It seems to me that the performance was at a convention and everyone seemed to, if not know everyone, at least have some passing familiarity with others there.

Plus, as I mentioned earlier, Amber certainly held her own on stage and threw one right back at Marc.

Wasn't that convention in Las Vegas? For Vegas that was tame. I thought Marc handled the spectator wonderfully, and never went over the line in my opinion. In fact, she was a great performer herself. Her comments and facial expressions made me think she was quite comfortable on stage and in no way seemed offended by Marc's dialog.

It that was all part of pre-arranged act, then fine. Just not to my taste. But if she was an unrehearsed volunteer, not cool.

On the other hand, I do enjoy reading Marc's Café posts which have always suggested to me a man who is quite witty, charming, and respectful to others.

You should watch the whole clip, it gets the response any mind reading performer would want. Entertainment, good applause, fun and something they cannot explain. I appreciate that not everyone will see the funny side or that some may take offense but as I stated in my earlier post a good performer adjusts to his environment. If I had a 60 year old lady on stage with me with her husband in the audience I would have been the charming mind reader who at most may have paid her a compliment.

However at a convention where everyone is having fun, kind of knows each other and it is a relaxed environment then you can let loose and have some fun. There can be no debate here the audience I was performing for loved the performance, had no idea how it was done, enjoyed the banter, laughed and applauded. The public audience members paid me some wonderful compliments as did the pros such as Larry Becker, Lee Earle, Marc Salem, Ken Webber, Docc Hilford, Mark Strivings blah blah blah..

For me that is every box ticked with what I want my audience to experience..

Trust me you should have seen one of the acts that went on before me.. Now some of that was close to the mark but the audience loved it..

My humor is not going to be for everyone but the key skill is knowing when to use it, how much you use it and who you use it with..

Good things..

Hi Paul Dela,

Andy Nyman said I was like Ricky Gervais.. It's all Peter Nardi's fault, he knows The Office like the back of his hand and constantly recites lines from the show.. The bit where I say 'Easy' is very Ricky Gervais..

I wish they would make a third series or at least a special for Christmas..
I love that show as well..

Good thoughts and thanks for the kind words..

No offence Mark.. I want to shoot Ricky Gervais with a big gun Smile
The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.

The Office (UK) is the best sit-com ever made.

I've actually be re-watching I'm Allen Partridge this week. Another show that broke a lot of ground in it's day.

It's nice to see performers using some real, natural humour in their shows. I'm tired of seeing these old fashioned, cheesy lines that you'd expect old fat drunk men to chuckle about. After dinner speech humour if you will.

The first thing I thought when I started watching it was how Ricky Gervaisian it was, funny to read on and see others thought the same. I enjoyed the clip but felt a bit cringey when you started to talk to the lady sexually and went to escort her off stage... I think your looks are definatly suited more to someone who 'gets some' every night in Vegas and is confident and sexual around women but not in a creepy way.

I think you would be best to watch the whole clip. It was a very entertaining piece.

I think if you perform for a living you have the experience of gauging the type of audience you are working with. I perform for all sorts of people from working class salt of the earth to upper class wealthy business men, what works for one certainly doesn't always for the other. It is the professionalism of the performer who makes it work and Marc knows this and acted accordingly.

Great clip

Marc, don't sell 60 year old women short. They are experienced, and KNOW WHAT THEY WANT.

The hard part is getting them to write it down and fold it up...

It is really funny. you can clearly see that marc feels at ease with people he already knows.

I guess he would not have made the ample chest comment in another situation.
even though I'm sure some publics would appreciate that kind of comment.

Hey Silver Tongue..

The only remark I made before she started on me was the ample chest thing and a little earlier about her being stunningly beautiful. I escorted her off the stage after she made a sexual remark about spending the previous night with me. A good performer will take moments like that and run with them, she thought it was funny and actually laughs along to pretty much my whole performance as do the audience..

I get your point but feel Amber gave as good if not better than she got.. If on the other hand I had someone on stage who really looked afraid or intimidated I would be and can be the caring charming gent. Again I feel it is about being versatile, adjusting to your audience and ultimately creating something that they enjoy, be it mystery, laughs, self deprecation, shock or intrigue..

Thanks about the looks thing, I am taking that as a compliment but my statement was true.. 5 nights in Vegas, beautiful women everywhere and not one bit of interest, then on stage in the middle of a performance.. Well you know the rest..

Good thoughts..

Older women are like cheese..the darker and bluer the veins, the creamier the texture....

that's what my dad tells me anyway...

if met with an attractive woman, flirt gently, and as often as it seems sensible - without the need for police or bouncers to be called...

it was a great, cheeky little clip - from what I've seen, Mr.Spelmann is a great entertainer, and I've enjoyed everything I've seen him in...

including that dodgy video he made in the mid80s called "nardi-lovefest"...that educated me in ways I could not imagine...
