Stand-Up Comedy Introductions – Write Your Introduction on a 3 X 5 Index Card

This will help because the M.C. can stick it in his pocket and read it on stage. Print it in large letters that’ll be easy to read. Sometimes performers go on stage without their glasses. Also, bring two or three duplicate cards because the M.C. may lose the original before it’s time to bring you up. If you have an extra, you’ll be able to hand it to him just before you are brought on stage.

I’ve got consonants in my name who’ve never met.”

If he doesn’t spell his name phonetically for M.C.’s, they’ll either screw it up completely or just introduce him as “Mark.” This is okay if you have material to deal with the recurring incident.

The M.C. gets a laugh, and you get to introduce yourself.
