So here's something I found really strange.

Yesterday after performing my 3 shows at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA
I had a young boy come up to me afterwards and ask me if any of the volunteers
in my show were STOOGES!

I do not use them, but how did this little 8 or 9 year old boy know of stooges???

I found this to be a very odd question!

My guess is, he was watching video on You Tube...or he has read a magic book.

What tricks did you perform that could have gave him the idea?

I would have probably did a simple pick a card trick on him and told him what his card was (a force). Next, I would have asked him "Are you my stooge?"

He has probably heard about stooges and wanted to make contact in a way that let you know he was an "insider".

It sounds a lot like a Magic hobbiest adult making contact with their best guess. He is just young for it.

I'm not really sure why he would have asked that question, but by some chance were any of your volunteers named Curley, Larry or Moe???

I wonder if there wasn't a magician mother or father that put him up to asking the question, maybe to mess with you lol.

This was also at the Castle for a magic audience.

I performed a cut & restored rope routine, and the Terry Lunceford's "Viper 2 Snake Basket".

Nothing earth shattering that would require a stooge of ANY kind!

Darn Robin, you stole my line! Smile

But to answer your question, the internet is all-knowing and all-speculating depending on which total online stranger you trust for your information. You can find 9 year old kids teaching tricks on Youtube or theorizing how they're done with misinformation.

The boy has seen a Criss Angel TV show, and he is smart enough to know that Criss is a fake magician.
