Just say, actually, I'm a geek. In magic, geek is a form of shocking and bizzare magic, let me show you what I mean...*then perform Sick or Thread or something*
Never had it happen though, everyone thinks it's cool.
Hahaha...I'm just picturing a horribly nerdy magician saying that. It seems totally geeky to say that and to laymen it doesn't make sense. To them, they would be thinking, "Why would geek mean "a form of shocking and bizzare magic?" Sorry but I don't think that approach would work very well...
And since we're talking about nerds and magicians, check out this sad/hilarious blog. http://www.badmagicphotos.blogspot.com
Maybe you'll (meaning the whole forum, not just you Kris, I don't want any misunderstandings
) look at your magic photos and see them through a laymen's perspective. Is your hair, outfit, props, etc outdated? Are you still holding a top hat and rabbit? Are you making strange magic poses toward the camera? If so, change your promo photos, PLEASE!
