I have been following magic from a distance for years. Thanks to sitting at home for several months on industrial leave, I decided to check off a bucket list item and give a show to close friends and family. I thought I would share it with you all to say thanks for allowing a wannabe magician like me into the Magic Café. Please remember, before you watch it, there is a 2 drink minimum! (If the link doesn't work below, just type in, "Hambini the great" in Youtube and it will pop right up.


If you have ideas or suggestions, I welcome them all. However, keep in mind, I have no desire to make this my new career. Just enjoy seeing close friends laugh and smile.

It was very entertaining, no refund needed.

If I was to critique for future performances, even for friends, here is what I would do differently.

Put the dog away prior to show.
Use a fixed camera on tripod, maybe in center back. If you want audience view, have a second camera and edit.
Have a second person in charge of queuing music and lights.
Be aware of camera and not have back to it.
Do not leave the camera view once in it.
I would probably shorten the skit to 30 minutes.
Lastly, review what jokes the audience liked and disliked.

I liked it! Made me laugh and that is not easy to do! Just clean up what TomB suggested.

Very nice one! I would recommend you keep recording your show and asking for advice from close, knowledgeable people who will be able to provide feedback. Once every ten or twenty shows, I go for such feedbacks myself.
