If they say they were checking you hadn't switched cards you can act slightly offended, and then do a phase using a pass, tilt, vernon replacement or otherwise show that you can't have switched.


I like your idea. :) It will probably embarass the person that is trying to look.

You shouldn't ever try to embarrass anyone.

You should never try to humiliate a spectator, but I think it would be ok for them to feel a bit awkward about being so invasive. It should make them respect you more, not less.

TO MR. openwire

You stated that you have learned to use females in your performances because they are more likely to follow directions. This is contrary to my experience.

As I have seen women usually want to beat you to prove their intelligence; and men want to help because magic interests most men.

If you don't mind, could you send me a PM telling me where you are located? I have been developing a theory that people in certain areas have certain tendancies. If you would prefer not to, don't worry about it.

Oh nevermind. . . Chicago. It's right under your name.


I agree with Openwire, girls usually follow directions better, they seem to want to have fun a bit more. Guys are a bit competitive sometimes and some are smart as*es. I live in San Francisco.

a great way to beat hecklers in a card routine which requires control is to control their card so it is the 2nd one down.
Then when they say its on the top say "no its not, take it and look yourself", then take that card and place it in the middle. And for fooling purposes do a DL and say "see, it still isn't on the top."
After that they'll shut up and let you get on with the trick.

But to be perfectly honest i usually just classic force their card onto them so if anything does go rong (like they put the card in the rong place ect.)
you know exactly what their card is.
And to find it again, just spread thru the deck face up and say "see, your card is completely lost in the pack", get a break under their card, cut the pack, throm in a couple of false shuffles, then continue :D hpe this help :D
