Moreau served as an assistant and stable hand to a dentist, Joseph Baugie, who used magic to attract patients using the state name Lespinasse. Later he worked as a waiter at the Cafe de la Chartreuse which the actor turned magician, Dieudonne (1829-1903) opened in Montmartre. Moreau would eventually start performing magic in taverns and coffeehouses. Moreau performed magic mostly of his own creations
