Gr8, you bring up a very great point.....about burning out. This is a delicate line because if you do a show when your burnt people (sometimes your fans) can see your ugly side. I pushed myself last winter season in Asia and it led me to doing a show drunk and almost taking my shirt off...which is taboo in Thailand. I can suggest following your intuition. If your gut says "please don't do one more show, just call it a day", then I'd suggest listening. It also helps to really exparment with your act, your costuming, voice and character. Try a silent show. Some suggest ending with a huge trick, well why not ending with a small trick? Change the order around of your routines. In those moments you can learn something new about yourself which is always a plus. The idea is keeping it new for you internally so you project that newness outwardly to your audience. After all, as an artist, its not your job to decide wether or not what you do has value. De-attach yourself. I write this to remind myself btw...
