  • Eight years ago I evolved from a part time magician to a full time magician performing in many different venues and for many different audiences. I can certainly relate to what Andre says. I have thought about doing a hypnotist show especially while I am transporting my props in, out, and about. Thanks for all the insights regarding this kind of entertainment.

    • With every passing month, with every bone creaking just a little bit more, I see those photos of a stage with only a microphone and stand becoming more appealing by the day. Hypnotism is not for me but starting to learn more about what I have to offer, what value my ideas and thoughts can bring to a group, these are are where I see my future. I’m on a journey of discovery like you Charlie.

      • Yes, discovery plus the awesome feeling you get when people say things like “you made my day”, or “I laughed so hard my face hurts now”, or when forty pre-school kids come up to you and give you a hug one at a time. This business is very lucrative financially, but the intangible rewards are like nothing I have ever experienced before.
