I agree that the idea is about entertainment. Yet, I wonder that in order to best entertain, we need to know who we are performing too?
I understand fully why some people may feel 'gambling' routines can leave people feel disconnected. In the UK where I am from, going down the casino or gambling isn't common place so to talk about 'this time when..' or gambling is dissonant with their reality and is slightly more disingenuous and to me can sometimes feel less powerful. I have however, seen many wonderful gambling routines. The Sting is a great example of that.

Perhaps the challenge is to consider how best to create magical moments and meaningful interactions with those we perform to - with cards or beyond.

It will just change, I mean the stuff of card magic in 1920 is totally different to the one 1960 and to the one now and to the one tomorrow, and by stuff I don't necessarly mean material, but presentation, the pacing is different (before everything was slower, now everything fast and quickly).
