Dropped deck of cards: Hmm, there much be a hole in my hand.

Single dropped card: 1) Was this your card? 2) Stupid gravity. 3) MAN DOWN!!!!! *Dives after the card*

Trick gone wrong: 1) It doesn't look half bad from my side. 2) Now, see, this is what magicians call "Misdirection". While I'm in here messing up this trick, my assistant is sneaking an elephant into the next room. Go ahead, check! *Runs away*

When nobody laughs at a joke: 1) I'll have a funeral for that joke tomorrow at noon. 2) What is this: an audience or an oil painting/jury?

Random jokes: 1) This trick is performed in front of a live audience. You'll have to wait until they get here. 2) My fingers never leave my hand.

Heckler stoppers: 1) You are really great, man! You should be on a stage! There's one leaving in 10 minutes. 2) You have a striking face. How many times were you struck there? 3) You've got lovely hair - coming out of your nostrils! :lol:

Heh, that one's prety funny too. Here's some more:

Random Jokes: 1) How many people have never seen me before? Okay, now how many people are seeing me for the first time? 2) So, where are you from? "New Jersey." Im sorry? "New Jersey." No, I heard you, I'm just sorry. 3) This trick can be done by any 10 year old with 15 years of practice. 4) One time I accidentally cut off a boy's ear. I said sorry, but I don't think he heard me.

When hecklers are acting up: 1) Yeah, I remember when I had my first beer... 2) Don't put me down! We're made from the same mold. Well, actually, you're a lot moldier that I am. 3) You're a saint...a Saint Bernard.

Magic is entertainment, and so is comedy. Even if you messed up a trick, you can still be the focus of entertainment by makeing them laugh. Take this suggestion for example...

You dropped a deck of cards onto the floor attempting some sleight of hand. Now think of your greatest effect that you have showed the audiance earlier... For example the hummingbird effect, here is what you say...

"He can make a card float in mid air but he can't handle a deck of playing cards."


This is kind of a steal off of what david copperfield said when he almost tripped down the stage stairs...

"He can make the statue of liberty disapear but he cant walk down a flight of stairs."



Have fun with it...

i usually just find a way of moving into another trick without it looking like two tricks etc. Such as a card finding routine in an ACR

When screwing up a trick: I was wondering why nobody bought this trick from me.

im only 14 but this one goes down quite well if your doing an elastic band routine or a heckler is bothering you :

Me:OK, has anyone lost a load of £20 notes/20$ bills wrapped in a rubber band?
Heckler/Speccy:Yeah!!! I did.
Me:Well then, here you go, i found the rubber band :lol:

(terrible i know but it works well :D )

I just tend to use the line "Oh [edited], I [edited] that up. Next trick".

Or just "And give the deck a flick, and your card not only jumps to the top, but its also changed into a completely different card".
