I like to think of ad-lib one liners as a funny one liner that you can add into most routines. I ussually use these ones.

-did you remeber your card (spec)"yes"both sides?
-hey check your wallet, good now I no where it is.(greg wilson)
-do you no any magic words(spec)-"im no" ok thats a fresh one.


what do you guys use?

Me: (put out my hand) gimmy five.
Spec: (gose to give me high five).

Me: Bucks.

This always gets good laughs.

To quote Harry Blackstone Jr, "Can you tell one card from the other?"
spec: "Yes"
HBJ, "Good, whats the other?"

This was done before a deck of cards was even out of the box.

I once had a guy ask, "Can you pull a rabbit out of a hat - like, right now?!" I happened to have my rabbit silk in my pocket setup for another trick. I told him, "Sorry, I don't have a hat with me." Then, I snatched the baseball cap off his head. Loaded the silk and pulled it out. When he saw the rabbit on the silk his jaw dropped. I laughed and say that it was the best I could do on such short notice. 8)

Of course, none of these are technically "ad libs" they're all rehearsed (I hope!)and memorized one liners.

Ad libs can be rehearsed too, to some degree. But they aren't tossed out there casually but rather reserved for that one perfect moment.

This is my one recent ad-lib shining moment:

At one of the performances I did at my school, I had a fairly large crowd of students and teachers standing around my table. Someone in back of the crowd yelled out "Hey, can you pull a rabbit out of a hat?" Literally without thinking, I said "No, but do you want to see me pull a fox out of the audience?" Of course they said "Yes!"

So I leaned forward, grabbed the arm of the girl's phys-ed teacher, and yanked her towards me!

It went over REALLY well :lol: (I think she liked it too!)

My best one was during that awful time when the phrase "That's what she said..." was circulating heavily.

After performing a trick (I don't recall which one) some woman asked "do it again." Instead of answering with that awful one liner, I said "What?" She repeated the request. I replied "I heard you, I'm just not used to hearing women say that."

Same basic meaning, but much less chauvinistic.
