Nor about what tricks we could or couldn't do naked. I thought the question, if you could actually do our show naked, would "you be a good enough showman to make people forget that you are naked?" Tarbell said that we should be good enough speakers that we could entertain people without doing magic, just by talking. And that is important. A lot of what magicians say (well, not me, but others) detracts from their performances, either because it isn't very well written (if it's written at all) or not very well delivered. Another question would be, is your magic good enough that you could entertain without talking? I think the intend here is similar. Just how strong is your show (magic, talking, music, etc. - the whole ball of wax)? Is the show so good that people would get so involved in your tricks, your stories, your patter, the background music, whatever else you do, that they would actually forget that you were naked? And I don't think while answering this question that we should be worrying about whether we could actually do our shows naked. For many (I suspect most) of us the answer would be "no." But assume for the moment that you can do "real" magic. For example, if you normally vanish a handkerchief by pushing it into your fist, assume that you could do the same thing while naked.
