I work all types of events. Many times I am mingling through a crowd doing close-up magic with small groups of 3 or 4 guests at a time. I will spent a few minutes with a group and then move onto the next small group. I go to them. Other events, like the one in this photo, I am at a booth or table. That means that I don't move from there, all night long. There are certain advantages to either approach. When I'm at a booth, I have a table to work with, I can do longer sets of magic, and the people who stop are stopping to see me. When I'm mingling, I use the guest's free hands to hold cards, and I tend to move quicker as I have to get to as many groups as I can. Also, occasionally, I will run into a guest who is not very interested in seeing magic, but they don't want to be rude. It's a drag for both sides. I can sense the lack of interest.

The approach that I take to delivering the magic to the guests varies depending on a load of variables. How many other performers are working, how many guests there are, what the event coordinator wants me to do. I'm comfortable with either mingling or working a booth.
