I had shown a guy the 'pen thru the dollar' trick last week, well today he saw me again and insisted I do the trick again for him, well I do tend to carry magic with me, but the pen was at home. I told him that it wasnt a magic moment and I couldn't perform the trick. He insisted I do the 'pen thru the dollar' trick, once again I said "How about something else?" " No!" he said and proceeded to hand me a $20 dollar bill. Well, with his friends looking intently, I grabbed a pen out of my pocket and went throught the motions. I held up the pen with the dollar pierced and he said to his friends "See! I told you he could do it".
After literally pulling the pen out of the 20 I handed it back to him hole and all.
He looked at me and said, "There's a hole in my twenty!". You should have seen the look on his face. I replied "I told you it wasnt a magic moment.... I think with the look on your face it's a Kodak moment."

Nobody got hurt in this incident, just a big laugh at his insistant stupidity.


wow! Most people I know would have gotten seriously annoyed at getting a $20 bill ripped on them. So much so that the only response would probably have been physical in nature! You got lucky!

Forgot who said this line , so I cant really give credit to whom came up with it


You know , I actually wanted to study and become a doctor or a lawyer , but my mother forced me to become a comedy magician , otherwise she would have kicked me out of the house

I once performed a routine where a predicted celebrity photo is retrieved from an envelope.

I made up the trick for the client who said that her son really liked a particular sports team (a sports team I knew nothing about).

When I ended the routine pulled out the photo of the prediction and it was the wrong one.

But I didn't know it was wrong because I did not recognize the player.

The kids all yelled out "That's Jarred Roughead"

So I immediately yelled out, "WELL! IT'S PRETTY CLOSE!"

The parents laughed and I just went on to another routine.

While performing the Zombie for a bunch of cops, at a holiday party, the ball flew off - and landed against the wall.

I looked at them and announced "Like nothing ever goes wrong where you work!"

Brought the house down... then we had to call the fire department to rescue us because the police union does not allow them to work in rubble.

My perfect line is not a line but a trick...I use a Lota bowl in my show, and whenever I can't do a trick but the child can do it (as planned), I say, "I know why that happened...I forgot to pour the water!"

On rare occasions when a trick REALLY messes up, I just jump right to that.

Always have a children's How to Do Magic book handy to refer to when screwing up.

I have a friend who when something goes wrong jumps off the stage, run to an empty seat, sits down, and screams "YOU SUCK" at the top of his lungs. Always gets a great reaction.

Is this a running gag? How many times does he screw up per performance.

Guys I perform some of the rope moves from Richard Sanders Fiber Optics and it has happened that the small piece of rope sometimes falls off...when doing the sliding down the rope phase...can any of you think of a clever line for this situation? maybe "tie" in a line with the word "end(s)" in it or even just something different yet that justifies the reason for saying it during a rope trick? thanks?
