I love magic gone wrong...or 'performed incorrectly', ALA Tommy Cooper.

I only have a couple routines so far (not performed. Just 'on-paper' routines)

- Spinning playing card - do the routine as you normally would, until you 'see a wasp' and try to dodge and get out of its way. All the while, the playing card is flailing wildly.


- Nailed It - I would do the 'Nailed It' routine with the addition of me 'calling my insurance company' and trying to get a higher insurance rate through the entire bit. Once you get down to two bags, the insurance company denies the insurance increase. So you throw the other two bags in a garbage can.

I have done the McCombical prediction card routine for years, and it always plays well.

I think an interesting idea would be to do a mis-made fan where the fan breaks on YOU, but works when the spectator opens it! When he opens it, you get excited because you can use the fan after all, but when you take it from him, it breaks again! After the second time, you give up and let the spectator wave the fan.

No one has mentioned the two ways the Wrong Way plot is handled
1. you, the magician make mistakes
2. the volunteer makes the mistakes

I know, a lot of you are going to say how distasteful it is to make an assistant look bad -THIS COMMENT IS MEANT TO MAKE THE SUBJECT COMPLETE

  ( I foresee this subject going from 1 page to 3) Go ahead, if you think it makes you feel better..


The volunteer making the mistakes can be fantastic. This is my favorite such routine: Whit "Pop" Haydn's linking ring routine.
