What do you have on you when doing walkaround?

Postby Alex Kong » October 1st, 2011, 6:54 pm

Hey! I'm new around here. My name is Alex, and I've been doing magic for about 9 months now. Its proved to be really rewarding so far. So, I was wondering, what tricks do you have on you when you are performing walkaround or street magic? I ask this because I have my very first ever restaurant gig coming up in a few weeks. I'm super excited about this, and want to really own it. The tricks I can currently perform well include TCM, here then there, threefly, coinone, cointwo, and stairway, among others. Any help appreciated! Thanks!

Any of Glenn Bishop's shuffling routines go down well. You can get them in his revolutionary PDF "I can do nothing but shuffle for 3 hours and still entertain"

Yes, Glenn Biship's shuffling routines go very well :)
I write on a site about how to be a mentalist.

Speaking as an amateur, when asked to do something on the fly I can always count on Gregory Wilson's A Questionable Trick to make a big impression.
