Reaction Ad-Libs Starring Gary Darwin (DVD Download)

What do you say when...
What do you say when you're in the middle of your show and all of a sudden there's a huge crashing noise heard from backstage?
What do you say when a baby starts wailing away in the middle of your act? What do you say when somebody interrupts your show by walking in ten minutes late?
What do you say when a prop malfunctions?
What do you say when you walk out on stage, start talking and your mike doesn't work?
What do you say when your audience starts talking in the middle of your show?
What do you say when an audience member starts heckling you?
What do you say when you belch or sneeze or caugh or WORSE on stage?
What do you say when THINGS GO WRONG!
It's gonna happen!
As a live entertainer, you face a never ending barrage of technical difficulties, interruptions, and stuff just generally going wrong WHILE THE SPOTLIGHT IS ON YOU!
But that doesn't mean you have to lose your cool. Being a true professional means knowing how to handle ANY SITUATION you're presented with so that no matter what happens the audience gets their money's worth and more.
Gary Darwin is famous for having the perfect response for any situation. His audiences think that's because he's an incredible ad-lib artist, and that's true... but it's not the WHOLE TRUTH. The whole truth is that Darwin and other top professionals PLAN for these situations and PRACTICE their responses ahead of time. That way they just have to pick the right line, (not write it too!) when the pressure is on and the unexpected happens.
For this incredible new course Darwin has assembled a live and VERY VOCAL audience of top professional magicians, MCs, jugglers, ventriloquists and comedians to help contribute the one-liners that have worked for them close-up, stand-up and on stage. What results is a free-for-all in which Darwin and Company cover a TON of material, heckle and get heckled, trade advice (and insults), and everyone has a good laugh.
This is serious business, though, and if you're a live entertainer you'll benefit greatly from thinking and planning what you're going to say when the unexpected happens... BEFORE IT HAPPENS. This course is a tremendous resource and a huge head start in your quest to be prepared for anything on stage. Don't venture into your next live performance without it!
Have the PERFECT LINE for the 200 most common UNEXPECTED situations!
This course was filmed live and is being offered to you completely unsensored!
Darwin and his studio audience of seasoned entertainers cover everything from kid and family show humor to blue material designed for adult audiences.

this is one of the few non magic dvds that i have found useful. it helps the magician find his/her
way out of difficult situations or with difficult spectators. this is a situation that we have all
found ourselves in and it helped me handle such situations
