I've been performing some magic and most of the time when I do a trick the spectator doesn't seem to be entertained because there's no comedy in my performance. My weakest part of my performance is that I'm not really funny and can't come up with jokes while doing magic tricks. Does anyone have any advice on how to be humorous and funny? I read the article about jokes on penguin and it didn't seem to help too much.

well point out the obvious stuff thats wut i do, like if your diong a rope trick before u start say somthing like, "and umm for the slower people out there this is a ROPE trick involving 3 pieces of rope" or somthing like that, just kinda go with the flow, the best way is to watch magicians perform and get a sence of their style, and make it your own with some changes.

or I saw "I have here 3 ropes. who here is from Olatha (a city near me) *some people raise their hands* then I'll repeat myself, I have 3 ropes" it gets a good laugh
