What do you want out of this? Do you want to do a big show for lots of people? Lots of people won't stay around if they can't see the cards.

Also, the fewer people who watch your show, the fewer tips you'll get. If you stop three people who don't tip for whatever reason, you have just worked for free. If that doesn't bother you, go ahead and get out there and play some. It's worth the practice, especially if you are new to performing.

I do a mentalism card routine (forced cards and a prediction) which is great because once they've made a selection yo invite them to guard the prediction which gives more room for people to see (and makes the selectees stay as well Smile )
PLUS - YOu can go into the audience to give them cards so there are no issures with sight or anything like that. A great time to do a few gags like the one where you have a card obviously sticking out and you keep telling them to pick that one - always gets a few laughs

Wow... necro thread!

Personally, I find if the cards come out, the people start to vanish unless is a d*mn good effect.

That said, I keep about a half dozen effects in my brain to use. I've found card effects make a good middle part to your set, provided you keep it short, visual and move on rapidly. The standard "pick a card/find a card" effects... don't cut the mustard.

Tool, Haunted Deck, Color Changes, ACR (at times), Rising Card effects are my bread and butter.

This, of course, is purely *my* experience, and yours will vary.

Best of luck!

I found that the only people that don't like card tricks are magicians
and wanna be magicians (i.e. youtube expsoser looker upper).

Jimmy pretty much sumed it up above and I agree it is possible....

I would like to have seen the first link shared; but, it's marked as

I don't do an all card show on the street, but I do have multiple selection
routine in my set....
