…but don’t know where to start, bar bets are an excellent way of learning to perform tricks. Bar bets (or “betchas” to their friends) are simple tricks, almost always self working, that rely on a very simple secret. Quite a few are based on probability or a weird scientific fact that no-one – apart from that weird lad at school – knows about.
One of the best series of videos I’ve seen recently is by Richard Wiseman, with his “10 bets you will always win” series. Have a watch of the videos, learn a few of them and try them out on your friends. It’s a great way to start performing, as you’ll learn so much about presentation. You’ll also win a load of free drinks too. Win-win! 🙂
