I'm not that bad, just when every other word is mangled I'll pitch a hissy fit over lack of skills or laziness in spelling. Now, to get to the question. You can do ANY effects that you want to. Your MUST be entertaining, that's all, just entertain the people and hat the heck out of them and you will succeed. I go out, do 10 minute routines with rope and a couple of silks, crank out 5+ shows an hour. Work for an hour, take a break, crank out another hour and break. I work until I reach my goal, or after that when I get too tired and then leave. My goals are simple, $100 a weekday and $500 for a Sat. or Sun. I used to work 7 days a week but now because I'm on dialysis I don't work on Tues and Thursdays and don't get out 'till about 2 PM on Sat.
Don't talk about it koliko987, Just start doing it. If you love what you do, it's not work. I'm lucky I get paid to play all day. I haven't worked for the last 15 years, since I started performing.
