Don't You Guys Just Hate Hecklers?
No, I'm not talking about hackers...
I mean hecklers people! Hecklers are those annoying people that interrupt your show and reveals secrets to the tricks that you are performing.
They either know how the trick is done, or they already saw you before and happen to be in the middle of the crowd again...
Most of the times they are jealous, and they try to mess you up purposely or even say things like: "Why don't you let me
shuffle the deck?"
I just hate that during my perfomances, so here's what I do to prevent that from happening to me:
I don't use gimmicked decks:
I like to hand the deck to them and let them search me all they want untill I prove my point.
That includes marked decks, svengali decks, stripper decks, etc.
I perform "sucker tricks" on them:
A Sucker Trick is a trick where the audience thinks they know how it works only to discover that the magician was a step ahead of them the whole time.
Another words... I borrow a quarter from a spectator, let them sign it with a sharpie, do a quick retention vanish and retrieve their coin from my pocket. Now, if they "think" they know how the trick was done, simply vanish it again using a different method
. (Like the thumb clip, fake take, etc.) Then, make it re-appear it in your pocket.
Finally, when you hand them their signed quarter for inspections, do a fake take and re-vanish it on their hands.
That shows them that they are wrong about the trick, and you
just fooled them in the middle of the crowd.
Also keep in mind that you have to choose your speactators wisely, and you should never
repeat a trick to the same sectator.
Good Luck to You Guys.
