Heyo everyone!

I'll start things off by telling a story from last Wednesday Night at Wendy's! We always go there after out club, so there is always around 15-20 kids there. Just imagine it, we take over the Wendy's...kinda funny.

Anyway, I was performing a few tricks, and I placed my "Magician's Insurance" in my pocket that day. I picked it up a long time ago, but have never felt the need to perform it. So, I was just thinking if it came up and I could use it, I would.

So i started off with chicago opener. THen my next spectator picks a card. Luckily, there was lots of commotion at that point in time, I was able to see the mirror reflection off the window. I peeked the card, and guess what? It was my insurance card. So i said to her, "take the card, show it to everyone." I had another person cover my eyes. After that, I had another person shuffle the cards in the deck.

SOme good acting later, I was fake freaking out. Everyone started to laugh at me! :) Which is the best time to whip out the insurance. I told them I have a backup, an insurance plan for wen things go wrong.

After the revelation, a HUGE response ensued. They were all screaming and laughing in amazement. Go figure, a $4 trick gets one of the best reactions of the night!

So, my lesson in writing this: it really isn't the trick, it's how it is presented. Seems simple enough, but for many, it is not.

Further thoughts: From now on, rather than carrying the bulky fold out insurance, I have created my own. I just typed on a piece of paper, cut it out and put it in my wallet. So, now wherever I go, I will always have my version of "insurance" on me.

Easy trick that has helped me out!

Great story. I also picked up an insurance policy last summer. I have yet to perform it, though I might give it a try after reading this story.

Hey that's cool,

People forget about that trick, but you can totally kill with it. One of the funniest magic routines I've ever seen was with an Insurance Policy.

Good job man,

Keep up the good work!

I absolutely love it when stuff like that happens. I have a similar story under INSANE Coincidence. Things sometimes just happen. (and it becomes useful to know when to peek) :lol:

I have been using the "Magician's Insurance Policy for years! It always kills! I use as a "closer" for a 3-trick routine that I do. The 1st is "The Drunken Shuffle," then I do "The Chicago Opener," & top it off with the Insurance Policy. I've bought several of them so I always have one somewhere.

HUGE REACTIONS!!

Most requested trick of me when I started.

I love this trick, it really gives me a chance to act, which I really love!
