Magic Audition

Yup, that's me with my playing cards and my crystal ball
I had an audition for a show on Sunday, but I've been busy and haven't been able to write it up. It was for a small variety thing that would travel from club to club and put on a show. It went really well...

I got there a bit early and met all the people and got to watch the guy ahead of me go up and do his thing. He was a comedian. There's not much more I can say about him without seeming catty and mean, but I will say that I was quite confident when it was my turn.

I went up, adjusted the mike and went into my set. They seemed happy with it, and when I was done asked me to do something else...I was really hoping they wouldn't ask me to do a third thing, since anything else I would have done was locked in a dressing room at another theater and beaming technology is a far cry from what it is on Star Trek. Luckily they were happy with the two pieces and said that I would definitely be hearing from them (they didn't say that to the other guy)...

I don't know if a really great gig will come from this, but the important thing is to keep putting yourself out there...it's a numbers game more than anything else.

Don't forget, "Friday's Favorites" is coming up tomorrow...check back or follow this blog to see what I've found this week.
