The picture of Chriss angel under your name adds to the irony of this post.

A magician isn't a nerd unless they present themselves as one. Use a two-foot long magic wand, dress up in a top hat, and talk about ancient rituals, then yes, YOU ARE A NERD.

But if you stay cool, put some sarcasm in your patter, and dress up nice (this includes hair and shoes), you can avoid the nerd thing completely...

Or you could just be like Criss Angel and sport the "emo" look. XD

use that lady thing. be like, youll be calling me a nerd later when im showing your girl my wand. you dont want to be a [edited] to your audiences, but when someone personally attacks you, all is fair in love and war. so dont be affraid to become a total [edited], but only to that spec. you have to be nice to the other specs.

Actually, Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion, along with Conservation of Angular Momentum, is what makes the world go round.

Wait, that just sounded a bit nerdy right there.


Never mind.........

I am not a nerd magic wise, never have never will.

If you are called a nerd, you might want to work on your presentation, rather than dissing the other guy. That can just make you out to be the [edited], not him.

1st) being a nerd depends on the person.
not on the trick you are doing. Performance and presentation are everything.
If you are a nerd and you are presenting your magic in a nerdy way, maybe you deserved the statement that the heckler gave you.

2)If you dont like being heckled try improving your performance, dont mimic other magicians performances. I REPEAT, DO NOT MIMIC OTHER MAGICIANS PERFORMANCES, IT WILL NOT FIT YOU AND YOU WILL LOOK [edited].
look at who you are, what makes you unique and work on that. Over time it will improve your performance.

3)YOU WILL NOT GET HECKLED IF YOU ARE GIVING A GOOD PERFORMANCE.
I dont know how many times i've told n00bs this.
im being very serious, if your performance lacks presentation of any kind, YOU WILL BE HECKLED.

4)Attacking the heckler back makes you a whiney magician that cant take a joke.

take it like a man, you deserved it for your horrible performance.

Heckling doesn't always have to do with presentation. I'm sure Gazzo gets heckled, and he's one of the best performers in the world, IMO. Yes, normally it does have to do with presentation, but not all the time.

I have never been called a nerd for doing magic tricks. Then again, i just don't fit the image of a nerd. I think it all depends on the person.
