If you are naturally funny, it doesn't matter what trick you use. Example: Terry Seabrooke gets tons of laughs out of Slydini's torn and restored newspaper.

You just need to be funny.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing.
In loving memory of Hughie Thomasson 1952-2007.

You brought something beautiful to this world, you touched my heart, my soul and my life. You will be greatly missed.

Until we meet again “my old friend”.

Kohl and Company is very funny. Probably the funniest magic act I have seen.

Have you considered the wonderful "Vanishing Bandana?"

You're so going to get shot for that comment.

Well, the effect has served me well, and gotten much laughter from my audiences, and is easy to do, quite visual, so I meant the comment sincerely. sorry if it offended, but I only wanted to help, and I wouldn't recommend any effect that I haven't personally used and gotten good results from.

So then, shooting me is truly unneccesary.

Daffydoug,
There is another thread going on right now in which many people are slamming the Vanishing Bandanna as canned, copycat magic. There seems to be a wide variety of opinions on this trick, and I believe that is what is being referred to here.
