What good one liners, jokes or puns do you have?
Do you have an interesting way of dealing with a heckler?
There is rarely a need to put down a heckler, and with drunks I don't even try I just look at some friends of his and ask them if he is always like this. Talking to a drunk doesn't help. But to get his friends to tone him down, that works very well. (Never ever get angry, and always say things with a tongue in cheek. You are there to entertain, not to be a school teacher.) But if someone wants to get to me this is what I say:
So you think you are funny? You must know there are 2 great differences between you and me. I get paid and I am on the stage. When you want to know more about getting into the bizz talk to me after the show. (give him a smile and to him and the whole room it is clear you handled the situation)
I only had to use this 4 times in all the years I have been on stage. 2 times they came to me after the show to give a hand, one of them wanted a photo of me and him. Funny how those things go.
All the best,
