I usually tell them that I don't know what they're talking about. I had a lady ask me what I was thinking about when I do my metal bending routine. It's kind of interesting.

Gimme 10 bucks i'll teach you :D . And this guy actually gave me 10 bucks for learning the David Blaine shot trick muahah. It's also good to freak them out and stare em at the eye for a long time.

another thing I like to do is

"how did you do that"


"I didnt, you did"

I like this with mentalism effects

After doing a Scotch and Soda trick for a waitress, (was a bet that I could make one of the coins disapear in her hands for a round of free drinks) she demanded to know how I did it.

I told her that I attended school at Hogwarts.

She replied "I didn't know that was a REAL school!"

I swear.

And just think. People like her are responsible for cooking your food and giving it to you. That'll give you faith in the ol' system, won't it?

I generally don't get the "How'd you do that?" question because I don't present as though it's a puzzle to be solved. I usually just get the "Daaaayummm" response.

When I do get the "How'd you do that?" question, I answer with a shrug, a little smile, and a light chuckle. Then I go on.

i usually just say "magic", or if "i told you than it wouldnt be a secret" you know something like that, so i can add a little humour in.

Peace

If they ask where your wand is tell them that they are a untrue spec and they shall burn in edited :twisted: . (skip the edited part if you are at a paid gig)


You just gave me an awesome idea. I'll buy the wand from penguin, and carry it with me, and whenever they ask how I do a trick, I'll just bust out my wand :D
