Oh yeah it's another one of these lol. I'm stepping out of the world of hobbiest in the the line of semi pro, at least for one night. I'm doing a 40 minute stand up show and an hour walk around at a local bar on a Saturday night during a long weekend. So I expect a big turn out which is already getting my nerves up.

My close up set is sorted, I'll be keeping a simple 5 min set with a mental card effect (Barrie Richardson's do you want to continue probably.) a name reveal and a drawing dupe.

For the stage show I'll open with bank night, I have an odd ball set at my disposal for a truth and lie test, the second half will be a memory reveal (probably a duel reality piece like Derren's reminiscence) the lazy mentalist chair test (this is the resteraunte trick which fooled penn and teller) and the glass box prediction for a confab (haven't decided on a theme might play it safe and stick with the holiday theme or try a presentation of my own based on the idea of catching dreams in bottles like in the BFG).
The memory reveal and the confab will be my closers already got a nice twist for the glass box to create a strong moment of utter disbelief in the audience as they realise what I'm about to do before it happens.

Mainly now I need a couple of effects for act 1 and some extras in the event things move too quick. I'm open to suggestions, I've already got two other pros to call on personally but I'll listen to anything pitched. Mostly though any support is welcome.
