"How much do you want to bet?" "Man I bet you my whole next weeks allowance," I mean goodness how old are we?
Responding to something else you said about people practicing and not practicing and bombing. If you say you practiced/prepared and you bomb, then I say you didn't practice and prepare like you should of which would be:
practice practice practice each trick individually until, as paddy would say, do it in your sleep
ppp each trick individually with the patter
properly routine the tricks with transitions (and yes there is a way to routine your effects that is more effective than others)
ppp your routine
you're own your way now!
FREE SHOW for the fam and friends (or worst case go get fido)
Make any changes in timing and overall show you feel appropriate
FREE SHOW (after this refer to previous step until you have what you believe to be a marketable show)
FYI: my initial point about practice and bombing was for you kyle, but all those little steps were for Anik and people like him. (If I'm missing anything feel free to edit, as I'm sure you all will)
As not to seem too long winded I'm going to continue talking down below...
