M.C. Guidelines?  
  Started at Mon Feb 3 14:38:38 2003
With all of this next level of improv frenzy, I thought it would be a good time to ask for some input on a topic that has been nagging me. What makes a good M.C.?
I have heard a lot of generalities, and rules of thumb, but not really any concrete set rules or guidlines that, to be a great M.C., you have to follow. Is there any? Or is the task of Mcing so intuitive that there are no rules other than generalities? Can it be broken down? What do you think?

No way it can be a mathematical formula. The crowd dictates what it wants and you have to go with the flow.

Some things that help are:

1) Your decision is final. If you say something, don't waffle. Weakness like that is blood in the water.

2) Assume an authoratative stature. Stand tall, be confident. Don't hide in the back of the stage or below stage. Get up on stage and in the front. Walking through the crowd is fine, but if people have to turn their heads for a long time, it's a pain.

3) Keep it going. You control the pace of the show, so don't let things die in between sets. If the tech misses a cue, get up there and take control

4) Keep the crowd warm. Don't be afraid to ask the crowd to clap someone in or cheer. It gets them going.

/My two cents

Without a good M.C., the show suffers. Once Paul W. showed up on some sort of "perscription" drug. It was funny to us but the crowd... whatever it was funny to them too!! Even though he didn't introduce any games. He just said go. Ha Ha What a blast. Anyway, a good emcee is important. Truly.wink


Dude, you just killed a goat...and he had a family.

The MC is an actor just like the others on stage. Just because the MC is introducing the games and telling them what happens, doesnt mean that they are not as important as the actors. The MC has to have rules just like everyone else. They should be funny too.

one thing that always bothered me is when an mc acted like he or she was better than the audience or the actors.

just because you are important, doesn't mean you should be condescending. you need the audience and actors more than they need you.

respect goes both ways. i know you have the mic, but as soon as you are done talking, the people that you disrespected or talked down to are left to entertain.

think about that. we're all geniuses, right?

I agree, I do believe that there is a fine line between acting/being funny and acting like an ass. The MC needs good humor, but only enough to entertain the audience when the others are not doing so. I am sorry, perhaps I did not explain myself well enough.

ve made and left their mark on a particular sport. But even with that popularity marketers use their skills and know-how to create something for everyone even if it's no more than a keychain. When a person is in the headlines every day or every week in newspapers and magazines on TV and the Internet you naturally desire some kind of bonding with that person. After all every one has the insatiable need to be connected to something. All across the country there are sports clubs and organizations that engage in various kinds of activities that will enhance the value of sports memorabilia. Another factor you have to take into consideration when you think of the value of sports memorabilia is the availability. Supply and demand factors into the value of sports memorabilia.

But what ever reason the value is more when there are not very many. If you see an abundance of mementos such as flags Adriano Barcelona Camisetas , caps, buttons, signature sunglasses and so on the price is cheaper. The value in these items comes when you keep them for long periods of time and there are very few in circulatio
