 Post subject: People won't leave my booth

When given a choice, I pick my audience (non-Hecklers) but what do you say to people who just won't leave??

I worked at a booth at a Kid's Carnvial, and it bugs me when people just stay the whole day to figure out my tricks. When they figure it out (after seeing it about 10 times) they would say "I know what you did" and ruin it for everybody.

Any idea for a good line to say?

To bad you are stuck at the booth and not able to move around at the carnival. If possible walk off and take a break for about 15 min. then come back. When you come back you could do a different routine and then walk away again if you need to. Hopefully by then they would have moved on.
You could always ask nicely for them to please allow other people the chance to see and enjoy the show.

Perform in 15, 20, 25 minute blocks. You choose the amount of time you perform. Then take a 15 minute break. Tell everyone, "Thanks for watching". That signals the end of your mini-show. People will naturally leave if there is nothing to see. As soon as they leave, if you're ready to start again, then do so. Otherwise, take the full 15 minute break.

do not perform the same effect over and over. learn some new stuff or new ways to accomplish the same effect, that way it slips them up and/or they aee something new each time.

do not give them the chance to figure it out. 8)
