    Smile Shazam!!

    OK, the trick with this was that you put a silver ring in a box and made it vanish by turning the box over so the ring was hidden under a false bottom.
    All set, I turned the box over, said

    "SHAZAM!!!"

    Do you often hear a magician use "shazam!" or "presto" or what else?
    Second, how would you utter shazam?

    THANKS.

    Shazam, presto, presto-change-o, and abra-cadabra are all common terms used by amateur magicians. (Professionals don't usually bother with such corny phrases.)

    If you go to this page:

    and scroll down, you can click on "Shazam!" and hear it pronounced.
