I remember a nursing home in Montana a few years ago. An older gentleman laughed so hard, he fell out of his chair!

The school assembly bureau that booked me, found that these places do have a budget for entertainment, and the "old folks" were very nice audiences.

The comments above are all good. The reason that applause is not loud: ARTHRITIS! Watch for nods and smilesl!

Use effects that are colorfull, visual, and fun. Check with staff regarding audience participation. (wheel chairs, senile dementia, etc.)

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned PAPER HATS (THE CECIL LYLE TRICK). .

Here's a link to a thread about a regular nursing home gig I had a few years ago. It's got some thoughts and ideas, and If you scroll down, there's a sample set list.

Good luck and keep us posted!
