:evil: On my street every single person is a heckler. At school, almost every single person is a heckler. I tkink I know only 4 people who aren't hecklers, and one is moving and 2 are my parents! Where should I perform?

it sounds to me like you need to do a couple of things:

1. choose your audiences better.

2. *YOU* choose when you perform(dont take demands from
people who want to see a trick)

3. learn to control and work with your crowd( you are there
to entertain them) if you show them that they will be less
likely to see you as the enemy, or as someone they have
to give a hard time to :)


there will always be hecklers, but with practice you can learn to work with

them and even prevent them :D

hope this helps :wink:

experience is the best way to learn anything about performing :!:

but ther are some good books on the subject, do a search on "crowd control"

in the search box, also look at other topics in here :wink:

Tell them to f off.But seriously,If you show that your just trying to enteratain and get mostly everyone on your side,then when you do get a heckler the crowd will take care of him of her for you.
