I suggest reading the other threads in this forum.

There's some good advice here and there have been plenty of others in your place.

Bring a baseball bat to school, and whenever someone says they know how you did an effect, beat him in the head until he forgets. Remember, wear a mask though.

Seriously though, make a joke. You can use things like insults, if it works for you. I use insults and vulgar language quite often, just because it fits my style. For instance, if someone would say a trick is easy, I would come back with, "Yeah, your mom was easy too, but I don't brag about that." Now that may not fit you, and it may not be the best approach, especially for school. But it works for me, as it fits my style. This method can get you in quite a bit of trouble though.

Another way is to simply ignore them. Sometimes this works, other times it works against you. A heckler can completely screw over your show, as they take the attention from you.

For the most part, a witty comment would probably be best. Something like, "Well, you're a better man then me. I still can't figure out how I did it." Or, "I know what you think, and yes, I have very quick hands."

Simple solution...DON"T PERFORM AROUND THIS GUY!!!

If you have a problem that can't be fixed...AVOID IT! You'll soon learn who to and who not to perform for!

For magic in school try to draw a big group. When it's a big group the people who are interested will take care of the hecklers for you. If they don't, I stop in the middle of the trick and say, "Well I guess because of this guy I won't do magic for you guys anymore" or something like that so the people who want to see the tricks turn on the heckler. I never cuss at them or use vulgar language because I always like to keep the audience on my side. Try it, it works

I had a problam with some guy who ruined my tricks, so one day i put a card in his pocket and when he came to interupt me i stopped the trick and said: "Of course the trick doesn't work, if you'll bring me my queen of diamond already it'll help.." it keeps their mouth shut.

I use this method with hecklers. They always say, what's this for? I'll respond, "See, I'm the paid performer here. There's your share. You are now expected to pick up where I leave off. Here ya go!" I then introduce my partner, and hand him a deck, and away we go! The heckler then has to put up or shut up. Either way, this method is difficult to explain, but has never failed me.

It also beats violence.......
