I like to make it performance specific (making it clear I'm referring to THIS particular performance). If they know you're talking about this particular performance, you can sometimes get a longer gag out of it.

Spec: How loing have you been doing magic?
Me: Uh, 2minutes and 13 seconds. Why do you ask?
Spec: No, I meant how long have you been performing?
Me: I just told you, it's been 2 minutes and . . . well now it's 25seconds, since we started.
Spec: No, I meant how long have you been practicing?
Me: I practiced before I got here, this is the actual show. . .
Spec: I mean, How long have you been interested in magic?
Me: My interest varies from day to day, it's sad really. I happen to have ADD, which of course stands for Attention Deficit - that's a nice shirt, where'd you get it?

If you can keep the wordplay going, it's a great gag; and it allows you to avoid the long drawn out conversations that tend to follow the "How long have you been doing magic?" question.



That is really funny lol![/b]

FOr the how long have you been doing magic question my personal favourate is

"I did my first show at 8.....or was it quarter past"

That gets a laugh.

I was making a balloon golf bag for someone, and the person asked me, "Do you play golf?"

I smiled at him and said, "No, I am sorry. I have lost too many friends to drunk driving!"

It took a few seconds for it to set in... they laughed and the next person said, "seriously, do you golf?"

Not missing a beat... "Nope, don't have the balls to do it".

This got another laugh. The next person had to ask (to test me I think)... "Well, I golf do you?"...

Not missing a beat... "Not since my brother WEDGED me in the cart!"

It now was a running gag... next person asked... "Do you golf?"

Not missing a beat... "Can't my car was stolen apparently I wasn't using a CLUB.

Last, guy asked... "Well you know I have to ask... Do you golf?"

I responded...

"FOUR (stretching it out as golfers do) many years, but I am getting too old to PUTTER around the greens like I used to."

The guys all said... WOW you are good!

I thanked them and said, "Thank you. I like to keep my jokes ABOVE PAR".
