It's true that the faster and flashier, the better for television, especially live! Let's talk about the effects you have performed (or would perform if you had the chance) on the tellie!

Well, the last show that I did was local cable in San Diego so that really does not count. I had 20 minutes which you would never get on a "real" TV spot.



What would I do.... hmmm.... it depends on if it were close-up or stand up. For close up probably a sponge ball routine. Right now I am having a great time with Carl Andrews routine "Ain’t no Mo" Or some sort of a transpo card routine.



For stand-up, jeez, I would need a couple of days to decide Smile

I did some ace cutting routines and revelations for the Fox television show "The PJ's". Just False shuffles and cuts. I had to follow the script of the show so I really couldn't do a trick per say but that's all I've done as far as TV goes.



Talk to you later,

I had a TV shot when the original needle thru matchbox first came out. I was on a show with several other magicians around Halloween. The host was a noted smarty-pants and interrupter. I was the only one that nailed him.



The staff came up to me after the taping and congratulated me on really getting him good. When that matchbox droped into his hand as heavy as it was his eyes nearly popped out of his head. He was mezmerized by the brass block for a good 30 seconds. That's a long time in TV time.



As long as we are talking TV, is this some kind of Teletubby? Smile

I used to perform on a local tv-show and the host asked me which trick I would do and in what order? So he noted everything on his cue card.



The real magic was on the face of the host when on air he announced, now Andre The Magician will show us a card trick...and at that moment I looked at him and said; "let me show you a small illusion using two rubber bands" (Crazyman Handcuffs).



The host was surprised, amazed and speechless. Each time he announced the next trick in the order noted on his cue card, each time I surprised him by showing him something different.



The crew enjoyed every moment of the 7-minutes allowed to me on the show and had fun from the start to the end. The host concluded my presentation by saying; "I suppose that magic has got to be a surprise, even for the host".



The people watching the show remembered the magic moment that confused the host for weeks. Everytime somebody recognized me, they would congratulate me for the way I confused that poor host. Use that approach on your next tv appearance. It’s fun for everybody on the set...even for the host!
