on the street,never ask anyone if they want to see a trick
let me save you some time.
if you ask some one if they wanna see a trick the answer is NO!
stopping asking that stupid question over and over to the people your imbarrassing us magi.
here it is;
NEVER ASK SOME ONE IF THEY WANT TO SEE SOMETHING!
TELL THEM THEY WANT TO! AND DON'T BE A WUSSIE. they smell fear.
when i started out busking....asking, was the biggest mistake i ever made. i spent all day asking, "would you like to see a trick?"
this is not busking this is begging.
the passer by is inundated with these questions from all sides and he becomes jaded and reactionary.... short story he says no.
what should you say?
"pay attention cuz i'm not doin it again!"
or just begin your patter for the trick.
get creative but don't ask.
