Magicians are the only ones who care about
secrets. Everyone else wants to be entertained.
- Regina Benedict Reynolds
Its called magic for a reason. Make sure your effects are spellbinding and enthralling. Choose your tricks carefully. Do only stunning tricks. Personally, I avoid spelling tricks and others involving mathematical calculations on the part of the spectator. I find they bore rather than entertain. Make your patter interesting and topical. Movement on stage keeps things fresh and interesting. Practice your patter and the manner in which you speak. All for these details adds to your audience's entertainment.
