Does it really matter? I don't see how not knowing what a bandana is has an effect on any of the comedy.


The very first joke is pulling out a banana instead of a bandana. If people don't know what a bandana is then the very first joke fails. Who would want to start a routine that fails at the start?

I have heard comments such as, “Why are they calling a banana a bandana?” or “What’s a bandana?” So that is why I do what I do.

Well maybe but I think you are making too much out of it. I have performed this loads of time and it always gets great laughs. Your facial expressions tell the audience that the banana is NOT was is supposed to be in there. All the jokes work from then on even if they don't know what a bandana is. It least I hope so or else they have only been laughing at me. Smile

I am not making too much of it. I just explained what I do. That is all.

I have also done this effect many times and know how to do it well.

I have played where people were from the UK, Middle East, Scotland, Russia, Japan and elsewhere to include USA. All these people being at the same show! So believed me when I say not everyone in the world knows what a bandana is.

Heck, I have played where only one or two half way understood English.

If trying to make everyone understand all my jokes and what I do is making too much out of something than I am guilty.

This is my last post on this because I do not want people to think that I am making too much out of this. Which I didn’t know I was doing until you brought it to my attention.

I think the idea of vanishing a squished banana can transcend any language barrier.

It won't make much sense but if your any good at presenting the thing it just be silly slapstick.
