Here are a few of the key mistakes I see: 1. way too long 2. ignoring the spectators 3. pattering away, describing (as you say) what a four-year-old can tell is happening 4. awful attempts at humor 5. creating a unique routine before understanding any of the old ones. 6. trying to be/act like a certain performer (gazzo, for instance) 7. thinking that this is entertaining: now they're here, now they're here, this one's here, that one's there, this one goes thru, that one doesn't, they're all over there, I put 'em all away and now they're all back, and now we've got oranges. ta da! 8. using the phrase... "now, I know what you're thinking. you're thinking maybe..." *puke* The last one is a personal pet peeve of mine because it is so often used sooooo poorly In fact, most spectators aren't thinking anything if you're not engaging them. If you're "pattering" instead of engaging them, they're probably just staring at the cups, the cute girl across from them, your unpolished shoes, your dirty fingernails, wondering what's for dinner, etc., or expertly watching for a slightest break in the patter so as not to embarrass you; waiting to make a break for it and taking off, for an early escape.
