I always had fun with the 'Wedgy' reference when doing a large full body puppet. Of course I am the obvious cause of that wedgy and 'he' just seemed to find numerous places to drop it in...especially when discussing the audience.

Well...I laughed.

If the time is right and it's an adult crowd I like the Lotta Flask.

I use dipy duck. Everytime I pick it up I say, the duck will now get your card. I put it down and say have you seen this one, and I divert the trick until near the end, depending on what audience.

I sometimes say the reason I couldn't find the card was because I forgot how to do the trick. Then the duck finds the card or sometimes I pretend the duck told me he knows what card it is. I say go get it and he comes up with it so I ask him how he did and he wispers into my ear, 'Oh that's who you did it,' and he keeps on bringing up the same cards from a one way force deck.

Works for me!

I use hair or lack of hair as call backs. This runs through the magic as well as the Vent bits.

Example:

Nigel: I really liked the part where you made it disappear

Harris: What's that?

Nigel: Your Hair

H: NO MORE HAIR JOKES

N. NO MORE HAIR

After going over some magic words, and more hair references, I ask Nigel if he would like to hear another magic word.

N. OK

H. Hereditary (sic)

The old Dick Van Dyke shows are full of hair jokes. From Buddy to Mel.

Enjoy the laughter

Very funny, I think comedy works better if you can make fun of yourself as well.

One of the funniest call backs and running gags I saw recently was in Mac Kings show where he calls back to his pet earth worm and the Fig Newton.
I don't want to ruin it ... so If you haven't seen his Vegas show - make an effort to do so. It is brilliant.
