I get many of the ones already mentioned plus:

Do you do magic for all your kid's friends?
I bet your husband is afraid of you.
I bet your kid really loves you being his mom.

I find the last two comments sort of weird!!

So this is something I wanted to do but I could never fit it with my character so I don't do it.

Get one of those counter things that they use to count people when they come through a door at a bar or club. Put the counter on one of those reel like things that a janitor would keep keys on. Hook it to your belt. When someone says something that you've heard a million times before, reach under your coat, pull out the counter and click it, say a number in the thousands, then put the counter back, say "OK then", and move on.

I think that would be really funny if handled right. If someone tries it, let me know how it works out.

"Oh wow, magic really makes me hot. Would you like to go back to my place?"

Oh, sorry, I was in the middle of a fantasy when I answered the question.

When someone asks, “How’d you do that?” I usually just smile at them. They usually don’t expect a response.

If someone pleads to learn how a trick is done, I always just tell them the truth, which is that I promised not to tell.

Suzanne, that is a great idea and could be used in many circumstances with a volunteer. I'll probably use that.
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.

A hundred years old, but my response is:
"Can you keep a secret?" (yes) "So can I."

To buy a prop is nothing.
To write a good routine is something.
To really entertain an audience is everything.

Avin. I think the Topic is questions you get asked, not questions you would LIKE to get asked. LOL. Jokes.

After performing a couple thousand shows over the years these are the most common questions I get asked.

99% of the time when leaving a show people ask:
Do you need a hand?
I always look confused and look down at my hands and reply...well I've got two already thanks, but I can use some help.

Can you make my husband/wife dissapear?

Do you have a boyfriend?

Some are born idiots.

Some are made idiots.

Some have idiocy thrust upon them.

Q-Are those magic cards?
A-NO they are normal cards, magic hands

Q- Whats your phone number. LOL

After doing close-up magic for adults
Q-DO you do kids parties
If you can't laugh at yourself, you are obviously not getting the joke

When people see my act they never say "How do you do that", it's usually "Why do you do that"?

When people ask me "How did you do that" I always say "A good magician never tells his tricks, and neither will I!"

I sometimes get "Can you make my credit card bill disapear?". My usual answer is "Yes! Absolutly!!! However, be warned that it usually reappears one month later... With overdue charges!"
