Default First Performance

Hi guys!

I have my first real performance coming up on Sunday. I'm performing in the closing variety show at the Edmonton International Street Performer's Festival. I plan on doing a quick fiveish minute act.

Considering I'm not funny, I'll do a quick intro to juggling for everyone in the audience. I'll run through some 3-5 club and balls work.

So, my question is, how would I finish an act like this?

Would I just finish it off with my five club juggling, or should I do sort of a finish to it. If I should have a finish, I'm desperate for ideas. I can't think of a way to involve the audience (ideally that'd be what happens) and then finish it with a trick.

I've thought of juggling something while standing on something supported by two audience members, but I'm not entirely sure what to do.

Any help with this would be great!

One easy out is to have a fellow cast member appear with a large fish net, and catch your five clubs in it. Enjoy yourself, Edmonton crowds are very kind.

I could try and have an audience member do it perhaps...I'll have to think about it though. Thanks for the advice!
