A friend of mine forwarded me an ad from a local website and I followed up.
I have done a couple small shows but never had to audition. does anyone have any advice on length/content etc. . for an audition. it is part of a bigger show so Im guessing my part will be fairly short. my average show is close to an hour (depending on how well I drag out my patter, and how much fun I'm having) any advice would be great. or if this belongs in another thread let me know.

First, try to find out what kind of magic they would like to see at the audition. Ask also how long 'they' want. You may be asked to come prepared to do 15 min. and only have to do 3. That could either be bad or good.

Also...you NEVER want to have to 'drag' out your patter. Your presentations should fit the optimum time that it takes to do any particular presentation the best possible. An hour for a stand-up or parlor show is loooooooooooong. I highly suggest you put together a really tight high impact 30 minutes. As you progress you may want to have 2-3 full 30 minute shows that you can do for folks that are rebooking you, but many times they will want the show they saw before. That's the one that impressed them, etc.

Good luck,
Brad Burt
