When you’re out performing, I think it’s important to talk to people you meet. I’ve met some really cool people over the years, just by chit chatting with them. At a fair a recently I started chatting with the guy selling mystery bags. His name is Gene Haaheim, he’s an old pitch man. He pitched Svengali Decks a long time ago, and also the magic mouse.
We had a great time chatting about some of the older people in magic who used to work the pitch circuit! Gene also did a couple of good card tricks.
Go out and talk to people at your next gig, you’ll be amazed at who you run into!
