Introducing Jim Lang



I'm often asked, "Does someone need to introduce you or do you introduce yourself?"Actually it is very important that you have someone introduce me. Here is why:

During my show I will focus on interaction with the audience. That includes on-stage helpers; but it also includes applause and laughter. it is not a good idea to deliver a long introduction; but it is crucial that you get the crowd applauding as I come forward or from back stage. The introduction can be as simple as:

"Ladies and gentlemen (boys and girls) we have a very talented and funny magician to entertain us today. Let's welcome Jim Lang with a big round of applause." Of course, you lead the applause.

I will follow up your introduction by assuring everyone that if they see something they like they should feel free to applaud and if they feel like laughing that is OK, too. The point is that people enjoy performances more when they are involved with applause and laughter; but we have all become so conditioned by movies and television that we often don't react to live performers.

TV Applause

In fact TV studio audiences are revved-up before the show by a producer who gets them laughing and applauding and who points out the Applause signs.

So your introduction does this job but in a much more subtle way. You should not remind them to applaud or laugh when they see something funny. I'll take care of that; but I do need for you to get things started.
