This is an intersting topic. I have a couple of shows.

Show number one I have a table because I close with the cups and balls. For just this one trick I also need to bring:

big balls (for the final load)
A pouch (Thank's Gaz)
A hat
A gigantic load that goes into the pouch and eventually the hat

TT and silk
A vanishing bottle

Ropes for the prof. nightmare

4 Ike dollars for a coins across

Show number 2

4 ike dollars
insurance policy
bag of gimmicked balloons
hat pin
TT and a silk

Everything in this show fits in my pockets. I sometimes bring a Dr.'s bag and a harbin table that folds up to the size and weight of a magazine. As a matter of fact, it will fit in a magazine.

Everything with the exception of the balloons are instant reset and reuseable. This is not a mistake. I spent many, many, months, finding just the right stuff. I set up and break down in under sixty seconds with both shows.

Both shows can play between 8 min to an hour. If I do all my bits and pieces.

Both shows have proven to be good earners for me and I've been very happy with them.

I don't know how the juggler type guys do it! Lugging all that stuff, taking 45 minutes to set it all up and then another 30 to break it all down!

I have much respect for all the big circle juggler types!

Luckily big show = big bucks.

boy am I jealous, once I plant my self I stay there. I'm gussing near 50 lbs of stuff.(I can nock it down but it seems what ever I leave home will be the perfict prop for the day.) set up is no big deal and is often part of the show, packing up however. Smile
but yea big shows=big rush and usaly big$ (I don't count it till I get home)
the table sounds cool, the big stumbiling block to me using the cups and balls more is I don't want one more thing to cary, tell me more, please, price and suplier pro's and cons?
also what non performance things (if any)do you take? I don't juggle the broom, I sweep the space with it, so the parents let the kids sit. paper toules and BABY WIPES are for clean up, and a must if you do fire! lunch ect.
Boy am I jealous! Smile
any one else, or am I the only one hear with a hand truck for there show?

It really depends on the crowd you are expecting.

I can stay put for the time I want (although admittidly I am mainly seeking out future shows) with just a large briefcase full of things. I include my Table hopping props (little space), and some things from my childrens show (I perform where children are all over).
