You either have some hardcore hecklers or you really need to practice. Anyways:

The Attack:
"You suck!"

Responses:
"I'd agree, but no one else seems to think so."
"Look, if you really wanted attention, you could run around this place naked. You might end up scaring some people though."
"I'd let you try, but according to you, this already looks bad enough."

The Attack:
"That's so easy!"

Responses:
"You're right, it is."
"When did I say it was hard?"


That's all I can really think of right now. None of its really that great lol, just dumb things that would come out of my mouth.

If you come off as unprofessional or as weak, people are going to run all over you. IT's like that in magic, work, school... LIFE PERIOD. So dont come off as weak to anyone, if people say, "o i saw that, or i know how you do it" they will soon forget what happened, since u are hitting them with so much effects. They will doubt themselves, no matter what. If one person saw something it will be too hard to explain to the other members of the audience. Trust me guys it works, just ignore the hecklers, and the other people with think that you are amazing. The hecklers can't help but have fun because if they figure out one thing in your effect, the other things wont add up, and soon enough they will get confused! This is my way to handle hecklers.

A very bad way to go about it. A half way funny person Could make you look like a moron if you gave him this chance. Its also a bed idea because thats not going to make people want to watch. This makes it become a "hey look what i can do but you cant" game. Thats not what you should be going for.

The best way about it is going on yourslef. I love to do that. "Hey that sucks". "I know, im just a jesus wannabe who cant tun water into wine. Im sure you have that down though. Why dont you go look for your flask" Any jokingly polite way to ask them to leave is the way too go.

no, that is actually in my opinion coming off as weak. IT's obvious that they cannot do the things that u are performing, so that's evident. If u back off and let them say that it was easy and what not, you come off as weak. When u have them try to bite the quarter, it makes them seem stupid, and they won't quetion your effects ne more, trust me it works

Personally, I always avoid direct insults, profanity and rough language (and I live in Australia!) If you always keep your presentation clean (and polite) you do better in the long run, and come off looking professional and (dare I say it) superior to the heckler. In my experience, especially if you are dignified in your presentation (Not stuffy, but working with dignity as an entertainer) the audience will shut the heckler up for you.

Weak and strong? You might want to read Sankeys book. Specifically, magic as a blood sport. Im not going to make anyone think that "I can do things they cant". Thats why I snag on my self. SO if anyone gets that vibe, they can loosen up and understand that I dont want to be taken as some "master magician" that demands respect. Because sooner or later your going to get a guy that can go line for line. He'll take you up on your offer, pretend to bite the coin scream something like "Who wants to touch me!" toss the coin at your feet. "something for your troubles". Then walk away telling you to call hime back when your going to pull a rabbit out of your behind.
