What to do if you screw up in your performance:(not answered directly)

There are several reasons why we screw up in our performances.
)Nerves
)Lack of Practice
)We are Human
)Hecklers

These are what I believe to be the most common reasons for screw-ups.
All of them can be fixed or over come to some extent- being human is one that is probably hardest to compensate for. I will do my best to cover these, in how I have and would “coverâ€

I like this essay. Thinking on your feet is essential for a magician.

A good Eugene Burger teaching is to stop viewing hecklers as hecklers, and simply view them as audience members. They're trying to have a good time themselves, which, as a "side-effect" bothers the person performing. But the best thing you can do is roll with the jokes they're making and with what they're doing.

The best way to eliminate an enemy is to befriend it 'n all that jazz.
