Spectator: I saw that!
You: Saw What?
Spectator: I know how you did it!
You: Dude... that's awesome, can you tell me, I'm still working it out...

for this I would use them as my assistant. Make sure they aren't a had grabber first, then set them up under the guise as an "experiment" only to make them look like a fool in the end.

a good routine for this is somthing with spounge balls turning into either a jumbo ball or a thousand little ones.

on the DVD "on the spot" with greg wilson he has a spounge ball routine with napkins that he keep smaking dissapear over the helper's head. The great part about it is the "assistant" has no idea and everyone else sees what's going on.


this is also good pickup artist trick too.......first you pay more attention to the others in the room then you make her look like a fool...then you show her all the attention she wants - if you can get her away.


magic has to be enjoyable for all even your self , right?

I either make a witty comeback which says I don't even know how it works or I say "if you know so many tricks than show use a few" but in a kind voice. In a poll Americans number one fears were stage fright and public speaking.


That's great for Americans but I live in Canada and most of the people I've performed for aren't stage fright or have a problem with public speaking.

if it is a kid, then they often just wants attention, and if you ignore them they will just go on, keep trying to get attention by telling how its done so this can be usefull:

kid: "I know how you did that!"
magician: "yeah but you dont know how many legs a cow has, do you?"
kid: "I know that!, four!",
magician: "thats right!"

kid get their attention, and magician rather have them tell how many legs a cow has, than how the trick is done.. a perfect contract

I have found when someone say's
Quote:
I know how that's done, I've seen it before.


etc... that by saying:

Quote:
Oh, you've seen this before? You know how this is done? Really? I find that very interesting because there is only one other person that I know of who also performs this particular effect and they only show it to idiots and @ssholes.


typically takes care of that problem.

Not exactly the best way to handle that; That can end badly for you (like a punch to the face or gut), and it turns you into the @ss.

There are much much better ways.

Spec: I know how you did that.

Me: Oh, well don't tell me, I don't want to know.

Always works.

I just ignore them and pretend that I didn't hear what they said.

But here's one of them that gets a laugh:

Spectator: I know how you did that?

Me: Hmmmm, I don't remember giving you a speaking script.
