I transform a regular size key into a 10 inch key that's put in their hands.
"Want to see my key to success? I have a motto... Think Big"

It's very visual and jump starts the set in seconds.

Sponge ball from no where, then I lead in to a sponge routine. The idea is from Daryl's Essential's DVD

I do sponge balls but not as an opener. When I first approach a group to perform, I need to size them up first and see how they interact with me. I do not want to impose on them by asking them to hold anything or be that physically interactive with them. When I do the nudist deck I do not need their help so they can just enjoy the magic and my interaction with them without having to do anything..just my opinion.

I always start my opener with a ring routine.

I try to avoid opening with card effects if at all possible. I usually do stuff with a finger ring and lead into ninja plus with it. Or do a "something with nothing" sort of presentation and produce a coin(s) and go into it from there. If possible I avoid opening with "I am a magician, can you please pick a card?"

I sometimes open with a transposition in the spectators hands. I ask them what their lucky number is, then use that number card for the transpo. It's not "pick a card," it's easy to follow, and it immediately engages cuz I'm asking them for something "personal" (I add quotes around personal because 9 times out of 10 they say their lucky number is seven.)

If you want a card trick that is not "pick a card" you cant beat the card barf! Smile

My current openers
-Bag4Life > One Coin Flurry (with a jumbo production)
-Crazy Mans Handcuffs
-Sponge Bunnies (only if its a group of girls and I'm short on time)

As more people become aware of you you can then pretty much open with anything. I start the night with those openers but soon just start opening with card tricks and jazzing my set

I tell the audience we are going to start with something that's easy to follow. A Pen. I tell them all they have to do is keep their eyes on the tip, as the pen goes round and round eventually it becomes.......POINTLESS...... Hence- Pointless by Gregory Wilson...I have found to be a very fun and entertaining opener.
