This is a tricky question. I don't think there's a 'right' answer, but what I do know is, when I'm working on a new trick, I always perform it for people I trust--people who will give me honest feedback--before I take it to the masses. Whenever a trick is new, I know I'm going to suck at it. But that's okay. The key is improving and improving...so when I do take it into a 'real' set its ready to go.
Practice it no less than a 100 times and 500 is usually better. 10,000 to truly master it.
You want to be able to do the mechanics without hesitation or pauses and no "flashing". AS you get that into muscle memory, you can work out the presentation.
Show it to magicians first, so that you don't expose magic. They can give you tips as well.
Finally show it to some people and modify your presentation based on their responses.
I work in the hotel industry and I practice on my own first to get the handling down and then I go to town on my coworkers , if I pass them I know I'm ready for anyone , these people are a tough crowd, and will give no room for error that is what makes you perfect, let people catch you but learn from it and you'll rearly go wrong.good luck.the street is unforgiving bro.don't get busted .
It feels like that's something that you should know or feel. When you are able to perform a trick without thinking about the method and just able to focus on the presentation you know you're definitely close!
Ricky Jay said he practiced a trick for a year before showing to anyone but practice until you have down smooth and not just the trick practice your script for the trick also
I'm old school. I practice my butt off until I think I have it without fumbling. Then, I practice in front of a mirror to get the audiences view. If you can do it in front of a mirror and fool yourself, you're ready.
Start off by showing friends and family to work out the nerves...plus it's a great way to learn audience management as well.
First practice the effect over and over until you feel comfortable. Then find someone you trust, perform the effect for them. Get their honest feedback and then practice again.
You will know when it feels right.
