What is it with you guys and accepting jobs you're not ready for? Stop doing that. It gives working pros a bad name because you're not ready, even though others are.

You're still looking for effects for one. If you don't know what you're going to do weeks in advance, you're not going to have time to master any of it.

If you want people to have any impression that you are ready, delete your original post.

dude, only accept gigs if you have mastered your routine. This takes time. If you are still looking to buy effects, 10 days before your gig, you wont have time to master them and work them into a decent routine.

people do never learn...... :roll:

Nobody gives a crap about if the "tricks are good." The audience cares ONLY about hoe YOU ENTERTAIN. I use some of the easiest magic in the world, things that anyone can do, i.e. spongeballs. I can run a 10 minute routine with 4 spongeballs and have both kids and adults congratulate me on a wonderful show.

Why? I am just an ordinary spongeball magician. However, I make the routine interesting and different. I tell a story and use the spongeballs to show the story to people. What story do I use? Too bad, get your own because I am not telling mine. But this proves what we all have been saying, bendini. You are a screw up for accepting the job and thinking that a few "tricks" can help. Sorry but dogs and prostitutes do tricks, magicians perform effects.
