Warm-ups, Openers, the Show before the Show.   How do you start your show?  Do you warm up your audience with a trick or a story or a song?  Do you address the audience and do  something before the show officially begins?   Be prepared to tell us what you do, or show us what you do.  Dennis Thomas …. will   present a few warm-ups and tell us what he does to engage the audience before the show begins.
