Happened to me, too. Last year in Milwaukee. Long story, but, ooopsie! Bled like a stuck mentalist with 20 minutes of show left to do. (Fortunately, the waitstaff rushed some towels up to the stage for an impromptu dressing.)
But I kept the bit in the show. Gonna do it tonight, with the added line "Anyone see this on TV last night?" I'll then let them look for little pop-out pegs...and, indeed, anything else they might want to find. I think it may make the effect stronger.
Yeah, exposure sucks. But it ain't what you do, it's how you do it.
