Quick Fixes

I was once performing in a tent on the beach at a Marriott Hotel in Florida. I was in the middle of my finale, precariously balancing on top of my 12 foot high unicycle on top of a stage that was 4 feet off the ground. Suddenly there was a power failure and we lost all the lights in the tent. Fortunately every table had one little tea candle on it. Hovering 15' in the air in the dark I asked everyone to bring their candle up to the stage. 450 people encricled the stage apron and we finished the rest of the show by candlelight.
