I like to incorporate a few Magic "one liners" before I dazzle em' with my mystic You could call it my magically delicious introduction.

Here are some I'd like to share with you.

- My whole Family had magic when I was growing up. My Grandma had a trick knee. My Father used to do a really cool trick, whenever the bill collector came to the house, he'd disappear for hours. At a young age magic could make me a lot of money, my sister was making $100 bucks a trick**. My Uncle used to perform magic with foam balls, he's taking medication for that now. I used to think, when going to school I was riding in the Magic Bus, but now I realize it was only the short bus that picked me up. I used to do Dove magic, but with my sweaty palms the soap used to slip.....

...Do you have any you'd like to share???

**credit to Michael Finney....I love this guys magic! You Gotta see him!
Believe in yourself and the magic will come.

Well, I'd say "Every one turn around and shake hands with the person behind you" Afet the do that say, "You all aren't the smartest group are you?" lol. I saw this on a movie and figured you could use it. It's pretty funny, man.


"It's in the very trickery that it pleases me. But show me how
the trick is done, and I have lost my interest therein."

At my S.A.M. meeting a member was offering a pile of free junk, er magic.

I picked up an old church key. Later that night I changed a coin into you guessed it "My new opener".

I've used some pretty hokey ones. I used to start my linking ring performance with "Ladies and Gentlemen... The Great Houdini is Dead...The Great Thurston is Dead...The Great Blackstone is Dead...and I'm not feeling too well myself.

Also, such cornball lines as: "Magicians run in my family...usually from their audiences."

And another that you would probably have to modify. "One of my relatives, the Great Harry Blackstone, Sr., started performing under the name of Harry Bouton, he later changed to Fredrick the Great,and finally the Great Blackstone...In the family tradition I have also changed my name several fact to stay employed I've been known to have changed it several times during the course of a single show."

Like I said, pure corn.
Remember to tip the drummer for the rim shots.
"Now here's the man with the 25 cent hands, that two bit magician..."

A famous opener that I'd forgotten about, I believe it was performed by Balentine, was to walk on stage and announce "and now, the famous gloved to dove trick."

Take off the gloves and toss them in the air. After landing on the floor, you act oblivious to it and move on to the next trick.

My grandfather taught me how to do magic. He's old now and it costs too much to keep him in a rest home so, we left him at a rest stop.

Have a really really really big prop on stage with your name on...come on stage waving and smiling at the audience, then fall over the prop, look around and ask "****! how the hell did that get there!" You could then mutter something derogatory about the last act leaving his crap around.

I used to open my comedy show like this- this si the shortned version:

"LAdies and gentlemen, being a magician, I getto travel the world. One of the first thing I like to do when visiting a foreign country is to learn how to introduce myself to people. I tel them my name is Kobi (stage name) and I go through the different languages and tell the audience how to pronounce my name.

In English, Kobi
IN French, Kobe( pronounced Ko-Bay)
IN Lithuanian, Kobitus (it's true)
In Polish, Kobski (gets a laugh)
In, Hebrew, CHCKHCKHCKHCC (makes an unintelligble, grinding sound with your mouth)
And in Swahili, <Cluck>

Again, sorry if I offend anyone, but that was my openeing for a while. I am comfotable with various racial groups and they all take it in good humor. Of course, this would be geared toward an adult audience.

I read this one some where and found it hilarious! You say...
"Would the person who lost the elastic band wrapped around the roll of $100 bills please come up here... we have located your elastic band"

Magically yours,
