Greetings and Salutations mrlucky,

The "Art of Street Magic" is a dvd specifically for buskers (street performers), and teaches and shows examples of ways to gather and keep a crowd and how to gather the hat (most of the examples shown are non-magical performers). There are no tricks taught on the tape, and the only magical performance segment, and it is performance only, is a New Orleans street show by Sonny Holiday.

That being said, if you are interested in busking, get the dvd, and find of a copy of Cellini's book, "The Royal Touch." Between the two, there is enough info and tricks to keep you working on the streets the rest of your performing life.

If, however, you are looking for Blaine-style, guerilla magic, please pass this product by -- you won't be interested in anything it has to say on the subject of performing on the streets.

Joe in KC

Make magic happen, live a great adventure!

I agree with everything that Joe said. If you're interesting in real busking, then this dvd, Cellini's book, and Eric Evan's book are the best resources out there.

What would Wavy do?
