I saw this last night and I have to say I was kind of bummed. I thought it made magicians look like idiots.
Most people have a very bad impression of magicians. Probably because there are so many bad magicians out there.

We just have to accept our lot... we're not cool, most people think it's just tricks that anybody can do. They think we are geeks maybe one step up from a Star Trek Convention.

I was listening to a local radio guy who is friends with Glen Beck and he said that they were sitting around after dinner one night having a "dork off". They were each telling stories about dorky things they did. In the end Glen Beck said "I have you beat Dave I was a MAGICIAN!!!"

Ouch!! That Hurt.
Regards,
Steve

Yes I agree my wife and I were a bit offended by the parody. On the other hand it is a good lesson to magicians, they were one trick ponies doing just one thing over and over again and in the end they ended up out of work. I have seen magicians myself who are like that they get a hold of one tick that they do over and over and over and perform it even if it is not appropriate for that venue. Myself I thought it was dumb and not at all funny, that's why I opened it up here for you guys to talk about it.

Another person posted this in another section of the Café, as if this place does not have enough repeat topics gosh.

See if that works for you James.

Once again I am odd man out, I found it amusing, not great but amusing. Then again I was also the one making jokes hours after my heart bypass surgery.

I found it more ridiculous than anything, and not at all funny. But then, most of SNL strikes me this way.

I don't care if people make fun of anything I enjoy, like magicians, as long as it's witty. You can find many examples right here on the Café of people poking fun at themselves.

The problem with that clip, and that show, is it isn't even a little funny, it's moronic. It says more about themselves than it does about Magicians. They have writers? Professionals? I'd bet that's a hard job coming up with tons of material on the spot, but they can't even come up with any. If that show didn't have the reputation of being funny it wouldn't be on the idiot box. They should be ashamed of themselves.
