Kind of odd that most magicians fail when they try to reproduce the features that Uri Geller does. They use the exact same method to bend the spoon, even the same words and all of that, but still they fall flat. Why? Because Uri Geller is not looked at as a magician.
And copying someones act is never good.
When you know how certain things are achieved in magic you will realize that during the performance Criss Angel does little work. Which naturally creates the question is he even able to do the most basic stuff, like a coin vanish or a pass. (A pass is a card move that is kind of hard to do)
My second storyline is starting right here. Chrisss calls me to help him on his Show. This is a common practice with bigger magic shows. David Copperfield has his Chris Kenner and Criss Angel has Johnny Thompson. Chrisss got me... hehe
In magic only the effect matters to the audience. Since they don't know anything about methods that is all they can care for. This is quite a dilemma, because often the methods to achieve those effects are more interesting than the effect itself. I call those bad magic tricks.
I have seen this. Magicians who instead of becoming nervous before the show seem to become extremely focused. But in reality they are not even listening. In my personal case it is actually a bit different. I get tired. Really tired. And only getting on stage actually gets rid of this.
