Absolutely correct. No real effect by itself is a laugh a minute. In one performer's hands the sponge balls could be just ok. In anothers the sponge balls could be a laugh a minute marathon. It really depends so much on what you are the performer do with the props that you have. The trick is just a trick but it takes a gifted magician to be a true entertainer.

Of course you are 100% correct but let's pretend we are all created equal and with the exact same amount of talent. What would you say was one of the funniest effects you could perform? I mean Mike Bent makes me laugh just looking at his expressions when performing with kids, but what is do you all think is a funny effect just at it's core?

I'll start, Ok... you wouldn't think this funny, but everytime I perform the "Shrinking Glove" trick, the kids crack up. I'm not even being funny or trying to make them laugh, they just do. Then it gets me laughing, and then they laugh harder. It makes no sense because it really isn't that funny of an effect.

Ok, name another one???

I do not mean to be a party pooper but to me it still comes down to you the performer. A trick by itself is not essentially funny in its own rights. It is just a trick or effect and nothing more. How you do it and how you perform it even in the most subtle of ways will get and create the reactions of laughter. Take shrinking glove. To the right person it is funny as anything for the kids. Giev the exact same effect to someone else and it may get no reaction at all. Just my thoughts.

Razor blade swallowing if you make a funny face when you swalow them and pretend it hurts the kids just howl with laughter. (note in case you missed it that was said in a very sarcastic way) note 2 I am not advocating this be done by any child performer... note 3 really that was a joke.
send your report of this post to the above link (report this post) but really I was just kidding.

Blow Yur Stack when I put on a blind fold for the cup stacking part and wander around the audience placing cups in kids' shoes, on their heads, etc.

Okay, I guess you've got to be there . . .
