Wrestling, Nassau Coliseum, Anton Anton discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network


Does a joke okay. There's no need to turn to your table and be like that's so true one time. Remember when you were at the store check no no no. Here's how comedy show works. Comedian onstage says joke. You Laugh at jokes then you shut up and listen for next Joe and listen for life. There is no thing where you turn back conversation that that that gets annoying The check drop is the most notorious thing in comedy that comedians. Hey we hate the check drop. That's that's when that's when the show is about ten fifteen minutes away from ending and The comedy club has to cash everybody out. So they put the Czechs down for all your drinks and food and then because then people are no longer paying attain. There must be a distract. Some clubs are great. There's this club called the stress S. factory in New Brunswick New Jersey and they don't do the backdrop until the end of the show. They wait a couple of clubs. Do that but Yeah when that happens because then you have conversations conversations. People turning like what two drinks is twenty five blocks not manager. You got that whole thing so I literally have a pardon my act. That's more story driven and long form and not bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-ba not rapid fire for the check. Drop so you can Dan tune out for a second interesting back in. I've literally put it in there and things like that. Like people don't realize the COMEDIANS are doing. I'm sure there's a million things in wrestling where we go like. Oh Shit fight in the crowd and no one's watching the Matt born rules just put somebody in a hold. Oh yes they're not watching awesome anyways the you'll always see like like Nassau Coliseum or something there's fights in the other all the time on TV. You're supposed to look in this way. Everyone's looking over there. Yeah I was wondering about that. 'cause I just watched a w fight for the fallen and There was I forget what match. There's something where the crowd was booing and and then cheering but not for like the pot the time when someone needs sense. Yeah it didn't make sense at all and I think even even the announcer Said something like they're not reacting to this crowd and I'm sitting there going what's happening in the crowd and shoot it. Yeah Yeah yes and then Obviously the wrestlers then become aware that they go all right headlines Ako wrestling headlock exactly. Yeah exactly unlock. Yeah do you guys when you hear. You're the crowd do something like that like you're conscious of it. You're only where was supposed to be in like when you're on stage and you know everything that's going on career. Obviously we were in the round but still I can tell what's going on I can tell the people are into the sides of paying attention if they're looking over here looking over there waiting for something else to go on. Yeah so oh you got to learn how to read. Your crowd is what you get with experience and that goes for comedy. It's crowded analysis. If people knew what I was thinking about during my my set it would boggle their minds. Because I'm thinking I'm not just thinking about what I'm saying I'm thinking about okay. Like all right wins the check drop. Is that person videotaping That person seems like their their their arms to the whole time. Let me let me try something else to get them in my cursing too much do they did. They say something I'm in about five minutes. I'm going to tell a joke to call it a black guy whereas a black guy you're orchestrating the whole gang's yes which I'm sure whether it be Iraq show wrestling show. You're probably doing something similar for let me ask you. It's especially like a rocket you mentioned the arms trust when you're especially as an opening band you get a lot of arms crossed so for us different ways to be saying to their face urge I contact always makes people very nervous to mother will open up. Yeah what what are your tricks. Comedian and try to get somebody to do that. I contact same thing like like a 'cause there's this illusion that a lot of audience members have that the performer cannot see them. It's this weird thing where it's like. Well I'm in an audience. It's like a movie theater and we can see you. We know we can see your reaction. We see when you cross your arms. We see you when you're turning and even if you're if we can't hear that you're you're talking to a friend. We see that you're doing it so yeah there are and So one thing that I've done one trick and I pass on to a couple of the COMEDIANS. Sometimes sometimes you'll have people talking like like I said like. Oh that's so true. Remember the time when like they'll have a conversation during your set and they're not realizing that they're being too loud or they're they're drunk. Whatever what I'll do is I'll quieter and I'll start talking very slowly and very quiet and not yelling because if I yell over for them? The audience then raises their voice to be heard themselves but if he's talking quiet and they're like and then become self aware and they're like Oh shit like I can hear me very very clearly. No one wants to be that guy at the club. Where like right before the music like the music drops out and that's when you're the one screaming so I got? Everyone fears everyone. Everyone doesn't want to be that person. So yeah the whole Jericho character in two thousand eight nine with a suit and tie guy that I used that element completely. I was watching no country for old men with the Anton Anton. Sugar Bronco Have Your and spoke very quietly and so when I started doing that I found that made. This was in the height. Eight of the what right talking quieter. I'm forcing people to have to shut up and listen to me. And then when they shut up and listen that's when they get into it right and then you then you hook them. Think about like Think similar things happen when you're watching a when you're watching. TV show when when they're having conversation win Game of thrones was did a couple of where they're like really dark and it was hard to see. I paid more attention because I was looking for a little detail. And then that's when I cassette. Because I'd I'd watch the show with all the lights on in the house and stuff going on a phone Zao but like now when it's dark episode and I can't see all lights are off. I'm watching it night. Phones done moans like now paying attention so there are little tricks like that that you can do that will make An audience pay an is pay attention whether rather be comedy a wrestling or yeah or twenty. Whatever I I have to compliment you because I've been watching A. W. O.? I'M A fan. Yes you have got me hooked it. It seems like that age W is for the marks and wwe is like it. You know it's it's like the difference between your kiss. FM Pop music where they're trying to like appealed to everyone they they want. They want People driving their mini vans to school not to be offended event. You have then you flip channels too like the death metal station where they're like we have our fans it is. It was like you said it's an alternative to what's now become the norm and it's nothing wrong with having people giving people a chance to have options absolutely genitive tentative. Great will like you. That are super interesting. Those creating a huge buzz through overselling out these buildings and five ten fifteen minutes. That was gonna stay like that for the next year. I don't know but at least you're giving people something different than you said something and I and say this. I love 'cause when because whenever we talk you asked me about about comedy and I and I and I got to you wrestling Uses a press conference where your promo at five for the fall and was the first time you've walked out there with no script no I I'm in twenty years because I worked for. WBZ So anytime you do not know how shows live events. Non Televised Charts the different thing. Yeah just grab the MIC talking but on TV it's always so very orchestrated in wwe. So this was the first time I didn't have to do that. And even to the point point were. I'm not even GONNA come up with an outline. I'm just GonNa have to things that I want to say in the rest of their. Just make it up as they go along and see if I can do it. Live without a net. Yeah I mean. Have you ever done any Improv. At all it's not easy but before you answer that Brad. North that time of year where everyone's thinking about New Year's resolutions. Maybe you want to be healthier. Eat better her.
