Topic: Comedy audience member onstage welcome...
Message: Posted by: hagemagic (Dec 26, 2004 05:45PM)
What are some comedic ways you introduce or welcome an audience member on stage? Some that come to mind:
1. Hello (John), I'm Fred, this is Mic (pointing to mic). Very old gag.
2. Hello (Sarah), stand next to the star (pointing to floor). Right there next to the star. (Sarah), I'm the star.

Any others?

You can say a different name after they tell you their name.

I think it's Steve Bedwell who says "What's your name?" Audience member responds "Sarah". "Can I call you Sarah?" Audience member responds "yes". Magician responds, "what time should I call you."

I think that's something Bedwell says. My reference may be off. Any more? Surely there's more.

Ask them where they are from e.x.Hello(insert name here)where are you from?(wherever they say)You say I'm sorry.They repeat it.Then you say I heard you I am just sorry. Gets a laugh everytime.

This thread needs to be flushed down the toilet.
Message: Posted by: The Donster (Jan 1, 2005 05:40PM)
Why Flush it. or maybe it should be In Dispose.

Any more ideas on introducing the person but in a good way.
Message: Posted by: sniper1 (Jan 5, 2005 04:31PM)
Ok this is a very old one, but still one of the very best out there.

Sandy is it? Ok Sandy you don't know me, we have never met before, and I never offered you any money to come help me up here have I?

No. ***, I got the wrong person again!

Come on up here. Here, stand right here on top of this trap door.

If you are doing comedy you can always pretend that the person is refusing to let go of your hand after shaking hands with them. Good gag for the little folks.

And remember: always count your fingers after shaking hands with a magician!
