I would like to learn about gags where the cocksure performer fails and becomes deflated. I know there are magic tricks where this occurs but I was wondering about gags. I thought it sounds like something a clown would do so I am hoping maybe you can guide me in the right direction. I was also hoping Larry Clark might chime in...

Specifically here is an idea: the performer comes on stage very cocksure, with a cigar - a display of success! he goes to light the cigar and it explodes in his face, or droops down a la breakaway wand, the over-confident performer is now embarrassed and ashamed, humiliated - all to the amusement of the audience.

Are there any clown gags/resources related to this type of piece? To clarify, this is something I would do as a magician, not as a clown, but I'm just not sure that it's right yet, looking for more ideas...
