When I ditch my TT, %98 of the time I put it in my BACK POCKET (opposite of my wallet). It seems everyone that I perform for NEVER ask to see my back pockets, only my front pockets.

that's what I do, hope it helps :wink:

well.. if it's a guy.. reach in your pockets.. and pull them out.. putting the gimmick in your hands.. then when you put your pockets back in.. but the gimmick back in.. and show them your hands..

and now if it's a hot girl.. palm it.. and tell HER to reach in there and feel around in it.. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


I really like that. It seems so obvious, but I've never thought of it. And funny gag too.

You guys actually comply with requests to empty your pockets? Interesting. I ignore these, or usually just tell them I'll do it after I am done.

Do NOT give your audience control.

I'm sure there'd be a market for special magician's trousers (pants) with secret bottoms in the pockets, or other compartments, which can just be done up with velcro. Any gimmicks put in the pockets will fall to the bottom of the trousers in the lining and can be retreived by opening another secret velcro compartment somewhere down the trouser leg.

I might just try and construct some of these from a regular pair of trousers and see if it works.

Tell me what you think!
if those don't exist, you could go and get that idea patented or whatever it is called... make a lot of money selling those to magicians and non-magicians... non-magicians could just use it as extra storage

But if they were sold to non-magicians people would know about them so that would kinda spoil it.

just make a hole at the bottom of your pocket (the inside) and sew an extra pocket behind it

i have an old shirt pocket sewn in the the bottom back hem of my shirt! say you have n itch, and keep the gimmick out of sight, while pretending to scratch.

In case of emergency: yell "holy crap!" and when they look, put it in a napkin! :lol: :lol:

If your using spongeballs, carry a "Squeaker" in your pocket, tell them you have to get the magic squeaker (this gives you a reason to go into your pockets), then palm and switch. When you get confident enough and can properly use isolation of intrest and misdirection you can drop the squeaker or use it to add alittle laughter for the kids.
Magically,
Joseph
Also I say to grabbers, "I don't play with your toys, please don't play with mine".

Follow it with a trick with wands. Ditch the gimmick and get you're wands. Wands are intended, mostly, so that you can get the wand and throw away whatever you're palming. Works wonders, and wands aren't suspicious.

If they cant enjoy my magic without having to try and expose it or figure it out, and cant live in the moment let them find another magician, noone touches my stuff, examinable or not. but to be honest, noone has ever asked me if they can see somthing, or to Empty my pockets.
