Default variety shows - tip #2

Performing is privilege. If a producer puts you in a show you work to get there. You work to have a great act. You must be easy -- a pleasure even -- to work with. You do your time.

Rude acts, no matter how good, get to work exactly once. In over 500 shows exactly two acts have worked extra hard to be nasty to the producer.(me) Both acts were good - in fact very good, but I' don't need to work with either again. And I never recommend either.

In the world of variety there are two sorts of acts: good and getting good. Both are worth putting in a show. But no one ever said " That guy who is loud and late? Does anyone have his info?...I'd like to bet my reputation him."

Do your job.
