Posted:the size and length depends on how much is in your mouth and how much of it you expel at once (kinda obvious) and my only advice for that would be practice with water as much as possible (i often do it in the shower) and see what you can figure out
for length of time fire breathing (which allows you to take away the ignition point like this https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/970156_478252288925903_314549224_n.jpg
which is what i aimed for when learning) try first using less fuel and see how long you can do it for with or without taking away the ignition flame, you'll figure out the amount of pressure you need that way then go back to using the amount of fuel youre currently using before increasing that slowly until you find a nice sweet spot

1) when experimenting with extending time length you will likely dribble a bit so be sure to have something to wipe off excess
2) i dont know how much fuel you currently have in your mouth, by 'using less fuel' i used about a shot of paraffin
3) if the flame hits your lips/tongue stop exhaling immediately and i recommend a bit of vasaline in case this happens
4) as always, if its possible to find someone to teach you in person then do it, even if it means travelling a little bit to do so

as for tricks, i only go for 1 quick burst that takes the audience by surprise while using poi, the rest of the time i generally use the end of a staff when only 1 end has gone out. still working on other things to bring a bit of firebreathing to

I dont want to be called 'the greatest' or 'one of the greats'; let other guys claim to be the best. I just want to be known as a clown, to me thats the height of my profession. It means you can do everything-sing, dance, and above all, make people laugh
