Conjuror At The Table: A Master Course in Restaurant Magic - Al James
Those of you who are interested in restaurant magic are in for a real treat! In Conjurer at the Table, Al James walks you through the process of scouting, booking and keeping a restaurant gig, as well as what kind of magic to perform in this setting. A true highlight of the book is the personal stories Al shares about the long-gone legends of restaurant and bar magic in Chicago.
As a bonus, the magic of Heba Haba Al (the magician who invented the card on the forehead and many other close-up classics) is presented. As far as we know, this is the first time his work appears in print. Most of what you've already read are other people's versions of his original routines.
