My name is Mike and I love magic, everybody who knows me (family included) has no idea that I know how to do magic, they have no idea that I know how to make coins dissapear right in peoples palms or even pull off David blaine tricks like they are old news (well, I guess they kind of already are huh?).

But what do I love the most about magic? The fact that when I perform (only bar & street) I act like I have no idea on what the heck I'm about to do - my most embarassing moment is when I told a friend at a bar that I was going to make a coin dissapear in my hand and then make it reappear in a bartenders pocket who was all the way at the end of the bar - I made the coin vanish with ease - but I was so embarassed when I called the bartender over and the coin was not in her pocket - now keep in mind, any performers face would turn red when you start a trick loud enough so the whole bar hears.

So my friend then says I could use a beer, he orders a beer for both us and at the same time I walk out of the bar to go get a pack of smokes I left in my vehicle (and to shrug off some of the embarassment).

Upon returning, people were freaking out at the bar, I thought my friend was about to get into a fight, but when I got closer people were staring into his beer bottle at a quarter that was sitting on the bottom - I deamanded he tell me how he did that but he just kept looking at me with his eyes wide open and everybody in the bar was looking at him in amazement.

Ya know, you put all that work into magic and your friend gets all the glory, go figure huh?

Oh by the way, I think I am pretty darn good at comedic magic as well.

Welcome to the Cafe!

Gotta love those moments of randomness that happen, my reputation is actually built on a lot of those....just don't tell my friends..

HELLO RIVAL11, Smile Smile Smile
You will be the judge whether you are a magi or not. Welcome to the number one Café on the net. I am more than sure if you stay in the Café for a period of time, you will find the right answer to your question. Please have a cup of strong Turkish coffee on my bill.

Magically Yours,

Welcome Friend Rival11!

As for acting as though you don't know what is happening, that sounds a lot like my real situtation!

I am as amazed as my audience when this stuff works Smile

And it is great fun for all of us!

Good to have you join us!

If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.

Well met Rival!

As you grow in experience, you will learn how to plan 'outs' for those cases when something goes wrong.

Thanks everyone,

By the way, the above story is true and I was the one who pulled off all the magic.

Thanks for the Turkish coffee Tora, good stuff.
