Posted: Jun 2, pm. I'm just wondering what other people think is the difference between an amateur and a professional magician? I'll take myself as an example. I do about 50 shows a year for money, but I put everything I make plus more back into my act. I advertise and I have a web site, but if I was not retired and have another part time job, I definitely would be starving.

If you are organising an event such as a wedding, Christening, corporate event or party and you are on a budget you might be tempted to save money by hiring an amateur magician instead of splashing out on a professional. Live entertainment is an essential element if you want your event to be something other than just another day or night out. Good food and drink is important but it will be the entertainment that creates the atmosphere and the memories for your guests.
