Something RARE! Andy Martello Performs...MAGIC!
Not too long ago I performed a couple of shows for a school here in Vegas. They were having an enrichment program for certain students and the thing they were studying was magic.
The teacher thought to e-mail the fine folks at Houdini's Magic Shop, my "day job" hoping to have someone come out and give a demonstration. The folks at my store recommended me to go out there since they knew I was a professional performer, good with kids, and competent enough to perform some magic even though I am not a magician by trade.
I perform several magic tricks a day as a salesman at Houdini's. I was a tad nervous about doing a full on show, especially if I was also to teach a few folks some tricks afterwards, but they assured me I could do some of my regular act as well as some magic.
I got a bit more nervous when I found out the owner of the company, Geno Munari, would be there and videotaping the show. I'd not met him at that point and I felt that the first meeting should not feature me doing a performance art I do not perform.
All told the shows went extremely well. Geno enjoyed my performances, I made some much-needed extra cash if not a good impression with Geno, and I believe there are more shows in my future. At the very least I found out I can perform a few magic tricks if I ever needed to fill in some time at a show.
If you go to the Houdini's website (in the "watch videos" section) you can see the video they produced from the footage. A great little performance and promotional piece if I do say so myself.
