I want to point out too that I appreciate that Benji just came out and advertised his appearance directly. I didn't like the other approach.


This truly is the thing to be proud of in this thread lol (along with booking a lecture)

A lecture at the Magic Castle is quite an accomplishment.

Way to go!

Danny - I think he means that sometimes people do things because it is considered an honor to do them, and the financial compensation is secondary. Benji will gain a lot of prestigue from his appearance, and he will more than make up for the fact that the compensation is on the lower side.

It more means you are willing to work for the low money.


You keep talking about the low pay $$$ regarding the Castle, but sometimes money is not the final decision factor for everything for some people/performers.

I know what you mean. I'm currently doing a charity run / event and it's getting pretty big with the whole community coming together and the press are getting more and more interested by the day. There is no compensation. It feels good to do good. But it's also a great way to become more well known and, well, also more credible and worthy of talking about. I don't think pay would be Benji's #1 concern for the Castle gig.

Have fun Benji! You deserve it to lecture in the Castle. I think you should also talk about "How can a really good show sell itself".
I saw your magic square on youtube and think it is really great video material for potential clients.

Fantastic Benji! I've relatives in LA and only get out to Castle when I'm visiting them. I wish I could be there for your Lecture.

Nice way to move the thread to the top when you probably already know LOL.

BUT that being said my money is on it went well no matter how many attended. Benji is way too smart to have been unprepared. His performance also probably went well as it is his strong suit.

Those are guesses but I would put money on them.

I seriously hope he comes here himself to let us know. It would even be cool if he actually.engaged people.and talked with them.

While Benji was conducting his lecture, I was in the back of the room with a video camera performing close-up tricks and getting testimonials
