B) My trick layout changed completely except for the Rope and the Cups and Balls. I switched the Silk to Crazy Man's and changed up my card effect.


Hello Jamie,

I've never busked so I'm shamelessly taking advantage of grilling a "rookie" busker as it were.

You've stated, "Funny is Money" so did the changes in your set come from lackluster crowd reaction, a miscue in what the various tourists would find humorous or something else?

The Vanishing silk(I assume) is a great effect and I've heard other street workers use it as openers. What did you find out about the effect that didn't play for you?

Thank you for your time,
rawdawg
One time, when I was young, I botched a sleight so bad, Vernon, Marlo & Miller rolled over in their graves. But I didn't see Elmsley, probably because he was behind the others.

Jamie,

Thanks for sharing. Great vid.

I love the glass of water production, and it seemed to get great reactions. It seems like a "loaded gun" that you can pull out at any moment in your act.

The "steampunk" look is great. It really conveys character.

Did you do anything with coins?

Way to go Jamie!!!

Really nice video ... professional quality.

$150 in 1.5 hours? On your first go? Kozmo would be proud.

You brought a tear to my eye when you dedicated the short to Cellini. Cheers!!

I hope one day to see you perform on the streets live.

Keep On Buskin!

Well done! What a shock going from corporate to street, eh?
You did lots of prep and study and it showed - I hope folks will learn from that.
You put together material you could already do and found great equipment.
You obviously took your other experience and knowledge to shorten the learning curve, with great effect. That was great to watch.
And stopping people in that cold is a pretty amazing accomplishment, too!
But perhaps the most amazing thing is that it only took you SEVEN MINUTES to get your government permit! Are you kidding me? <lol>


Oh, yeah - I want you to do my next promo reel - your video ROCKS!
Cheers,
Eric

Frank didn't need to mention anything about it. It's obvious to anybody who knows anything about magic busking equipment--or Frank!

Steampunk Rocks! I have done magic at more than my fare share of events! I have a costume made just for it. And yes I do wear goggles. Only recently I have added some really cool ear goggles to the mix!

My only thought is that you spelled license wrong at the beginning of the video.

Keep the Steampunk look and keep "rocking your goggles"

Lol, it's a good thing it was shot in Canada Smile

And thanks for the kind words everyone! I've just been teaching myself how to make videos and it's a loooong process, lol.
