I had the pleasure of entertaining at Braehead shopping centre on Saturday night to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the opening. They had a BBQ, A karaoke tent, and a £1 a drink offer on. There were about 500 in attendance and I can safely say I’ve never worked in a place with so many young attractive girls – and that comes from a guy who used to work in a strip club. It never occurred to me that so many sales staff were females between the ages of 18 – 24. Rumour has it that one of them wasn’t blonde but I didn’t see her.
The highlight of my night was probably a guy from my first group. Approaching the first group of people is a skill that’s important to magicians as it can get you into a really good frame of mind. Amongst my first crowd was a guy called Jay who was really cool. He said his friend was into card tricks but it was a pleasure seeing me doing it so effortlessly.
Another group I had was a real struggle at first. One of the gentlemen at the group said there was no point in showing him any tricks because he used to work with someone who was really good with cards. The rest of the group still seemed interested and I proceeded to show them my signature effect. They were amazed and my misdirection was pretty good and I even managed to fool the guy who knew how it was all done.
Overall a very fun night and a big thanks to Lauren for hiring me
