What do you do when you are with relaxing with friends or even in deep conversation, and one enters the room _instructing_ ..."Hey magicman, show me a trick!" ? The attention can initally be great, but it wears off.
They all have seem me perform and know about my magic, so there's no need to impress. The others have the look of "we don't want to see magic now".
I find this very annoying, and I can't refuse. Without being rude, I've said things like:
- "Sure, for a price." (This just gets a laugh)
- "Later, I'm busy." (They just keep insisting)
or I'll just do a old quick gag, like separating my index finger, but by that time I am performing, which is not what I want to do when relaxing and chillin'.
What are some suggestions of controlling these type of 'fans'?
just tell them that they have to leave the room for a min while you set up for a stage trick, then just leave them out of the room and never call them in.
