Topic: Uber and magic

I have begun doing some Uber in the evenings for some extra dollars. I have been thinking about placing a sign that says something like "will perform magic for tips. "

What ideas of which kind of fast tricks I could perform after the ride for a great response?

Anything. If it's after the ride just do something that you can handle performing in the car.

Any card trick, or a prediction with a have a good night message might be nice.

I always have a memorized deck next to me in my drink holder so I can practice false shuffles and knowing my deck order at stoplights. If someone asks why you are doing that you could hand him the deck and do any number of miracles without touching the cards. You might want to consider lawsuits though - it might be difficult to explain why you where shuffling cards as you rear ended someone...

MOABT might be a good option. Use to have it in the car and unsuspecting passengers would just pick it up and read through it. Someone even got to page 30!

Perhaps it's a great situation to set up a card through window in your uber.

"Will perform magic for tips" sign isn't necessary. In the process of driving them to their destination, simply mention that you are a magician.

Haven't run into a uber or a taxi driver that performs magic still waiting for that day to happen.

I think it would be a great a idea to print you business card from a blank card with your hands.
I believe jay sankey have an effect relating to this idea

Being in a car creates a controlled perspective. They can only be where they can be relative to the driver, they won't be watching you from anywhere but predictable angles and distance. Maybe this is a good place for levitating small objects.

This is a good idea you have. You will probably line up shows this way, if that's what you want to do. Turning one side gig into a few paid performances is a great trick.

You can also do some cold reading and multiple outs mentalism effects as well.
