I’m trying to be more proactive about performing when I don’t have shows on the schedule. The last couple of weeks I’ve popped into some virtual magic open mics. When I do these open mics my set up is a lot simpler than when I do a more formal show.
The nice thing about performing in my kitchen is that I can put Post It Notes on the fridge to remind me of lines or things to do.
When I do more formal shows with the virtual studio set up, I have notes taped to my lights and camera. This is a great way to remember new lines, or names of people to thank. For in-person shows I put notes behind monitor speakers or inside my case.
Trying new material is something I live for, so it’s nice to have little things I can do to make it easier!
