I voted comedian.
To be a magician all you have to do is study up on illusions and the human mind and shit. To be a comedian you have to have originality, good flow, people have to be able to understand what you're saying/referencing and it's something that is really popular and very competitive whereas magicians are just doing retarded hookie pookie things and shit. No one cares much about originality and understanding there nor is it as competitive as comedy. And I don't mean stand-up comedy alone. That counds for TV skits and books, and what else.
