How to Recover from a Flubbed Magic Trick
Part of the Magic For Dummies Cheat Sheet
Ideally, you would never make a mistake when performing a magic trick. Unfortunately, life isn't like that and circumstance and bad luck can rear their ugly heads. When a trick goes wrong, graceful performers shrug it off with humor and recover if they can. Try these lines when you mess up a magic trick:
"I forgot to compensate for the rotational effect of the Earth."
"Hmm. It worked in the magic store!"
"It's all part of the show, folks — the part that hasn’t been rehearsed."
"That's the first time that ever happened again."
"It doesn't look as bad from my side."
"The real magician will be here shortly."
"I'm curious to see how I get out of this myself!"
"Wow, it's so quiet in here, you could hear a career drop."
