I feel if indeed we are magicians 24/7 (a premise with which I wholeheatedly disagree) at least be a professional magician. Why bring down your value by attemting something that you have NEVER done only to prove something to someone who challenged you? If you want to be always on then certianly you should at least carry some professional tricks with you to do so. By being "on" constantly you really set yourself up for failure.

Best of luck

"I'm terribly sorry, but my parents taught me not to play with other people's food. Not to mention that the Health Department frowns on the staff directly handling the food once it leaves the kitchen and the Chef gets really upset when we do." If they insist, look at them and say, "Do you really want to antagonize a guy with a meat cleaver THIS BIG?" if they continue to insist, "who used to work for the Post Office?" (or was in Special Forces, played professional football, uses steroids, or has a bad case of road rage)...

You get the idea... Handling the guest's food is never a good idea. If the other tables see you doing it, they will NOT want you to visit THEM! Trust me on this!

As you're thinking on it, take another fry and bite half, keeping the other half concealed. Now do torn and restored french fry. I do this _all the time_ and it absolutely kills. You could follow up with the classic "shake vanish of a match", and show the fry reappeared in your mouth.

Normally, I would say no to a request to "do something with this", or even "do some magic". I normally ask "what do you do?" (eg electrician) then say "all right, fix my fridge and I'll show you a trick", just to show them how absurd it is to work on command.

I agree that a performer shouldn't be like a trained seal. The performer should turn down some requests, because the performer is supposed to be an artist - someone who knows what's worth performing. Otherwise, why does the audience need him?

I might eat the fry, remark about how good it is and start eating the rest of their fries. That'll teach 'em. lol
