"The Forks"

I like to compare what I do to other fields of entertainment, music, for instance. Sometimes I'll make a joke to my audience that they should "sing along if they know the words" before asking them to pick a card. It's a bit easier to be a fan of a musician. To start with, the things they perform have titles. A lot of what I do has a title too, it's just that people wouldn't be aware of it. Instead, it's up to my audience to make up the names of effects when they want to see me repeat something. I've heard "do the bouncy trick", "do that thing you did with the queens", but, most often I hear "do the forks."
