I, the Wizard of Pinball, am a street performer, or Busker, regularly appearing in Old Pasadena, California at the entrance of One Colorado, at the corner of Fair Oaks and Colorado Blvd. on Friday and Saturday nights. Depending on what suits my fancy, it might be Victoria's Secret at 21 W. Colorado Blvd., or 110 W. Colorado Blvd. Ghirradelli Chocolate Co. if I'm in the mood for a San Francisco flare. DISCLAIMERAct Description
It's a weird, wild, wacky, wonderful rush of adrenaline [for me anyway], packed with more jokes than you'll get, a bit of live music, no spuds, and the real secrets of life, fakirwize (pron. FAKE-EAR-WISE.)
Remember that for the squeamish, the young and the young at heart that less shocking and more appropriate entertainment is available:
The cost is a reasonable industry standard of $100 per hour, with a minimum of two hours. Transportation costs, set-up and travel time may be applied. Discounts and reductions may be available to qualified institutions. contact me with a description of your entertainment function and intended audience for more information, customization and a quote. 1-42-42-Wizard (949273)Appeared at
I am no longer a member of the Magic Castle, because my act revolves around revealing the secrets of magic. I have performed at Venice Beach (which sucks,) Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade (hardly worth the permit fee,) Universal City Walk (excellent, once the audition is passed,) the Magic Castle, Hollywood (no longer), Ghirardelli Chocolate Manufactory, San Francisco and Las Vegas, both as a Busker for Main Street Station and in various trade shows like Comdex and Networld/Interop. I have designed shows from period parlour magic to elaborate and extravagant stage shows, performed in mid air, on small tables, balconies, hospitality suites, school auditoriums and cruise ships like the Star Dancer. I am certain that the evening we spend together will be pleasantly surprising, amazing, entertaining and informative.
Have a DisneyMagic day!

It's about Passing-the-Hat, creating fun and giving away smiles.
Buskers can be in a restaurant at your table, or performing on the street.
Venues, methods and pitch. Roll up 'n get 'em here!
Here we discuss Busking as a profession. Whether it be Juggling, Balloons, Magic, Puppets, Vocal or Instrumental Music, Ventriloquism, Poetry, Stilts, Unicycling or something never seen before. The most important question is
`Where can I make my pitch?` which includes safe and legal venues.
Share with us likely crowds and permit requirements if any, tips on better tipping, travel secrets, and anything that will improve Buskers and the public's image of Buskers.
[not included: vending (flowers, food, compact disks…), prostitution (street walkers) or begging (homeless w/cup)]

Board of equalization Seller's Sub-permit required at each location:
No city business licenses are required.
If you are a member of this listing, or would like, on your own website, to link performers, add: #performers to your current location(URL) or you would like to reference busking use #buskers or #busking. For example:
If you are a performer in Old Pasadena and you want to add or update your listing [a really good idea since few have actually provided a description of their act - leaving me to make up one that may not be as flattering as they would like it] then send me by this very U-mail link or even placed by your hand into my hat;
Listings are a complimentary public service and are posted at no charge to Buskers who qualify (a regularly appearing act.) They are sponsored by the members of the SmileBringers coalition, who don't pay me a dime, so updates are infrequently a week to a month. Performers on this list are encouraged to join the SmileBringers coalition in an effort to self-regulate, talk shop, network, provide the ego boosting status quo of membership in an exclusive club (full of lunatics,) attend meetings (informally scheduled on weekends,) VOTE with strength in numbers, but mostly to present busking in Pasadena in a funtastic favorable light to the public and our politicians. Lest we not learn from the mistakes of Santa Monica Buskers.

Imagen de Ilusion
todo lo que te rodea, y tu mismo tambien vez cosas que
aprendes por tu padre, madre, amigos y enemigos.
que cren los grandes magos.
que vienen a nuestras mentes y el poder mas grande en el
mundo es la abilidad de poner ilusion en las mentes de otras
personas separar la imagen de la ilusion.
