Gonna be like Morgan freeman in the prestige and dedicate his life to exposing magicians


Joshie8888

Although The Prestige is one of the best films on magicians, the film you're thinking of with Morgan Freeman is Now You See Me :)


-KtK-

My favorate part is that evil laugh from the dude sitting behind.


Whodunit-

When I saw him evilly cackling over his shoulder like a devil I lost my shit. I knew that would be me too to be honest.


PoorlyLitKiwi2

Same haha that was honestly hilarious. That magician needs to be a stand-up comic instead, because he could really shut down some hecklers with comebacks like those Best not to use them on small children probably though lol


sciteacheruk

Legend has it, he might already be a comedian

The magician was the kid's dad all along!

MY GOD, WHAT A TWIST!


ktaylorhite

We magicians do not take criticism from children too easily.


Suggett123

I can't stand when people send their kid to say some smart-mouthed remark. I never thought it was cute


Girthquake23

Closest I will ever get to being a magician is doing card tricks at birthday parties where I used to work. I was the person who helped with everything related to the party (Food, plates & utensils, and everything laser tag related). There was a checklist given to the parent at the end and the card trick was on that check list. It was crappy card tricks and I’d get in trouble for not doing it even tho the kid never cared. I did parties for at least two years and at most 2 kids cared. The others just wanted to go to the arcade or something else. (My trick would involve putting a card in an envelope and put it somewhere in the room. Force them to pull the same card from a different deck, make a wrong “is this your card?” Then go “hmm something went wrong, go grab that envelope for me and open it” and that was about it)


ichiPopo

Friend of mine used to do these card tricks and told us that most of it was sleight of hand or numbers (I can't recall what the exact term he said but it had something to do with math) and that it was a cool and safe party trick if you could do it consistently since even if someone knew how it worked it would still be pretty interesting.


Suggett123

I learned how to do a force while watching Penn and Teller on PBS. After the disappointed act you'd push play on your VCR and Penn would appear to be doing a newscast and he'd say "This just handed to me... Is this your card?" It was priceless. I wish I could dig it up


Suggett123

I'm such a goof. Watch from 17:00 https://youtu.be/HdOjxv9VSEQ

That's what Mark Zuckerberg would look like if he was a human


Coreyjennings

He's absolutely fantastic and a great guy. I used to live next door to him in London and he gave me free tickets to his show for my birthday. Which was brilliant by the way. He blends northern football comedy with high brow choir comedy to make a truly unique show


eddthedead

I like this guy. You can tell by the joke that he’s actually pretty funny, but once he saw the little kids face letting him know that he wasn’t having a good time, he was all concerned. What’s his name? I’d love to look him up. I’m a big fan of comedy.


pogcat_

He's Jack Black I think

The magician is actually a comedian called Lloyd Griffiths and he is hilarious

His Every Pl Fan Reaction videos were always good


LehmannDaHero

I've met him when he was filming something for SoccerAm and he was the only one out of the whole group that didn't seem like a prick. He was really gracious and asked for my name when I told him that I had been a fan of his for a while. Great bloke!


IntelligentRip3829

He's from my home town of Grimsby. Went to the town's only private school and was a chorister. The whole northern ladishness schtik is put on. Edit typo


WonderfulCattle6234

Anyone know the backstory on the kid though?

Could be a neat little thing called the "Frequency Illusion". It's a fun read if you're interested.

I dream to be a psychiatrist in order to help people recover from deep psychological trauma. This kid doesn't need a psychiatrist, he needs life support.


leprotelariat

He needs a dad


XenoMaker

My man just used a verbal nuclear warhead on a poor child who threatened to punch him


NeverWasACloudyDay

Just like that one time one of my teachers said something like "what's wrong with you, did your mother never love you?" to one of my classmates who's mother had just died of cancer.... This is almost as funny as that..


Regretless0

I feel like there's a subtle line between being funny and insensitive that your teacher faceplanted over...


NeverWasACloudyDay

In this situation timing and audience were key. There's certainly situations where this same routine would be better received :P


Mischief_Managed12

Holy shit, what did the teacher say after they realized?


NeverWasACloudyDay

He didn't know of course... and he was mortified, really did a 180 degree turn on that instantly and tried to have a heart to heart with my buddy after class. Just be careful with the jokes, the worst reaction to get from an insensitive joke isn't a rant on twitter... they're real tears from the people you hurt.


TThrowawayAccoun

Twitter rant hurts, I can delete people with tears


drj87

What is this wonderful show and where can I watch it?


BigfatDan1

It's a British football show called SoccerAM and airs every Saturday morning.


Gonkimus

If the kid can dish it then he can take it. Lesson learned.


websterella

Wasn’t this a bit the kids was asked to do for the show? I could have sworn the last time this was posted it was a scripted thing the kids was asked to say. That’s why the producers run out to him and the comedy/magician looks away. Could be wrong tho.


Master-Badger-Baiter

This is Soccer AM. Its 100% scripted. Kid sold it to be fair.


websterella

Kid is amazing! He fooled most of Reddit.

Did the magician know he was talking to a dadless kid/orphan kid?
