Is that a priest gazing lovingly at a small banana?
Because that looks a lot like a priest gazing lovingly at a small banana.
I was about four inches from death, simply because I’m a fucking idiot.
The incident was about 15 years ago, but this was the first time I’ve told this story.
This is an excerpt from when I was on the “Blind Not Stupid” podcast; you can hear the full episode at https://maniacofmagic.com/2017/02/09/who-killed-houdini-i-was-on-the-conspiracy-theory-podcast-blind-not-stupid/
Oh… and don’t try this at home.
I did a show for a private party last weekend. It was an adult-only gathering of friends, just for fun.
Earlier in the day, they had a “scavenger hunt” where people had to find random stuff to bring back to the party, and one of the treasures was a bowl of goldfish.
Oh, and one of the items was a carved wooden dildo.
But I digress.
So, the goldfish bowl was sitting in the back of the room during the evening, and… one by one… they began to disappear.
And by disappear, I mean people were EATING them.
Saw a couple of the disappearances.
One dude – instead of simply swallowing the goldfish, in the normal fashion (is that normal??) – popped the damn fish in his mouth and chewed it up.
He was chewing with his mouth open (bad manners, right?!), and while he chomped, the head of said goldfish spat out of his mouth and onto the floor.
But do you think he picked it back up and finished his meal? Hell, no! That thing was on the floor, man! Gross!
But at least he picked it up and put it back in the bowl, so nobody would step on it. That’s straight-up gentlemanly.
This was the bowl at the end of the night:
Sometimes my audiences scare me.
But, ya know what? Wouldn’t trade them for a “normal” magician’s audience. Not in a million years.
Give me goldfish-eating alcoholics ANY day of the week over a bunch of hyperactive kids and disinterested parents.
I love my job.
It’s a thing I wrote for Jer-Dog’s “The Bar Comic” publication. The column is called “Bar Trickery” and is going to be all about tricks, bets, scams, and stunts that YOU can use when you’re out and about to win a free drink and/or a semi-honest dollar or two. Fun stuff.
This first one has actually been around forever, but it is “on the radar” of surprisingly few civilians (in other words – you’ll get away with it).
Thought I’d share it with you… Click the image to enlarge:
More to come in the future, probably.
If you enjoyed that, here is a video teaching another sneaky way to win free drinks – https://maniacofmagic.com/beer/ – it’s a bit more complicated, but looks awesome.
Until next time…
