How to be a good MC

Postby Selkiechick » Mon Mar 07, 2016 11:40 am

I am writing this is the wake of MarsCon, who had a last minute fill in MC for their Masquerade, who said a variety of inappropriate things about contestants during the show.
I am not sure Arisia has a very "deep bench" when it comes to this fairly complex skill set, so maybe we could have a workshop to help foster talent.

The Master of Ceremonies is the glue that holds the show together, does all the introductions, keeps the audience engaged and interested, and helps out by helping fill the time when something complicated is happening backstage. They are the net that catches our Masquerade Performers. Come and learn how it's done, and see if it's something you want to try.
