well i saw a documentary on magic ages ago and this english guy says he only does tricks to people when there almost drunk he said americans react better than people in the uk

but i do magic at school sometimes and get hardcore reactions and last year an american girl came to my street to see one of her relatives and i did the raven to here with a coin on her hand and she didnt really understand it so she was just about to walk away and i threw the coin into one of her jacket pockets (perfect shot) and i said look in your pocket and she still didnt get it.

i was just wondering which country has better reactions

I think it was Paul Zenon who said the thing about drunk people having better reactions.

In my opinion people in the UK are still amazed by magic but Americans give the better reaction. The English I would say tend to hide their emotions more but I could be wrong.

For example David Blaine gets people screaming and freaking out after taking a bite out of a quarter. All I get is a "cool" when I do it with a 10p.

EDIT: However, I performed a good "book test" trick to a bunch of my parents and their friends and they all loved it and we all had a good laugh about it.

I've changed my opinion to be that the English give good reactions to tricks but moreso when in larger groups.

You'd get better reactions in the US. I personally think that the majority of people there are more gullible.
