The Assistants Revenge

Many magicians use assistants as helpers, and because audiences are used to seeing them standing on stage not doing much apart from looking glamorous for most of the time, the assistants revenge style of comedy can work quite well.

To accomplish this type of comedy, the scene ideally needs to be set by the magician by perhaps including various 'put-downs' of the assistant verbally or visually in the lead up to the assistants revenge.

The basic premise of this idea is that somehow the assistant is able to perform some magic that 'gets their own back' on the magician who has treated them unfairly. It can work well, because the audience tend to drum up support for the underdog, and it makes a refreshing change from the usual stereotyped magician / assistant relationship.
