As the topic,

1.i wanna know where did you guys start?
2.how to promo this kind of performance?
3.we knew that Bizzare need different style to show, not simple Magic, are you guys sometimes magician, soemtimes paranormal performancer?

actually I think Asian still need to learn for watch and enjoy Bizzare,
if it look like a magic show, some of audience may expect cards, coin, ball... ...
I try to perform bizzare alone few years ago, and I try duo act with a mentalist last year, I think the respone was good when Paranormal VS Science~
I wanna get more information about you guys to improve everything

4.any suggestion for more place to perform?
5.and/or how to make it more popular in Asia?

Best,
Witch Doctor

Small to medium sized theatres, parlours for private parties, after dinner parties.

Promotion uses the term 'Mystery Entertainment' and then words such a beguiling, enchanting, mysterious, uncanny, etc.

Occult is a turn off to most people as it is misunderstood as scary...

Here are some examples:

Hope this helps!

The best way to underscore the bizarre side of your magic is not to use the words "magic" or "magician". Better to talk about "experience" or "mentalism", but still use the words "show" and "performance". Otherwise you could appear as a charlatan...

Wise advice from Jeremy. My own performances are more in the 'occult' realm of things and are intended to be scary, so an audience that have a sense of expectation and venturing into the unknown is vital for these events to develop in the way they are intended to.
I never use the word 'magic' and allude to nothing of the kind.

The venue I use are rooms in old hotels with a long history, I also perform these nights at people's homes for private parties. The right venue is needed for creating the atmosphere required for the sort of nights that Dale and I put on. The nights are advertised as 'entertainment' but things are left ambigious and the audience leave with their own views intact and their own perspective on what they have witnessed.

Yes, but how do you market these shows?

What do you do to attract attention to your site or how do you be known to the potential client?

I have been trying direct mail & website, but it seems like a 'secret ingredient' is alluding me.

Well . . . at least I never give up!

Marqus, this is THE question and I honestly believe there is no one single answer to.

People pay a lot of money to attend seminars that claim to answer this question but the fact is what works for one may not work for another.

It's hard. I wish I had the secret recipie, because if I did I be a millionaire... Which I'm not Smile
