back 20+ years ago when there were only 150 professional
magicians working full time, you could make a really good
quality salary and have a comfortable life.
I know this because my parents were one of those 150 magicians.
Obviously over the decades the economy has changed drastically.
Plus the field is overcrowded by part time magicians who have
regular day jobs.
it's not easy in general to be self-employed with steady
work but whatever work you can get it better than none. Especially when what you do if full-time.
The best thing my parents ever told me to help me understand
what it to be a full-time entertainer was
"everytime you finish a job, your unemployed until the next one."
so very true today.

I know there were musicians who did.
