Overview

Clowns are experts at provoking our emotions. When audiences are told not to laugh, it becomes even funnier. They want to laugh, let their insecurity or worries go away, and share a good moment with the other audiences. The host can create a rule for those who couldn't help but laugh; invite them to do the gesture you tell them to do, do some mini quiz, or anything to make the experience leap off the screen.

How to set-up

Things to prepare:

  • Built-in camera (your laptop) or good quality webcam/Stand alone camera in a stable/fix position where it can capture the whole kitchen that you cook and/or perform;
  • A screen where you can see and interact with audiences;
  • Space to perform


Master Google Meet

  • Take a first 5-10 mins to let Guests in by clicking “accept” while using this time to do an introduction and warm up your audiences. Make sure everyone enters before a show starts.
  • Ask audiences to pin your screen, mute when you are performing (vice versa), or turn on their camera during activities or Q&A. Use this excuse to interact with audiences.
  • You can use tiled layout to see and interact with all audiences. Open a chat room as well to see their comments and reactions.
  • Are you performing at your home or training center where there is background noise? Use https://krisp.ai/ to cut noise for better user experience.

Make an experience flow seamless and engaging. What matters is not how sophisticated the show is but how the audiences enjoy and value the experience.  Tailor each project with clear target audiences in mind so that you can meet and exceed the expectation. Technical shit happens, but be always calm and entertainers as you are on stage.
