  1. My least favorite thing that some beginner magicians do would have to be a bad or obvious double lift. I cant be too harsh for I had a bad double lift at the beginning too, but thanks to your tutorials I have learned the "Strike" double very well. Thanks Jay.

  2. Correct me if I'm wrong, but one thing that I really feel is that when magicians emphasize something whether what they say is true or false, it may make it more suspicious. For example, In this performance you tell us you have an ordinary napkin, or paper. You can say it once or twice, but some people start emphasizing it way more, and that just makes it really suspicious. Unless its borrowed, it kind of ruins the effect in a way because your making it seem like you have somethikng up your sleeve, and it really isn't ordinary.

  3. I suppose one thing I don't like magicians doing is stock patter. "Do you want to change your mind? You're happy with the one you have?" Or sometimes worse, a blow by blow description of what the magician is doing while he/she is doing it. Creative presentation and original scripting will set us apart from the crowd. That's one thing I appreciate about Sankey Magic.

  4. Something I don't like about the way magicians perform would have to be when camera tricks and cutscenes are used, of course it can't be done live, but it takes the whole authenticity and love of magic out of it. The inspiring drive as a fellow magician is lost in trying to follow the performance because there's nothing real to rely on; there's no sleight of hand, no misdirection, no special props to try and perplex and bend your mind until you finally stumble across the tranquil epiphany that is the secret to the trick. I don't like loaded audiences either but I won't get in to that, I'll keep it short. 🙂

  5. +SankeyMagic i dont like when magicians dont have a storyline. a trick can be impressive but when you have a good storyline you can get much better reactions. P.S love the way you take simple tricks and present them a way that make the same trick much more visual

  6. It seems to have become a theme in some magicians' acts to behave in a very "blah" and uncharismatic way. I don't understand when or why that became popular, but I hate it. Engage the audience. Act like you give a damn, people!
