Guidelines for a Good Magician to follow
PRACTICE: This is the key word before you go in front of an audience and go do a magic trick before you try to impress them. Unless and you always have this choice but it is not recommended to do it but just go ahead, perform the trick and look like a perfect fool because everyone guessed how your number is being done. But you can always redeem yourself and go for something that you know how to do.
SECRETS: Never, ever tell the audience how you just did your trick even if they beg you to do so. When you do magic, all the fun you get is from the surprise you get from your audience. Donít ruin it.
REPEATING: is not recommended. Do not ever go for an encore presentation for your audience because if you repeat the number you just did, all the tricks you used to draw the attention away from your audience will be rendered useless and the chance you get busted are multiplied exponentially.
MIRRORS: Before you go ahead and practice in front of a real crowd do all your tricks in front of the mirror. The reason this is suggested is because you will be able to see what the audience when they look at you.
TRICKS: It will be easier for you if you decide to perform the one you like the most because it will give you an edge. Of course you cannot be perfect in every area of magic, nobody is. But as the saying goes, if at first you donít succeed, try, try again. This is even truer in magic. Here is how to do card tricks:
Before you do your act just choose in advance the three cards you want to use. The most important thing to do is not to show the way your cards are laid out. Next just put the three cards you chose and all you need to do is lay the cards on top of the pack.
Make the trick even more special by saying that there is a chance that you havenít done the trick correctly and that there is a very good chance that it will flop. You realise of course that your fans will be delighted when it works. They also donít have to know that you practiced this trick many times.
Here is another very interesting trick, finger reading. The secret is the following: You need three people from the audience. Once you have chosen them, ask them to write their names on a piece of paper. Your best option for this particular trick is two select two men and one woman. Next thing is to cut the paper with the names on it and put them in a box designed for this trick. Now the amazing part of the act will be when you choose the paper with the female name on it all of this while you cannot see. All you have to do is to touch the paper for the rough edges. This will wow your crowd.
