some giant angry man broke through my audience and stormed through my show and broke out through the other side.
.....of course I said something.
something really bad about him.
unfortunately he heard me and broke back into the crowd,
so I screamed and ran,
thankfully he chased me.
around and around we went, weaving in and out of the audience, he almost caught me so I hid behind a fat old lady and kept dodging him back and forth by using her as a shield.
he backed up into the middle of the show cussing at me.
I was in the audience behind the lady and he was in the middle of a circle of about 300 people when he realized where he was and froze up silent and still.
only swaying a little bit, like a flower in the wind....beautiful.
beautiful, because I realized he had stage fright.
and he had it bad.
so I went out marching at him with my chest out lookin like a braggart.
I walk up about 3 feet from him and in a loud voice said, "alright you! ready to settle down and get into the audience where you belong?"
he said, "yeah, ok."
I pointed at the audience and he ran into his new place with them.
shortly after, some other guy was heckling me and I said, "look mister you don't wanna play with me, you see that big guy right there, he's my friend and if you mess with me he's gonna mess with you."
and my new giant friend told the heckler, "yep..don't make me come over there."
you see he was good at thumping people, and I was good at what I did, and by respecting and bring attention to his abilities I made a friend.
i think, in a busking show you should always be building a crowd from the beginning of your show to the end.
