This is for the benefit of members whom ever come across these predictiments. Of course it's most comical with tricks going haywire in this guys performance...but that's what this thread contains...situations and solutions.

Basically...WWYD?

***Now that the Golden girls are back in their seats, you move on to a classic but amazing trick. "The Zombie Ball"

You reach into your bag of tricks and successfully grab the silk and gimmick. Your patter is flawless and the crowd is amazed. Now you got them where you want them. Making your moves so graceful, you are impressed with the control you have...Then Murpy's Law comes knocking. In a second of mishap the large silver orb decides the gimmick hurts and does a bail out over Tokyo on you, falling to the ground and splitting in two. The gimmick is still hidden but the audience doesn't know the difference.

-You smile like a used car salesman and say.....

Sonny, you're an evil, evil man! Remind me to never work any of your bookings!

"Dang union spirits!"

"At my age, I can keep it up just so long."

"I drop more balls than Paris Hilton!" [Dang! I just KNOW that's gonna get edited! :o) ]

And my favorite...: "...um...TA DA!!!"

Actually that one happened to me. I recovered nicely by setting the joint ablaze. They soon forgot about my Zombie malfunction.

This is from a news ( tv ) broadcast I saw the other day. One of the reporters was VERY new, and had some info mixed up.....He said, " Lets see what Dave has to say"......Unfortuantly it wasn't Dave, it was definetly eric. So Eric just says," Yes, I'm Eric" and goes into his schpeal about the story.

Make a joke about being southern or something funny, yet not insulting ( maybe like my expamle! )

Someone screwing up so badly has to make me wonder how he got the gig in the first place.

Please read the whole thread. I am putting out tricks gone bad and hecker shouts in live situations. These posts are for future reference if you ever come to that mishap or heckler in a show, you have a community rescue party quickly at hand. It's a community cheat sheet for cleaning up your mess and being in charge on stage.

Of course this gig is a complete train wreck, but if it were not, this thread wouldnt exsist.

Have fun with these. You'd be surprised on how successful you can be before you encounter that moment with a little help from your friends.

Skip has got some awesome solutions that are quite brilliant Smile

Thanks!

"Dagnabbit, where is the bunny that was supposed to hop out of there?!"

"Folks, THAT is why I stopped juggling torches"

Happy New Year! If anyone in the audience doesn't get it, note that the ball dropped... When they don't find this funny, say, "What, this isn't Broadway?"

In your best Pee Wee Herman impression, give the audience your best 'flew over the handlebars' look, and say, "I meant to do thaaat!"

After each of the above, pick up the ball, and continue on, non-plussed. (I know some of you will stay 'plussed', but, oh well... That's for you, NUMS)

*** As you gather the 2 halves of the blessed Zombie ball and begin to announce your next trick, a portly obnoxious man with a faded Molly Hatchet t-shirt and a red afro shouts out "We wanna see ya cut a lady in half!" This is followed with prodding jeers by the other 2 degenerates seated with him at the table. This table looks like a rough one, especially with all those beer bottles they have accumulated.

(By the way, the bouncer called in sick today at the club. You're on your own,..Bub.)

Checking to insure that my Glock 9mm is loaded and secure in its custom egg bag, I respond:

"Why? Can't handle a whole one?"

[Checking pockets] "Darn! Left that one in my other pants! Sorry, dude!"

Aahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

How about:

Look over at Agnes and her friend...you remember them, right? The widder who's ring you so casually tossed into the audience earlier. "Agnes...keep an eye on these three, will ya?"

Back to the falling TT at the beginning of the show: "There's a theorie in magic that says, when you go on stage never start out with your best routines! ..and that's exactly what I'm doing..."

To the falling zombie: "Well, normally it levitates but I'm a little puzzled today and accidantly turned it up side down..."

To the guy who wants the cutted lady: "I don't do that anymore. I once cutted my wife in half. Now she wants to divorce. She moved away and now half of her lives in Dallas and the other half in Vegas..." or "I really wanted to do that tonight and I came up with the idea, why not sawing a man in half? We gonna save you for the encore. Then we goona do it lenghtwise, so you got more out of it..."
If you were half as good as you think you are, you would be double as good as you think you are...
