How many times have you gone to a concert - then sang all the songs with the performer and all the way home?

-------------------------------------------
Lots of times, how many times have you done this in front of an audience?
-------------------------------------------

How many times have you tried to tell every joke and reinact every bit that you saw a comedian perform onstage?

--------------------------------------------
To friends and aquaintences, never in front of a paying audience, wel okay maybe once or twice.
---------------------------------------------

How many times have you told your friends about every scene in a movie and quoted the actors lines? Go Ahead ---- Make my day

---------------------------------------------
This would make a pretty dull act. There is a whole lot of differance between telling a friend about a movie and lifting entire sequences, if not the whole act, from a performer.
---------------------------------------------

So why in the world would we think that everyone who goes to see our acts, aren't going to descibe or try to duplicate what they've seen????

--------------------------------------------
I know they want to, that's why I tend to gear everything to my character so if they try to steal a bit they generally fall flat on their faces.

Okay, I've read every post on this thread and I still have no idea how Randy Wakeman knew that I have an Uncle Bob.

Just a lucky guess, Sid. Chanes were good it was "Uncle Bob" or "Uncle Buck." They both ask you to pull on their index fingers--
