But this was my best performance.
I went to the mall and met up with a cople of friends, and we walked over to Target to get a soda. While I was there I saw another freind sitting down at a table, I went and sat next to him and his girlfreind walked up.
When she got there I Pulled up a chair for her in front of me so I could show her a few tricks. I did a penny dime transpo(gregory wilsons), Recapped revisited(also gregs) and half of the Liquid metal rutine(I couldnt finish the other half because there ride was there). The people sitting a little ways down saw me doing the magic and came closer. I showed them they asked me to do the penny transpo so I did. I showed them the other half of Liquid metal rutine, I did recapped again,witch they liked, and then I did GREED. A family behind me was watching me perform for them and they asked if I could perform a few tricks for them so I did.They too asked for the penny dime thing. I was out of forks so I did recapped and GREED again with one of their dollars. I had to leave shortly after.Before I the lady was asking if i practiced witchcraft.

It was really fun perfoming for real people like that.
At one point when I was performing liquid metal to the second group they were afraid to touch the forks.
It was soo fun.I loved all of their reactions.

That's cool that you got great reactions and sparked peoples interest, but you broke the cardinal rule of magic. Don't do the same trick twice for the same audience. The first time they are entertained, but the second time, all they care about is figuring out how the trick is done. Regardless of whether you nailed the tricks the second time or not, just don't do them twice. If you need good excuses for not doing the trick again, look at the outs and one-liners forum. The best way to avoid this is always bring more props then you think you'll need when you perform. Just always be prepared. On the Spot really comes in handy doesn't it?

If you want to read a good example of an impromptu killer performance, check out the post I made earlier.

The groups I did the magic for left after I was done.
No one saw me do the trick more than once.
I got off clean.

You carry around forks when you go to the mall?

Just two for the ruitine.
I have this weird pocket that is long enouh to fit several pairs of forks.
but I usually only take one pair when I am not planning on doing any magic just in case I get the urge to.
