A median might be more revealing; then again, the median might be $0 if you included everyone who claims to be a "magician."

I bet that the money that magicians make falls under the " 20%-80% " rule. That is that, 20% of the magicians out there make 80% of the money..and the other 80% of magicians make 20% of the money.

That's the rule for most sales jobs, and I don't see magician's as being any different.

I can tell you how to work out what an individual magician makes. Take the fee he claims to make, divide it by two and subtract $50. You will probably get the correct amount then.

I do not classify Criss Angel as a magician so naturally he doesn't count. It has been reported to me that he uses profanity on stage. The VERY SECOND a "magician" uses bad language on stage is the very second he is no longer a magician.

I do not approve and I can assure you that my word on these matters is naturally gospel.

10 dollars usually when pitching them. However, in a magic shop they can be sold for much more. Having said that there are ways of getting $20 for a ten dollar item......................................
