Bad idea. Anything gimmicked is too much of a risk


I agree. ESPECIALLY IN FRONT OF HECKLERS!!!!

Any adult who feels that have to heckle or expose a 6 year old is a complete loser and I think most people recognize that. Therefore, saying anything to the heckler probably won't do any good. If I ever encounter that situation I would probably say something directly to the 6 year old and try to make the 6 year old the *hero* somehow. I might say something like, "you should feel very proud -not only did you do an amazing trick, you also distracted this *gentleman* from stealing candy from that baby in the stroller over there." Then again, I might just punch him in the nose.

You know I found it weird after doing Oz's version of two card monte hundreds of times to different people, that it's the women who are more likely to turn over the cards during the performance rather than the men, its pretty weird.

Hey guys,
I got this tip from another magic dealer but , it said that "you should preform tricks with gimmicks for women. THey like to be tricked most of the time. Many men don't liked to be tricked. " Im not sure if that is actually true though. My best advice is to just get out of there.

Yeah that is absolutely true. As a general rule use gimmicks less with men, and use gimmicks a lot more with women. And NEVER use gimmicks with hecklers if possible. Women usually don't mind or like to be tricked, men sometimes don't mind, but sometimes do, and of course a heckler is out to get you and prove how much smarter he is than you. So I absolutely agree with that.

And I hate hecklers too, but don't feel so sorry for little kids cause once n awhile there is an exceptional one who turns out to be a heckler. Hard to believe yes, but since they're younger they think in simpler ways and often figure out tricks easier than adults, and of course they'll give it away. But then again you can't get too mad at little kids, im always amazed if I ever see one catch a trick, which I've only seen one time, but it happens. So they can be hecklers and people can be hecklers to them, its not like they're always harmless when it comes to tricks. A simple mind can solve a simple trick.
