I would choose your audience carefully. If it were middle-aged people, I probably wouldn't try it. Because seniors and kids probably have either forgot it/never even heard of it. So, choose wisely :wink:

Kids have a different way of seeing things, they don't watch your hands looking for anything to burn so i find it harder to do magic for them. Older people aren't as amused. I find that smart people are really suckers for stuff because they have preconceived notions about the things we do that are usually wrong, they think too logically and often misdirect themselves. kind of like the old;
" keep
off the
the grass" trick. if you show this to them briefly they will see keep off the grass whereas others might read it more slowly and see 2 the's.
As far as spoon bending, you can fool anybody if you do it right. Making one bend might make them go, "Hold on......" then they watch you more closely because most magicians won't do the same thing twice, Then you twist the corkscrew in their hands and they get baffled. The "optical bend" is pretty good, too. The visual bends, i feel, are best.

of course it's an illusion, what are you talking about? The optical bend is an optical illusion but you bend it in the process. Do you know a real way to bend silverware? Its all illusion. As for the saltshaker..........I've never had a problem with this. I do the coin routine, where the napkined shaker is just for cover. Then go into some over the top stuff.
