Long time lurker, first time poster.
32 years old. Engaged. CT.
Grew up wanting to be magician, that never happened, but I'm currently putting together a walkaround set and working on one liners to go along with it.

The first trick I was ever taught is also my 4 year old's favorite trick. She gets to be a volunteer and she likes to tell the story of the 4 kings as we do it.

Some of my best childhood memories were magic shows; Blackstone, David Copperfield, Ronald McDonald, the clown that came into my pre-school and pulled a banana from a kid's dad and had the kid next to me hold a coin tightly in his hand until he left, which then disappeared.

Mostly do cards, but have everything I need to get into coins and mentalism.

Want to eventually get into some intermediate cardistry.

Thinking about starting a YouTube channel for honest trick reviews.

The sense of humor I use is a mixture of self-deprecation and faux-arrogance.

Yup, that's me in a magical nutshell.

Welcome AlexTheAlrightandOK,

Most Magicians are better off as part timers. It lets you enjoy the Magic more with less pressure to make a living.

I used to be a clown wrangler for Ronald McDonald (OK, roady). It was great fun even though I started with a mild clown phobia. I got over it and really enjoyed watching the fun that surrounded Ronald.

Cards are way easier than coins for me (at least on an intermediate level).

Thanks!

Ronald McDonald was my first favorite. The first time I saw him it was at a fair and I got to be a volunteer for the invisible ball and paper bag and the second time he was at the mall, held up a huge tooth brush, asked everyone what it was for and I think I cracked my first joke... a 7 year old yelling "A big mouth!" lol

I YouTube searched RM to see if I could find the same guy, especially an older recording... but it gave me a really bad (and possibly drunk) Ronald on a local news station performing for kids... and boy was it cringe-worthy.

Did you ever come through CT (USA)?
