Continue to completely ignore anything they say, but keep asking questions and producing different items from your fly. Produce an item for each person at the table. For a finale, I suggest pulling a pair of tights whites out and thank them for watching.


Nah; pull out the little multi-button spigot thing from the bar and refill their drinks.

Why every magician is not subscribed to that is beyond me. Best $5 I spend every month.

Best thing I ever heard on this topic was a guy who had made a bunch of table tents made, one for each table. On one side it said "Yes Show Me the Magic" On the other "No thanks" or something to that effect. He would have the waitstaff ask the customers if they wanted to see the magician and position the table tent accordingly. That to me is just perfect and if I was ever to perform tableside magic I would absolutely use that.

The only problem is that they are making a decision based on not having information about what they are either seeing or turning down.

You would soon discover that the waitstaff doesn't have the time to be be your personal manager. They are busy enough as it is to add that responsibilty to their plate. I have never nor would I ever use table tents. Any available table space is used for desert and or alcohol specials. I'm advertised by posters and my smiling face. Danny Doyle is RIGHT!
If you can't help worrying, remember worrying can't help you!

I work very closely with the wait staff and tip them accordingly. It's part of the venue I work for that my entertainment is optional but made available as a addon to the meal. After the wait staff has taken the orders they ask if while they wait or at some point after the meal they would like the resident entertainer to come to the table? If so I'm brought to the table at the appropriate time and introduced by the server. So no rejection or intrusion. And very professional as the customer know there will be an additional charge for my services. Understand that the menus make this clear. I don't work for tips but split the fees with the venue and the staff.
Those who complain the most about what others are doing, are usually the most guilty of what they are complaining about, THEMSELVES. It's called PROJECTION.

You can WHINE about your problems in life or do something about them, it's your choice.

I LIVE FOR THE APPLAUSE.
