This is worldwide. I just returned from London and heard the buskers there using at least half of these. And all the magicians were doing Gazo's cups and balls.

The other "jokes" that were repeated ad nasueum were, "Is there anybody here who doesn't speak English?....Then how do you know what I asked?"

and (to the mother of a young volunteer)

"Is this little boy your son? Well I promise that if anything happens to him during the show....I will help you make another one."

This is a fantastic video. That being said, I feel like a couple of the lines aren't terrible, but the video was hilarious.

If I hear "Stand right here... yeah, right on the trapdoor." again, I'm going to cry.

LOL! Ken Weber has a similar section in his book "Maximum Entertainment." It's definitely worth checking out.

I always use the line: "How did you do that?" "Very well".

Sadface

But this video made me laugh. It seems to be doing the rounds, T11 has it too.

I was showing a trick to my kids and their spouses (all college age) and made the mistake of saying something like "hey, let's try this experiment"

They ALL immediately said they were so sick of that stupid line - apparently "everyone" uses it now. Yeah... I need some original material.... :lol:

Or, you can combine some of the lines,

"Could you do me a favor, and stand on the bloody spot"

LOL 8) I might just randomly say that at my next show.
