Those of you who are interested in restaurant magic are in for a real treat! In Conjurer at the Table
, Al James walks you through the process of scouting, booking and keeping a restaurant gig, as well as what kind of magic to perform in this setting. A true highlight of the book is the personal stories Al shares about the long-gone legends of restaurant and bar magic in Chicago.
As a bonus, the magic of Heba Haba Al (the magician who invented the card on the forehead and many other close-up classics) is presented. As far as we know, this is the first time his work appears in print. Most of what you've already read are other people's versions of his original routines.
"If you want to perform magic in restaurants, Al James's Conjuror at the Table
is your step-by-step guide on how to do just that. If you're already a restaurant performer, it will up your game dramatically. This is a must-read for any restaurant performer." - Suzanne The Magician
