If a spectator is heckling it isn't that something is wrong with the spectator....
it's that you need better crowd control...
The above advice, while funny, would lose the support of the rest of the crowd.
When somebody starts getting out of hand, I try to deal with them positively, but give some hints that convince his/her friends to calm him down.
I had one guy who went on and on once though... he said 'I know that's impossible, you had to have done something' (really specific, huh)
and I started talking about movies... (I use movies in my patter a lot) and I ask if anybody saw the movie (ANY MOVIE HERE)
and I mention the scene where the hero dies as I'm shuffling. Then I put the deck down, and remark, "but you know what makes me angry, I just saw (ACTOR NAME) on TV yesterday. He wasn't even bruised....
I can't believe they tried to decieve me like that...[melodramatically] He didn't really die!!!
I am looking straight at the guy as I finish the last sentence.
he got the point,.
That was REALLY good, maybe I'll stop kicking people in the Ding-ding from now on
But, seriously that was a really good point.
