Magic is a great way to ensure you get a standing ovation. With most magic, I learned this from a fantastic book called Magic The Complete Course by Joshua Jay (though he says to use a cup of water, I prefer just running to a vending machine and grabbing a soda). This is a fun way to ensure your audience gives you that standing ovation you deserve. You don't have to be a well-seasoned magician, or a professional public speaker to learn this routine. You can experiment with a few items instead of the coke bottle such as flower vases, latex production bottles, appearing bouquets, anything you can think of!
