What are some good opening routines/tricks for a parlour show?

I user Bill Abbott's 5 Card Opener. It's easy, visual and helps to condition your audience as to how to respond throughout your show. It's a great opener for all age groups!

Bill Abbott's Stabbed and Shot is a good one to open with, as you don't want to carry the final load in your pocket for the whole show. I also like Richard Osterlind's Bank Night. He's not the only one with a Bank Night routine, but his is my favorite. It's on his Mind Mysteries Volume I DVD, and he also covered it in his Penguin Live Lecture.
