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--
