BK,
This guy sounds like a real [edited]. SO! you have to treat him as such. He's not a magician or he wouldn't be fingering you out. Get him to himself and ask him what he gets out of it.
Tell him that you think he's a jerk off and you've had all you are going to take from him. Advise him that the next time he comes up "looking" for trouble, that he just found it. Let him know that you will make him swallow a few teeth the next time he messes with you. This of course is if you can back this up.
Bullies and jerks occassionally need to be put in there place and once they see that you aren't going to take it, they will stop.

Man, I hate this guy already and I've never even met him. Magician my [edited]! I agree that a firm punch to the ear might be the best option, but what are the magical solutions to this problem? How can you make a disruptive spectator look like a complete bozo?

Ever hear of Sankey's "The Pen is Mightier" gag? It's a somewhat mean trick. What other "mean tricks" are there?

How extensive are his abilities? Could you fool him with the Raven, maybe acting like you're palming something on purpose to entice him into mauling your hand, only to find it empty? Or would he just rip your shirt off and expose the mechanism in detail to everybody?

Come on all you pros, if Vernon could fool Houdini I'm sure that this heckler can be stumped as well!!

put him on the spot tell him if he can do better step right up and give it a try. Then without exposing what he is doing make him nervous. Tell him his hands look a little shaky and things like that. Put him on the spot best way.

No NO NO!
That's not the way....

U should really make a fool out of this guy.. But doin a trick dosen't get, in my opinion not going to work..

Ok, you do a trick he dosen't get.. Then what?

Everyone is joking about smack him up.. Bet think about it.. I would do it..
I'm saying that Iam smacking everyone if they try to expose my tricks..
BUT, if you are in a school and see this guy EVERY single day... Well, you have a problem, and problem should be solved in SOME way...

Or if you dont want to punch him... well, go for every prank joke, there is on penguin..

like, shoking pen, do the fart spray EVERYTIME he is around... and ALWAYS blaim him for that... and call him the "Fartman", and get the crowd with you...

I have the same problem at my school with this kid. I just misdirect him, and put the coin in my pocket, and say,"Well, for your information, it disappeared." Don't sweat

There are two solutions. And this problem is not exclusive to kids your age. It happens to streets in bars and such. But if you are trying to perform at a school and this guy is around a lot you have the two options. You go to him and talk with him, promising to show him a couple things a week, small things, with his promise to not reveal any information and give you respect. If this is not an option and the guy is really just a jerk then you have to set him up a couple of times and totally prove him wrong. After all if you are a true magician you are going to be ultra prepared for when he is there. Then when you show him he doesnt know what he is talking about, really insult him and get any girls that are there to do the same. Guys really cant take that in highschool can they.

you can just do your tricks when he is not a round so do about 2 or 3 people a time so he wont see a big crowd and walk over there :D

HA! That's funny :lol: . . . . . . . . . $1,000 is a total rip-off, you could do it yourself for 50cents. That's less than one of SmokingMonkey's card wallets. . . 45 cents with a 10% discount.
