Ever since the stone circle at Glastonbury this year and my heckling experience with a small crew of Hoppers I've become a heckling additic. No spinning experience is complete for me now without a few rounds of "constructive performance inhancing heckling." Indeed just the other night out spinning with my friends a bout of inspired heckling led to a full on Sumo-wrestling-camp-off with fire.

However I'm relatively new to this whole heckling thing, so I would like to hear from some experienced hecklers out there to gain some insite into this rare and beautiful skill. Because it is a skill. For the perfect heckle has to be many things. To be funny and yet to make a serious point, to critise and yet not offend, to be specific but yet not relevant... (insert more rambling on the virtue of heckling).

It increases audience to performer and the other way around too communication, which has to be a good thing for entertainment value, and jogs the one performing out of any sort of monotony they might have going in a bad situation by engaging their thinking muscles, thereby countering the possible (though by no means certain to happen) stagnating aspects of having a routine. And it can be wicked funny. biggrin
Like a heap of things I thionk it's situation dependant. My best ever heckling match had the exchange "Why don't you give me a break?"
"Neck'd be a favourite,"
"Can I choose the neck?" in it, any line of which wouldn't work out of context.

anything's good as long as it's funny and related to what they're doing. the better you know the performer the more cutting you can make it but remember to keep it funny rather than just negative... it also helps to be witty rather than just coming out with the same old crap... unless that's the joke in itself i guess... such as 'that's ok but can you do it on fire?' wink

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

as a street performer/busker of a few years now and also owner/operator of my own entertainment company i have to say some of the best heckles come from kids 8 and under. but my personal favourite is heckler- "i can do that better"
me- "go on then" handing over staff
heckler - tries n fails "oh [censored] i burnt my new jeans"
