For every action there should be a reaction

In the phenomenally successful act of Cardini, who was one of the greatest manipulators of all time, his wonderful reaction to finding a card at his fingertips was what created the comedy, and at the same time, emphasised the magic.

Let's give you some other examples of this 'incompetent who turns competent' genre that you may not have considered. You might appear drunk and out of control, acting unpredictably so that the audience really doesn't know what you might do next. Or maybe you could pretend to be a 'stand in' for the magician who couldn't make it, or who is late for the show. In this instance, you could pretend that he left you instructions for the tricks, and that you'll 'try your best' to perform them.
