Mario’s Tales from the Street 

The streets always have some great lessons to teach any aspiring or any established acts that care to continue growing. Never mind how good you are, the number one thing that can make your hat fat (or a decent payment)  is your finale.

A common mistake that magicians make is that we forget that the public doesn’t care so much for dexterity as they do to being entertained.

So think about your finale – look for a cliff hanger effect that will make your audience hang on to every action, word or both. If you display just dexterity in your finale you may make a pleasant hat but if you display danger, drama or suspense and dexterity you will make greater hats.
