I took out some of the comedy and replaced it with blue cheese. Makes a better salad that way.

I didn't realize that I had answered this a long time ago (scroll back).
Now I realize that I don't analyze or think out stuff. I just happen to be a kind of funny presenter. Light touch, with incongruous situations making things funny.
I do not like story type chat and prefer short witty lines.

Anyway, as far as comedy magic is concerned, the key to comedy magic is that the magic must not get in the way of the comedy and the comedy must not get in the way of the magic. There needs to be synergy when the two are combined. In other words, the magic must be good, and the comedy must be good, so that when they are combined the total effect of the routine is greater than the sum of the parts.

Every "name" comedy magician I have mentioned this to has agreed with me on this.


I agree 100% with what Bill has said, matter of fact I agree so much I said it on page one of this topic in my first post!. It not easy but it should be a goal of every comedy magician.

I try to make sure the comedy does not out do the magic and the magic does not outdo the comedy. It is my constant goal for my shows. Sometimes it seems the comedy does out do the magic in witch case I just flow with it.


Well said Bill and know I do agree fully with ya on this!!
