Restaurant and bar magician updates

This week I had a terrific performance. I performed at 16 tables and about 50 percent were requests. I had a bunch of repeat clients who brought friends to the brunch and see the performance – this is great for restaurant magician because things like this keep you in business. I also had the pleasure to met a client of mine who had booked me for other events in the past. She heard from my newsletter that I am performing at the Grand Hyatt Singapore and came with her husband and friends to see the performance. I recently created a new hand out. It is basically my business card but I can attach a playing to the inside and I can write a personal message. I think that people rather keep that then just a playing card. Let’s see after I have handed out the first 500 what the responses are.

Saturday and Sunday I was working again for MasterCard as corporate Magician Singapore for the launch of their new program Priceless Surprises. The event was hosted at the MasterCard theater at Marina Bay Sands. My job was to entertain the clients in the queue who were waiting for their price. Usually these events are not my favorites since the audience is only focused on the prices they get. This one was actually quite fun since I could do longer shows for the people in line covering up to 15-20 people at a time. It reminded me of a busking style show that I used to do at street festivals. The problem in Casinos in Singapore is that hired performers can only do their shows inside the respective venue e.g. at the MasterCard theater. The space right in front of the place is Casino space and you cannot perform their without a specific license. The event and the performance went well and I had repeat “customers” that came twice to see something else.

When you work as a restaurant magician Singapore you have to deal with all kinds of situations. Recently I was asked by the management to go to VIP table in one of the private rooms at Mezza9 . I walk in introduce myself and tell them that I am the entertainment the Gentleman who had reserved the table and room turns around looks at me and says with a stone face: No we don’t need this please leave. I excused myself with a smile for the interruption and turned around to walk out. He started laughing and said just kidding come in and show us what you got. He was a tough spectator but I won him over and he thanked me at the end for the performance. The same group came back yesterday and this time he requested me to do a performance and at the end he gave me a hug at the end of the show. A very funny guy. I wished all my performance were like this.

Axis Bank India was looking for corporate entertainment Singapore. They found my website and I was hired to perform at their Sales Award Dinner last week Saturday at the Swissotel The Stamford in Singapore. They flew in 300 of their top performers from India for a weekend in Singapore. Some of these guys had never been overseas and it was the first trip. I was booked to do a 20 minute stage performance. Since my act doesn’t use any big props but relies on audience interaction, a good sound an light equipment was essential. This was all top notch. The event organizer was Kaleidoscope from India and they handled it great. Axis Bank flew in their Master of Ceremonies as well. The reason was that the audience came from all parts of India and they need someone who could pronounce all the names correctly in the main dialects. The performance went ok but I realized that even so everybody spoke English a lot of my lines fell flat. I believe it due to the fact that the humor is different and comedy and comic lines are a lot subject to education and background. I want to re-script my program to be more descriptive and leave out some of the jokes. Lessons learned. Here is the picture (stage view) of the function room before people came in.

Magician Singapore – corporate event

Magician Singapore performs at MasterCard corporate event

When you work as a corporate Magician Singapore you are sometimes booked for events that are not a regular performance like at party or corporate dinner. I am currently hired by MasterCard to support their launch of a new program called Priceless Surprises.

Basically I have to come out twice an hour and perform a quick bit for the current winner. I sometime think this is not ideal for Magic since you are used as gadget. However I believe it is your job to your best to perform a good show for the client regardless of the setting. During one of the performances I had 2 ladies on the platform with me and their faces were the perfect match for the tagline of the campaign a priceless surprise. I hope that the on site photographer got a snapshot of that. Basically it is important to have fun with any given situation this positive attitude transcends to the people watching and they ‘usually’ like what you do. I will do 4 more of these at Sentosa and at the MasterCard Theater at Marina Bay Sands.
