Today I was in a foul mood. I was late to the pitch, the airconditioning was broken on the bus, and I was mad at the world and especially at the stupid useless punters!

I went at my edge like a pitbull...I really didn't care if they walked out or not. One rich white guy was heckling me...I needled him unmercifully. I used Gazzo's bit where I yell "JOHN'S HERE...see, nobody gives a ****!"

Well, that guy gave me a $20 and the rest of the hat was HUGE.

Go figure.

In some environments, people respect attitude and balls. Right crowd, right time. May fly like a brick tomorrow.

One thing is for sure, you are always better off if they don't think you need them. If you come across too polite, or needy, they will not drop anything for you.

There is a balance to be struck within your character, (by within your chracter I mean you cant be milktoast Jeckle one time, and over the top Hyde, or Gazzo the next..unless that is within your character.) between confidence and arrogance, and even pushing past insolence. And on any given day, you might be anywhere on the scale, even to one extreme or the other, and have it work great. Or as Michael said, it might fly like a brick.

That is what is so cool about a different crowd every set. You have to sense the right level to connect with them, to maximize the entertainment value to them, and the enjoyment to yourself.

If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.
