If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Unless you're doing free fall parachuting in which case you might want to try very hard the first time.

Okay,
Some of you think I'm a FAST magician,
and
Some of you think I'm a Slow magician.

But I know that most of you think I'm a half fast magician.

When I am doing a routine and ask a member of the audience to come up on stage. Right before they are close to me I reach out and show a chrome sink trap. I then yell: "Look out! It's a trap!"
A big hand for the magician (he says as he pulls out a large inflatable hand from behind his back).

Brian what does this kitchen trap look like. Is there a pipe connected to it? You should do a book on comedy props.

Invert the two set-up phrases, dump the "and" and the "I know that" and add the word "probably":

It's funnier.

That portion of the lesson is free; if you don't understand WHY it's funnier, the rest of the lesson can be had for a small fee.

I like to do a cigarette sniff or make as if I am sniffing a coin up my nose and then sneeze it out. Then I say, "I would like to tell you that that was a trick, but it's snot."

You pull out a jumbo playing card (stuck to the back of the card is a mouthorgan)
You put it to your mouth and start playing it. After playing a little tune you ask the crowd what it is. You then say "it is a playing card". Ha Ha Ha!

Harry I like it, but how could one rig up the mouth organ/harmonica to the back of a playing card. Why not have the back of the card facing the audience, so it is like a Guessing Game.

Yes it is bad (meaning a gag or groaner for the mouth organ), but it is a clean joke, so it can be done for kids and it also can be made into a adult version.

Don,
It is available in any hardware store and looks like an "S" although also available in the shape of a "P" too. I put an attachment with a diagram of it on this post.

As far as trap doors go I always invite the first person on stage to stand on the "trap door" so everyone can see them better.

Another idea:
Place 2 quarters on your head (stick to forehead) and ask the audience if they know what they are? Answer: Headquarters!

Enjoy,
- Brian Nadworny

Brian I thought you Meant the Traps that go in the top part of the sink. have you ever asked the spectator to stand under the sand bag.

Hey The Donster you put the double sided tape on the side of the Harmonica!!
Think about it! You stick the Harmonica on the long edge of the back of the card so when you stick the card in your mouth you also stick the Harmonica in too!
Then you blow, not suck! You always keep the Harmonica hidden!
Believe me you always get a good groan!

Just make sure no spectators have any weapons, heavy equipment, fresh produce or the like on them or you will be in big trouble.

Harry I have thought about it. I was figuring on putting the tape on the top of the harmonica, but then you'll have to blow it side ways.

Here's another one!
You get a babies dummy and you stick it to the middle of a round food tray.
In your show sometime you ask the audience what this is. They will say a babies dummy. But you then stick the dummy in your mouth with the back of the tray covering your face. Then you say, "No it's a dummy for a ugly baby".

Love to get some more gags!

Why put yourself down in front of your audience?
