As for me, I perform Sean McCree's Myopia whenever I can. As he would say, it's 'bril-li-yant stoof'. :D

I do the Comedy Split Deck that Viking Magic sells. It's visual, uses two volunteers, and there's plenty of opportunity for improv. I try to perform it with a married or dating couple as volunteers, "testing" to see whether they think alike. When their selections don't match, the "dominant" one in the relationship will presumably have picked the card that matches the prediction card - that's good for a gag or two, with usually at least one coming from the audience or the volunteers themselves. Then the tension is broken with the funny reveal, and all is well.

Martin Lewis' Comedy Come Back Card...

I make most of my tricks comedic, cards or otherwise. It's not the trick so much as the patter I create for each effect.

That being said, Daryl's Poppa Rabbit Hits the Big Time comes with some inherently funny patter and is fun to perform.

I've been doing the McCombical Deck now for the past few months and it gets the laughs from adults and kids.

For the "Now that's funny" section, it seems nobody has a sense of humor. Pretty ironic huh?
Message: Posted by: Jerskin (Dec 8, 2008 07:11PM)
Not at all if you hung out with comedians...

Yea it is pretty odd how they only seem to get their own jokes. With the possible exception of those jokes they tend to steal from others.
