I read this article and a lot more. http://www.leirpoll.com/martialart.htm Long story short I did some thinking. I think a commical act would be to fool your adience by doing effects in ways that they think they would know. Use magnets and string or mirrors and trap doors. Then turn it into a sucker effect just when they think they know what you or doing hit them hard. This would not involve exposure of existing effects but knew ones. Come up with new magnet, string and mirror effects.

For starters I would say move a object with string and or magnet. Repeat getting them used to it untill whatever it is does something beyond what you had been doing. Nothing I am serious about just a fun idea that someone may work into a wonder. Any thoughts?

I don't know about a whole act based around this premise, but an idea comes to mind. Try a levitation of a ball or something using very visible strings, then when the audience is convinced this is a joke, take out a pair of scissors and cut the strings while the object continues to float.

I heard from a friend that anecdotal evidence is actually quite reliable.

Ah perfect thanks I will half to do that at work today. Let you know how it goes. I got bright nylon pink string. I will say though that mind just get them thinking of the method rather than take their minds off it. I could try that and thin fishing line that will look like I am trying to hide it. I wait till they point it out.
