Default Make them love you...or hate you...or both.

Itís not so much what you perform but how you perform it. A friend of mine (Marcus Wilson, funny man who does tricks) is fond of saying ďjust make it entertaining.Ē It doesnít matter how much skill you have if you donít have pizzazz. Make it funny, especially in the dead time between tricks. Create suspense. Something mildly disgusting that wonít make them vomit but will make them cringe, or add some death deifying tricks (perceived danger is just as good as real danger) to hold the audiences attention and get their hearts pounding. Then make it funny again to release the tension. Whatever you do, do it well.
