My whole life just flashed before me. :lol: I love walking up to random people, placing my hand on their shoulder, and saying "Ed Marlo."

"So I booked the gig, what tricks should I do."

I wish I had a dollar for everytime I heard that on this forum over the last 9 years. :lol:

I don't really like the video. Alot of what he says I can totally imagine a professional saying, but with a whole lot of charisma. But for the life of me, I can't think of anything that rediculous that a magician says.

Most beginners start out like that when they are searching for their own magic persona. The video was a joke mocking the over-embellishment process, and some of the old habits that stay with you, although not as over-exaggerated as they once were. The video is hilarious, especially to someone such as myself who has been in the art for 31 years, and pretty has heard all the lingo long ago. I could also see one making a comedy routine out of this. But as I said most beginners usually start off trying to emulate other performers before find their own magic personality, and try to over-sell it all. it is all part of the learning process, and most quit the art before ever find their own magic persona.

I would say think of a word on the first line of the page...a big word...a word that begins with the letter P would be even more delightful! Was it propaganda? YES!! Amazing!!" lol.

"In my wallet there is one card, and ONLY one card." Only cool magicians carry around oversized wallets that no one has ever seen before in their breast pocket. :lol:

Now THAT is kinda funny. Maybe I am just a bit too serious.

Another thing always oversaid. "Watch..." "Watch very carefully..." Or in Blaine's case, "Look look look look look watch watch look no look watch." lol.
