"All"? You feel you speak for everyone, do you?

You haven't the foggiest idea "what" I am, so there's no point in bothering with "who" I am. As for youself... you're a guy who has a hard time dealing with being wrong.

If you are still going to do the show, the "In and Out Rope Escape" is quick to learn, easy to do, funny and plays pretty big. Plus the only "props" you need are a length of rope and a suit jacket.

PPPPPPP! Ha! Me, too! --I've used that little acronym many times, and it certainly applies here!

The "other one" is "FAIL TO PLAN, AND YOU PLAN TO FAIL"

I believe thet I've expressed my opinion, in situations like this several times in the past.

This time, Charliecheckers, Magical Motivator, and Magic Watcher2005 have said it quite well. I FULLY AGREE WITH THEIR COMMENTS. Jimgerrish raised the "right" sort of questions. Kent Wong's first paragraph of his first post was sensible.

Perfect Practice Prevents P*$$ Poor Performance..........I'm missing a P.

There are two versions, both similar and known as the "Seven P's":

Perfect Prior Practice Prevents P*$$ Poor Performance

and

Perfect Practice and Planning Prevents P*$$ Poor Performance

The second makes more sense (since both "practice" and "planning" already imply "prior") and is also more appropriate for a magic act.

More than that, actually...I have heard it as "Proper Prior Planning Prevents Pi** Poor Performance"

I love these threads where the OP comes in and starts a discussion, asking for assistance, then never rejoins the discussion after the first day. I think this is why you have to be cautious when offering advice to these inquiries. I thought Blair offered the most reasonable and well thought out advice, but without knowing anything about Inshanemagic, I think it takes too much of an assumption that an inexperienced performer could pull it off in an entertaining fashion. College students are unlikely to be a gentle audience for a performance that goes wrong. I hope Inshanemagic returns to TMC to discuss areas of magic that will allow him to develop in a more systematic way, in areas where he has true interest and can benefit from the great advice that is offered.

Agreed, Charlie...it is odd that he never returned to update us. Perhaps he felt that a few people were being rather harsh?
