What you need to learn is it is not the "tricks" that make a performance. It is the presentation. A pro can take the simplest trick there is and can get a great reaction. It's not about the tricks.

Well, that's a start.

I prefer things that play to more than one person at a time. Even a simple TT silk vanish can be played to a moderately large crowd. It works great as you're building up the the good stuff.

Oh, right! guess I'll stop practicing my Top Shot, SINCE I CAN GET JUST ABOUT THE SAME REACTION WITH THE BIDDLE TRICK!

Now you're getting it. I've seen (on video) Gazzo hold the attention of 100 people with just a piece of rope. He didn't even do anything with it!

I sat through Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. And it was definitely more dull than watching Gazzo hold a piece of rope.

Maybe you should stop spamming and listen to him... he's right. I would rather watch Gazzo hold a piece of rope then watch some kid stumble around with a pen going, "Watch, look, watch, look, it's in the dollar... oh, now it's not, and the dollar is back to normal!" The performer gets the reactions, not the effect.

Last week, I was performing some magic at my local mall (it was for a television show I'm producing for my Community Access channel). The most amazing reactions were from simple effects. I used the color changing ball to square trick (or whatever it's called) and it was shocking people. A very simple effect, but with the right presentation, it plays big.

Gazzo is a great example of how presentation is what makes it big. He does a simple silk vanish and production. Nothing special, but it's very entertaining.
