Magic should be fun but should also be entertaining..

Magic will live and breathe! It will have form and purpose and it will grow!
The fun part is watching it live...and grow...and thrive!
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

I agree that magic 'should be fun.' However, Magic can be used to teach, to inspire, to to whatever we gear it towards. So I think that magic can be fun and more emotional depending on how we present it.

Sure. Magic can and should be many things, INCLUDING fun. The main point: don't lose the MAGIC of the magic. Smile

It's magic, there are no should(s) or oughts.
If you mean fun for the magi, then I agree.

Fun is contageous. You are having fun, enjoying the moment, riding the wave. They can't help but follow suit. It's like an adventure. Carpe diem.

I agree with Patrick. If you are having fun - the audience will have fun as well.

The fun part for us is adopting the work to the kajillions of ways people like to have fun.

These are not mutually exclusive things. A good teacher can make learning fun. A good motivational speaker is fun to watch and learn from. And both have fun seeing their work be successful.

The moment we notice the effect of magic is awfully close to the experience we call "fun". Sure, why not equate them in a positive sense.

From a purely commercial basis, if the audience has fun watching you do magic, and they perceive that you are having fun when you are doing it, then they are much more likely to want to see it again.

What is Fun?

A lot of people have fun by going to see a horror movie together. I think together might be the key word there.

There is no doubt that horror movies are fun to watch just as roller coasters are fun to ride. Some people enjoy them more than others. If they weren't fun, people wouldn't watch them.

Part of the fun is due to the fact that no matter how much gore and grisliness we see, we know that it is only a movie and that we will come out alive.

As pointed out by George Ledo, myself and others, comic relief is a major factor in almost any horror movie. It is used to catch us off guard. In a way, it can be part of the "misdirection" of horror.

The fun element may be a result of a higher concentration of adrenalin and other similar chemical agents in the bloodstream when a person is frightened.
