How can you learn how to do street magic tricks?
All that said, the best way to really learn how to busk performing street magic is to get out there and do it. The streets are a great teacher. You will become a better all-around performer by learning from your mistakes and not repeating them. I’ve performed on The 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica and in New York City. To perform on the Promenade they require you to get a permit, but it’s well worth it (note: it’s easy to obtain, and inexpensive). In New York City a permit is not required unless you use amplification, such as a loudspeaker, megaphone, or stereo in a street performance. So check your local regulations to see if your city requires a permit.
