I have been performing on stage for money and crowds of people since about 1963. Some of the shows have gone unbelieveably well. Sometimes I can plug into the magic interchange between performer and audience, where each feeds the other until an amazing synergy takes place; when every person in the audience is completely engaged and I as the performer am completely connected and aware of each one of them. I keep doing shows trying to get that to happen again. Most of the time, there is a rewarding interchange but once in a while there is that magic. And once in a while, nothing goes right. You can’t connect with them; they wouldn’t pee on you if you were on fire. Sometimes the show is going great and you say one thing and the entire audience recoils and you’ve lost them. Let’s talk about those days.
