The magician magically demonstrates a story about one time when he was almost late for a performance, but magic saved him. To demonstrate, a gem stick is shown with all red gems. "All the traffic lights were red, so to save time" he says, "I said the magic word (you fill in the blank here) as I approached the traffic light and it turned green so I was able to go through without stopping." The magician now shows that one of the red gems on the stick has turned green while the others remain red. Each red gem in turn changes to green while the others remain red and the magician tells his story of magically changing the traffic lights to meet his needs!
Very nice entertainment and leaves your close-up audience thinking that you are a very special magician!
