Once while performing an invisible deck routine, I threw the deck to a man in the audience. He threw his hand up in the air to catch it and it was a prosthetic hook! Now, there is nothing wrong with this at all and I am not trying to poke fun at people with disabilities, but needless to say, it DID catch me off guard! I politely asked the man to hand the invisible deck to his wife so she could shuffle the cards. I will never forget that show!

After a trade show in Chicago, I decided to unwind and take in a comedy club show.

During the show, the comic was picking on a guy in the audience and told him to stand up! The guy refused and remained seated at his table the comic was absolutely brutal, and antagonized the guy really bad.

Apparently he needed the guy to stand to do a bit... but when the comic asked the tech to bring up the house lights, it became obvious both to the comic and the rest of the audience that the reason the guy was refusing to stand up was that he was seated in a wheel chair and had no legs!

Wow, that really put the brakes on this guys set! But I'm glad I was in the audience that night! It taught me a valuable lesson about choosing volunteers and making sure that if they do have a physical disability, that they can still carry out the task(s) that I request of them!

It would have been cool if he did stand up though! chorus - ha-lle-lu-jah, ha-lle-lu-jah hallelujah hallelujah ha-lle--lu-jah!
