Shooting the Breeze
Young actors often complain: they have to get up for make-up at four in the morning, wait on location all day long while not shooting the scene until eight at night—they say it can be exhausting. There’s no reason to complain, though; really, half of an actor’s pay is the money being paid for waiting. Stand up comedians aren’t so different; half of their earnings are money paid for getting cussed out and booed off stage.

The correct answer is 63%. Here’s my calculation method: if the success rate is 1%, then the rate of failure is 99%; when we have 100 attempts, the rate of failure for 100 complete attempts becomes 37%—so the chance of being successful, at least once, is 63%.
