Hello fellow members,


I am developing a short stage routine, and since it takes place in about a month I am incorporating effects I already know, but am looking for a fresh spin presentation wise.


I thought it would be interesting to look at MAGIC as an acronym. So far Misdirection and Audience Participation does the job of setting the stage for a quick opener and getting an audience member on stage. Those account for the "M" and the "A."


I am preserving "C" for "Closer" to end with something very strong.

I am currently stuck with the "G" and the "I" words. Any help on thinking of relevant words for these would be appreciated!!!
People have been calling me "Yu" lately. I don't know, must be Chinese.

I = interactive; ingenious; interesting; in-the-hands; inside; in-colour; irrasicble; impish; ink blot
G = guided; great; grasp; gone; grimoire; grace; guts; glide; glammar; ghoulish

Any more info?

Thank you for the suggestions.

It's a college audience, and since I can really only fit in 4 quick effects I am inclined to go with:

Misdirection
Audience Participation
Gravity (or the overcoming thereof)
Impossible (do my closer)
C - Confetti, a humorous closing after the final applause dies down.

For G you could use the word Gaff and with many false explanation routines around ( Sucker Egg to Silk) you could try and teach a member a trick, or G could stand for Glimpse which could lead into a remote viewing demo, future projection or prediction.

From the book "Phinominal Propengics"

has more to do with how to apply what you learn from pretending to do magic to your real life


M = Mission
A = Accountability
G = Good Will
I = Integrity
C = Commitment

(K) (for those who wish it ) = Knowledge
"the more one pretends at magic, the more awe and wonder will be found in real life." Arnold Furst
