CAN YOU MAKE MY WIFE DISAPPEAR?

You've heard it before. Hell, you've probably heard it twice, today! I promise you'll hear it again, especially if you're going to perform this holiday season.

Question: What do you personally say in response to something like this?

If you asked me what I would do in that situation...I'd use the Alain Nu line.

During a short interview with the television mentalist extraordinaire, Alain Nu offers up a fantastically classy reply for the cliche statement. His answer is simple and direct.

Alain Nu simply explains to the husband, "I need all the audience I can get."

This statement is sincere, heart-felt, and keeps both the wife and semi-obnoxious husband out of conflict during your show. It's pure class, and I've been using it since Alain said it. If given the opportunity, I suggest you use it too.

Good luck with your performances this holiday season.

Enjoy, and speak with all of you soon.

Cheers,
Lee Asher

I usually go with the "its magic not miracles" line then turn to the wife and say "but i'll work on getting him to disappear."

I'm a demonstrator at Toys r us in times square and I get that question A LOT!

Because of my performance style, when asked that question, I usually respond: "Well, last time I did THAT, I got 20." Then I pause for a second and say, "No sir, not 20 dollars, 20 years!" That usually gets a pretty good laugh and im not usually asked that again. lol

funny that you use that....and its really smart and safe....i was once doing a dissapearing/reapperance act, on stage and this lady saw me on T.V. and asked me could i make myself appear in front of her on one of my e-mails.....she also sent a pic of herself...quite revealing i may add.....i couldn't do anything but laugh....it was really flattering and crazy at the same time....

I always found that comment very distasteful, especially when the wife is present. The joke is at her expense, so depending on the group I have used all of these lines.

"Keep talking like that, and she will disappear on her own"

"Earlier, she asked me to do the same to you...and she offered $, your $...so, what are you offering?"

"Are you that annoying that she needs a seperate vacation?"

I think all these lines slap the hand of the gentlemen in a playful way. However, Alain's line handles it in a very non-confrontational way that is sincere. Thanks for sharing Lee.
