Yes, I know I'll probably get bashed for this, but I am doing a performance with my friend next Tuesday (May 8th) for the school Talent Show. But, on the other hand, I did not do this just on impulse... I have been planning this out since last May. Well, here's how it's going to go down. My friend and I are going to walk out to Forgotten by Linkin Park, and hopefully to some applause. I'm going to tell the audience (yes, it's a lie, but it's part of the performance) that I had a different routine all planned out with big fancy props, but... Matthew (my friend) called me up the night before and asked if he could do a magic trick with me for the Talent Show. Of course, him being my best friend and all, I said yes. So therefore, I ditched all the fancy props and, instead, brought my single most valuable prop... my invisible deck. I will then take my "invisible deck" and have Matthew shuffle it (I will use the "you gotta take it out of the box first gag), walk out into the audience, and have a spectator select a card from the Invisible Deck. They will then continue by showing the card to the rest of the audience, and putting it back inside the deck upside down. They will then walk back down (with Matthew) to where I am at. I will take the "invisible deck", and hit it against my jacket pocket. Amazingly, there is now a real deck inside! I politely ask the spectator what their card is, and reveal it to be the only face down card in the deck. Finally, Matthew and I will bow, and walk off stage to thunderous roars of applause. There are a couple other aspects I would like to discuss. First off, our wardrobe. I will be wearing black dress slacks or jeans (can't really decide), nice black shoes, my Born to Perform T-Shirt, and a black suit jacket. Matthew will be wearing the same, except with a different shirt, because he doesn't have a Born to Perform T-Shirt. Secondly, our "characters". I am planning on having me do all the talking, and Matthew be absolutely silent during the routine, but if you guys feel he should talk, I am open to suggestions. Once again, this is not a thread asking what to do for a Talent Show that I haven't thought/planned for. I am simply asking how you guys think it will go, and if there is anything that you feel I should absolutely change before we perform. I am planning on having a video of it, but I'm not so sure that that will happen. Thanks for reading, and please don't bash me.
