Questions I Am Asked At Every Gig

  1. Can you make my wife disappear?

Somebody asks me this at just about every event I do. If the wife is not present, I usually reply, “Well, I would like to help but she has already paid me to make you disappear.” If his wife is there I say, “I’m not sure. Let me try first on your daughter here.”

  1. Can you predict the winning lottery numbers?

I rapidly reel off a series of numbers (far too quick for anyone to remember) and add, “I don’t know which lottery they will be in but I am certain that sooner or later they will come up.”

  1. How long have you been a magician?

“I only started last Wednesday”. I then give them a serious answer to the question.

  1. Are you a member of The Magic Circle?

I explain I am and ask if they would like to see the trick I performed for the membership committee.

  1. Can you turn this (displaying a £5 note or a party invitation etc.) into a £20?

“If I could, would I be here on a Saturday night doing card tricks?!”

  1. How did you do that?

“Very well, since you’re asking.” I then thank them for the compliment.

  1. Why aren’t you on the telly?

“I have been, actually. Do you follow Crimewatch UK?”

  1. Can you tell me how you did that?

“Sorry, I’d be thrown out of the Magic Circle. By the way, would you like to see the trick I performed for the audition committee?

  1. Can you do stuff like Derren Brown?

Yes, whenever I am on TV.

  1. I’ve seen you perform before.

“Oh dear! I hope you don’t want your money back.” 

Actually, although I offer a money back guarnatee, nobody has ever demanded it. In fact, they are more than happy to provide video recommendations like these.
