The Great Mediocro
But try to understand... Try to understand... Try, try, try to understand... he's a magic man
About this creation
Come one, come all, see the Great Mediocro! One night only! Because there never seems to be any demand for him to do more than one show. In fact there are plenty of seats still available for this one...



"Thank you, thank you... Thank you ladies and gentlemen. Wow, you look like a great audience. Very well rested. Me, I just Apparated from Hogsmeade, and boy is my wand tired!... That's a Harry Potter joke, folks... Harry Potter, magic... I can slow down if you're not keeping up."





"You suck, Mediocro!"
"Thank you, thank you... ah, excellent, signs of life! For a moment I thought I'd been accidentally booked to perform at a wax museum!"
"Get to the magic tricks, you hack!"





"Excellent, that's the spirit! Always love an enthusiastic audience. All right, first let me prove to you that there's nothing up my sleeve..."







"And now I shall -- wait a moment -- my apologies ladies and gentlemen, but I simply can't work with this distraction. Could you come up here a moment, son? There appears to be something in your ear, reflecting the footlights right into my eyes -- aha!"






"Oh, come on! My uncle could do that one, and he was a raging alcoholic!"
"Really? Could he do... this? PRESTO, CHANGE-O!"







"I'm sure he could have, if he spent a few bucks at a magic shop."
"Oho, tough crowd. All right, let's skip to the big ones. As you can see there's nothing in my hat..."






"But -- HOCUS POCUS, ALAKAZAM! I pull a rabbit out of the hat!"
"What? That's clearly a rat!"







"Hey, cut me some slack, fella. Have you seen the size of Lego rabbits? They're almost as big as we are."
"Shouldn't be a problem for a real magician, if you ask me."






"But nobody asked you. Sir, with all your outbursts it's clear you are starved for attention. Perhaps you'd like to come up on stage and assist me with the grand finale -- being sawn in half?"
"Yeah, why not?"





"Um, Mediocro, don't you think you'd rather pick me to do that trick?"
"No I don't, Mary -- I mean, young lady whom I've never seen or spoken to before this moment -- I think our obnoxious friend will do just fine..."






"Comfortable, sir?"
"Not really, I --"
"Good, good! The trick is to stay calm, my friend, don't go all to pieces on me! Ha ha!"






"AAAAAAAUUUUUUGGGGHHHHHH!!! HE'S REALLY CUTTING ME! STOP HIM, HE'S A HOMICIDAL MANIAC!!! HEEEEELLLLLLP!!!"
"Nothing to fear, ladies and gentlemen, all part of the act! You see our friend is a natural! He has a true flair for the dramatic!"
"AAAAAAAAAAUUUUURRRRGGGGHHHH!!! SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME!!! I'M IN SO MUCH PAIN!!!"




"And we push the two halves apart -- voila! A perfectly executed illusion! Well done, my heckling friend, well done!"
"OH MY GOD! He's dead! Look at all the blood!"
"No no, merely the stage props of a highly skilled professional magician, madam!"





"I don't believe this! Somebody call the police!"
"Thank you ladies and gentlemen, you've been a terrific audience. Now if you will excuse me, for my next trick I'm going to disappear..."

Wow, that was so lame, and yet so awesome! The stage is great. Great captions. Great everything (accept for the magician). Excellent work, Mr. Young. It was definitely well worth 10 minutes of my life.

Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant! That was VERY funny! Even more so since I watched Chris Angel last night. It was like you were miss Cleo looking into the future knowing I would have magicians on the brain! The Stage is great... but now I have to figure out a different stage idea for the Mocies... Not that mine was gonna look exactly like this (or half as good mind you). Anyway, did I mention this was brilliant? ~ Chris.

I'm surprised this doesn't even get 4/5 smilies. I guess someone is "spamming" you, as they say. Anyways, you have another excellent MOC here! I like it for its randomness.

It's... pffffft, hard to say something, it's simply so good !!! Very funny and original story. There's not a lot of MOCs about magicians, but it's maybe more the story of an hilarious psychokiller lol I love how you made the curtains (and all). Great job !

Well the title of this creation is the only thing here associated with mediocrity...the overhead stage lights, the colors, the lighting of the MOC...all just excellent. And the dialogue was nothing short of hilarious. Small MOC's or large, action or dialogue, humor or deep reflection, you never fail to do it right. Another GREAT addition to the portfolio!

The stage is perfect. I believe it has been said before but it needs repeating. Of course, the rest of this MOC is also very, very good, but it was the curtains that caught my eye.

1) As a magician, I know exactly what this poor performer feels like. No one appreciates a good trick - ahem - ILLUSION anymore. 2) If I post a magic MOC in the coming weeks, it ain't plagiarism. I've been thinking about doing it for months. MONTHS! 3) I totally take credit for the lighting. 4) Damn fine work, yet again. It's on my list of all-time faves.

Makes me think of that great bad movie The Wizard Of Gore. Try finding a copy of that. IT just goes to show you that heckling can lead to trouble. garth

Well, where should I start? The lighting is perfect, the photos are high quality, the colors are catchy, the curtains are an A+, the man getting chopped in half is fun, the humor is great, and the stage lights are a fantastic idea. I'm sure I could continue this list for at least three more minutes, but I'm tired of typing.
