Look really confused and then say: "How much did I charge you to see this?" Or, for street magic look really terrified and run away screaming like a madman.

If you're easily offended, do not read this. You've been warned.






Look shocked, drop whatever you were using for the trick, and mutter, "Err....have you ever seen a one-eared elephant?" Without waiting for a response, pull one of your pockets inside-out and unzip your pants.

Credit for that one goes to Eddie Fechter.

It would be brilliant if some magic company produced "Misdirection for Dummies". It would save so many tricks gone wrong. The magician could just take out the book, flick through the pages and do the old "look over there" and run thing.

Lol, I thought when you were talking about the Magic for Dummies Book, you meant pull the book out after you messed up, and then look at it as if you were refering to it for what to do next...
I thought that could raise a few laughs.

One of these days I'm going to get some other real "... for dummies" book and stick a sticker over the "Windows XP" or "Internet Explorer" bit of the title, replacing it with either "Magic" or "Misdirection" or "Dealing with Hecklers" or whatever. If I do it well enough, I could use this newly made prop as my universal way of getting out of any sticky situation I might have gotten myself into I could even jot down these golden one-liners posted earlier this thread in the margins of the book.

If a card trick fails, you can't go wrong with Invisible Deck, as long as you make it seem like you were supposed to mess up.

I just smile and say "...this is the next part of the trick." In reality, I'm performing the next trick. Sometimes they go along with it. Sometimes they figure it out.

I did this one today. After the spec saw the queen in her hand, I pretended like that was the climax of the trick. It got great reactions. "How'd you do that?"
