Since we know that one of the key components in busking is noise. Its amazing what a little screaming and clapping can do to your audience size, and I think using ambitous card routine as an opener with this patter could help a whole lot.

Now, I need help from one person in the audience. . Now will you please select a card? Very good. Now since I am acussed of having more than one card in the deck, could you please sign your card? Thank you. We will put the card back in the deck. Oh no, you picked the ______. That is probably the shiest card in the deck. I was going to make it jump to the top, but it is going to be so hard. Ah! I know, how about we chear for it? It can’t be just applause, it has to be whistling, screaming and clapping. Now, maybe if we clap hard enough, he just might come to the top.
So lets go ahead and try. On the count of three. 1 2 3! Oh come on is that the best you can do? Look he didn’t even come to the top. Come on we have to get louder! Come on, 1 2.... 3! ( Pause a little to have maybe one or 2 people scream and you get a laugh) Great, see he did come back to the top. Lets try that again. This time we will cut the deck and put it back in the middle. Ok, lets do it again.... Come on 123! YA, great! Since we know that he can rise to the top face down, lets try to put him face up.... Ok? So come on, we need to scream, we need to hollar, we need to blow this place down, 1 2 3!!! And he did, he must not be so shy now.

I admit that this is really dry, and it really needs some humor, but I am terrible at writing down humor, so any help with little one liners would be apreciated. Good Idea?

Very good idea, you could use the effect raise rise and have the crowd see the card moving to the top... That way they see that they have to yell and clap louder to get it to go all the way to the top!

Keep up the good work.

Might work for children, but adults may feel insulted cheering for a card.
