” Do That Once more.”… hmmm?
Magicians get collectively to share and hopefully be taught from one another. We talk about the whole lot about magic. I bear in mind a number of instances when associates have been speaking about what to do when a spectator asks, “do this once more.”
The consensus was this was a praise. In case you are a working magician, you understand it is a downside. In lots of tips, a repeat is normally a “lesson.”
A repeat efficiency is probably going to provide away the key, and with out the key, we’ve got no magic. The most typical answer to this request is to repeat the trick with a unique methodology.
Consider the “Bold Card.” Its energy lies in its repetition, and if the strategies regularly cancel out any assumed options your viewers might think about, the end result might be an awfully sturdy magic impact.

However I’m not speaking about any such repetition. Let’s say the ending of the trick includes discovering a signed card in your pockets. The cardboard within the pockets is the “punchline.” You’ll be able to’t repeat this trick. (To the identical viewers.) Consider the spectator who brings you to his associates and says, “Do the trick the place the cardboard leads to your pockets!” You see, the issue.
Maybe you understand a technique to have a card find yourself in a spectator’s pockets. (A barely totally different trick, however a very good comply with up, and an entire shock.)
When potential, I like to observe different magicians carry out. Just lately, observing a magician carry out a trick, the spectator stated these phrases, “Try this once more.” I heard a tone in her voice, the pitch rising, her eyes shifting to the facet, trying up. Suggesting she was assessing what she noticed, and concluding in her thoughts, “I believe I understand how that was finished. When you, do it once more, I can determine it out.”
There may be a lot going incorrect right here, I don’t know the place to start.
However, let’s reduce to the chase. She didn’t await the magician to reply her request. She ended with, “Oh, by no means thoughts.” (Ouch!)
