  • An Absolute Must!

    5 Stars

    The lessons learned here make it easier to secure restaurant gigs. I have been a magician for years but it wasn't until after viewing this that I finally started doing restaurant magic. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST for the serious restaurant magician. - Jason Powers
