Resist the temptation to tell how the trick worked... keep them guessing and they'll be even more impressed with your show.
Never do the same trick more than once for the same audience. It makes it too easy for the audience to guess how it was done.
Control the seating arrangements... some of the tricks require that the people be looking straight at you. Have the audience remain seated throughout the show.
