Yesterday while doing my gig on the waterfront, I started a nice little build and then the potential trouble audience from hell started to build... there was 2 private girls school soccer teams from out of town without a chaperone in sight.

Yep 30 private prep school princesses all front row and centre. The grabbers were out in full force and it was getting to be a real struggle. Some of the other Spoecs were starting to lose their sense of humour with these little darlings and their antics when I looked over at one of the adults and said...

"Now I know why some species eat their Young...". The Adults were roaring with laughter and the comment from the Princess gallery was...."You are being rude."
My next answer in a flash was "And you were being....?"

They got the point and stepped back in line. It did feel good to rein them in very quickly and efficiently. They can get real nasty in groups...

I have had a teacher tell me that after one of his classes a while back. I am glad you were able to get it under control. Some people just don't have respect when they are from another place.

Good deal, glad you were able to defuse the situation as quick as you did.

I'm really curious as to why girl's soccer or softball teams turn into harpies the moment they find street performers. It seems to be a recurring effect.
Existence exists...let's build something beautiful off of that.

The same reason a group of boys "know how it is done". The ego and rudeness of youth.

Ahh to be young and smart again....

I was once the recipient of a lecture on proper magic terminology given by an 11th grade bi..er ah, girl during a show at a nearby high school. I was not in a very good mood at the time, because I had just torn a ligament in one of my feet, and I wasn't about to put up with her BS. When she finished, I asked her if she actually did any magic. She replied that she didn't.

So I said, "Why don't you let me get on with my show. I have 30 minutes to make an ass out of myself. You have your entire life. Plus, you have a head start."

The principal was watching the show. He approached me after the show was over. I was expecting him to withhold my check and tell me not to ever darken his door again.

He said, "Sometimes I wish I could say things like that to those smart-assed girls."

Bill,
I am roflmao this morning...

What a great line, and with your kind permission I thnk I may have to add that to my repetoire of lines for just those kind of occasions.

I recently added this line.. and I do not know who to credit...

When someone hollers out ..."Magic sucks"

You yell back..."So does being an A-hole, but you you already know that"

Sound like you were being rude.Maybe?
It has happen to me.
I think back how can I make this better.
It looks like they didn't like you.
You have to make your audence fall in love with you.
Also maybe your magic wasn't strong enough.
Heckler lines sometimes make you look like a jerk
To win them you have to be the nice guy.
I'm trying to help you out.
Those girls are your real teachers because everyone you meet is a teacher.
Best of Luck

Andrew, if each and every show you do gets a " You suck" then you are right, some definite introspection is required. But I am taking about those occurences when some self centered *** decides they want to upstage and be a real pain...

Drastic times require drastic measures.

Unfortunately, there are those sick unfortunates who like to ruin the show for others. Imagine what a dork I would be if I went to a fellow magi's show and then started blabbing effects and methods before they could get to the end of the trick. I would deserve everything they dished my way and more.

Some specs just don't get that they are not the show and the nice people are here to enjoy the show.
