I think that sometimes just acting like you just thought of a joke/line or at least delivering it like you have seems to add a freshness that keeps the performance from sounding robotic.



I usually do this also but am trying to get better at public speaking now that speaking gigs are on the horizon. I often play a character during my mentalism shows that may not work as well in the corporate speaking world.

The way I've found is to have a bunch of line that I can use, and then use whichever one feels right.

Some magicians might call that, a JAZZ PRESENTATION. --from the concept of "jazz" in music. It's a good way to "localize" your presentation, for a "special" group.

Also work your routine/material several times on friends you trust. Get's your chops down as well as honest feedback.

The way I work is by memorizing some key lines that keep me in track and between them I say something that feels right, and by this way of working every perfomance is different.

Just my 2 cents,
Sorry if I made any spelling mistake,
