Bieing a teenager, I find myself performing my tricks to other teenagers at school. There are several problems wit h this, which I hope you guys on the forum can help me with:

- There's usually one guy in the group watching, who may pick up on something and then begin to narrate my trick as I am performing it! The cheek! It's like one of those magic specials when you see the magician, and there's a voiceover which explains the secrets! Should I just stop the trick, or come up with a good one-liner instead?

- Another situation is when I perform a trick to one group, and then show another group the same trick afterwards, but a few people stay and watch the trick again. If I don't do the trick, those who deserve to see it do not, and if I do perform the trick, the less deserving will soon work it out. How should I deal with this?

(your first situation)
I believe many here had already posted what they would do in this situation..

I love this line the best:-
"I did this trick for a bunch of five year olds yesterday and there was one kid that was acting just like you" -sorry for not giving credit to whoever due, i forgotton where i read this- :oops:

(2nd situation)
Simply switch to another trick, you can't be equiping yourself with just one trick...
