Today’s post is HUGELY important so listen up…
I get a lot of emails from magicians demanding more tricks from me.
(First of all, how about a “thank you” for the good tricks I DO send?)
Seriously though, the problem isn’t that they ask for new tricks all the time. The problem is that they NEED new tricks all the time.
Let me explain.
Maybe you’re in the same kind of situation.
Maybe you perform magic for the same people over and over and over.
It could be your family. It could be your co-workers. It could be the other kids at school.
Day in and day out, they want to see…NEW TRICKS!
“Whattya got today?” or “Any new tricks for me?” or “Hey, do some magic for Jim!”
It forces you to try and stay one step ahead of them.
It forces you to never TRULY learn a single magic trick.
Think about it.
If you spend all your time learning new tricks, then you’ll never have time to PERFECT the old tricks.
Read that last sentence again…it’s important.
It’s okay to show people lots of tricks (as long as they ask to see them). In fact, it will help you to discover which tricks are good and which ones are not so good.
But at some point, you must focus your time and energy on a small number of tricks or routines.
Perform these few tricks regularly for new people and they’ll turn into mini-masterpieces.
For example, my sponge ball routine is spectacular.
I’ve been doing it since I was 14 years old. I’ve literally performed it for tens of thousands of people throughout the years.
It is a well-oiled machine that guarantees amazement, laughter, key “photo-ops”, and
And it didn’t happen overnight.
It happened because I perform it for real people. Over and over and over again.
Take the time to learn a few good routines. REALLY take the time. Learn them. Perfect them. And they will serve you well for the rest of your magic career.
Go spread some wonder!

P.S. Members of my new “BPP Market Domination Program” will receive my entire sponge ball routine (among MANY other things).
All the lines, all the jokes, all the moves, and all the experience.
If you ever do a show for kids of any age, then you NEED a routine like this.
There’s still time to be part of this life-changing program:
