Just do pretty much tricks like levitation with the Invisible thread and once they say "I can do that!" Give them the thing your levitating but not the Invisible tread and watch them embrass themselves Or you should you the invisble tread rod where you just tuck it in your sleeve and levitate thing by choosing how much thread you want and do the same thing

You do not want to challenge hecklers. You definately don't want to directly insult someone because, in this day, they could have a gun and be a little "edgey."

Why would I hug a heckler? jk .. It's spelt embarrass anyways yeah I woudnt want to embarrass hecklers because sometimes it can start a fight. If you do levitation like levitating stuff.. theyll say something like "there is an invisible thread" so it's pretty useless to do those.

Shouldn't you do those tricks anyways if they are that strong? Essentially, you should learn to avoid hecklers whenever possible... And, you should practice your magic, misdirection, and presentation to the point that you do not leave yourself open for people to criticize you.

there are diff kind of hecklers


The kind at school that look at your every move and try to go for the chance to hit you for a faulty move..jus hand them the deck of cards and say "then do it"
then the kind that you see once and you dont even know them then you say, " u think you can do it?" and hand them the deck of cards... :P

the handing them the deck of cards and saying DO IT works for me every time

I wouldnt suggest doing the 2 card monte. When you say "without looking, tell me what card you think you have", they will most likely turn it over

i think that the best way to handle a heckler is to learn audience management. if i'm dealing with a grabby heckler, i always make it a point to tell them beforehand, "please. no touching." i remember playing the 3 dominoe monte game (i posted an interactive flash video of this game at the penguin theater.) and i had a heckler literally snatch one of the dominoes while i was in the middle of moving them around, they of course found nothing wrong with the dominoe they had but you can imagine how pissed i was :evil: :evil: :evil:

other than that, i love the handing them the deck of cards and saying "do it" idea :wink:
