What would you do if you were on the Fool Us show? 

Me, I would all nervous and stressed and foul up the trick something awful.

If I could do something, I would do a three coin fingertip coins across, no gimmicks. Their father (jumbo coin) tells them to go home  and the coins are all gone, except for the jumbo.

My prediction is they wont be fooled.

How about you?

I’d get their autograph and call it a day.

I'd do a version of the which-hand it's in and a few extensions beyond that I happen to market and hardly anyone knows about.

I wouldn't go on P&T, simply because I don't perform any tricks or routines that they wouldn't know the secret(s) to.

That hasn't stopped quite a few performers from going on anyway and I don't fault them. Just saying you were on there is great press.

I wouldn't go on though. I'm not making a career out of it and more importantly, I'm not up to snuff haha.

I've been pleasantly surprised at some of the effects/principles that fooled them in the past -- things that have been in writing for years. Just a few examples off the top of my head include edge markings, double stick tape, an Apple Watch, and a version of Neither Blind Nor Silly. Dress up the presentation enough, entertain them enough, and use enough misdirection and I think anybody has a chance at it! Of course that's easier said than done in front of thousands of people...

I’m not qualified but there has been plenty that fooled me that didn’t fool them. And I don’t get the answers from their coded messages.

I didnt mean to suggest that i was anywhere good enough to be on the show. It was just kind of a whimsy thing.

I would follow the instructions of the magician that had just picked me out of the audience to help on stage.

I am not making it to the stage any other way.
