You have talked a lot about tailoring effects to be unique to your spectator. Can you talk more about this? Do you just make up presentations on the spot that fit them or?

Thanks,
Brad

Hi Brad, I have a specific amount of ideas/ presentations.

I.e Drawing dupe, add no etc etc...and one main presentation I use for each type of routine (although I can jazz around that).

If someone tells me they are an accountant I might move into my presentation of the add a no (this is more specifically relevant for close up than stage) but I have done it on there too.

So I have all the routine structured and planned (scripted etc) but when the oppertunity arises I like to use a specific routine for a specific type of person (if that makes sense).

UNLESS they tell me they hate their job! Smile

But it makes them feel the performance was based around things from their life. You have to do it tactfully of course as you don't ever want to come across as someone who is a knowitall.
