True, there are nice people who are EA's and haven't killed millions. I hadn't considered this.

Was it your intention to make it sound like the 'not nice' people who are EAs are murderers? How we defining 'not nice'? Or are you generalising again? If the latter can we add:- there are nice people who are not EAs and who have not killed millions. If I killed just one person would I fall outside the 'nice people' category? Or is that too general?

PS EA's should not have an apostrophe as it is a pleural rather than an omission or a position ..... Sorry lthere is a lesson on use of apostrophise taking place in the room- otherwise I wouldn't have noticed Smile So it's EAs

My grudging admission that maybe EAs are not as evil as Ghengis Khan.

It's a joke. I know EAs are nicer than that.

A bad performance kills any audience, and burns them for any that might follow.

Interesting comment Harley ..... (Are there any other type from you ... ).....

I was talking recently to someone who would not book a magician ..... because " we had a magician 3 years ago he was rubbish". People seem to accept a bad singer and give another singer a shot. But not magic (and affiliate darts) .... Do you think it's down to us being in a minority?

No. It's not that WE're a minority. I think it's more that so many magi (and EAs with no apostrophe) are just such bad performers.

We also have a problem in that most of the folks who produce mass-media, might understand an editing suite, but not what makes a good show.

Whenever I do a magic trick Dave people EXPECT it to suck. And they expect me to fail. Because so many magicians fail, and so much of what people know of as magic is little children and ugly uncles failing at it and being weird and creepy.

Any magician who is a good magician is a standout and an anomaly. There are SO MANY bad magicians. If you are a good magician you're actually a national treasure, in my opinion. If you can keep a crowd of people entertained as a magician, you're better (and rarer) than a famous musician. There are plenty of good musicians, there are very few good magicians.

Many people (I'd say about 60% in America) have never seen a good magician. Isn't that sad? People come up to me all the time and say "I've never seen a REAL magician before, just stuff on television and kids tricks."

And I don't even think I'm a GREAT magician, just a decently good one.

You should really respect yourself and feel proud that you are a good magician. If you do walk around regularly, street perform regularly or book real gigs time and again, you are actually a very rare creature. The world may not treat you with respect but you're as rare as a masterful ballerina, or any other great artist.
