Most performers consider drinking before a show to be in bad taste and highly unprofessional. I've shared the stage (musicals) with some actors who consume small amounts to help them with their voice work for singing. Not for me as I believe that our body should be an instrument that we have complete control of. Now after the show...that's different Smile

Not a sip.

After - an ice cold beer perhaps.

Eh, depending on the gig, I'll have one beer or wine before a show, but not often. I don't adhere to strict rules about anything, including this. However, if you're finding you can't perform unless you're drunk or high, "got your buzz on", then yeah, you've got a problem that needs to be dealt with.

Never drink before a show. We are professionals.

Nor do professionals plagiarize from other performers' websites:

Interesting thread! Except some comments. (I hate "judges" or narrow minds)
We are ALL different.

Do what YOU want or feel is appropriate! Follow your own rules .
And Adapt to your audience. Follow their rules too, the venue rules, etc
As long as they like you and you like them.
Mutual respect is key too.
