someone as if they are more experienced than they really are. In my mind the only folk that should have trouble with this thread are the ones that do give this impression.

The intention is far removed from creating elitism but rather a safe environment in which to share what ever our experience. If there is a post in this thread that is contradiction to that, please do highlight the whole post and if it is mine I will apologies. Failing that I trust we are saying the same thing.
