You may have with you onstage monstrosities you call props or illusions. You may even have dancing-girls clad in skimpy dresses to make the male part of the audience drool. Or adorable rabbits to make the children scream.
If you hide behind them thinking these are enough to entertain people, surprise, surprise!, you are right. The large illusions and props will dazzle the audience; the half-naked girls will make the boys sigh; and the rabbits will make the children delirious with excitement.
But how about you, the performer? How do they feel about you? Do they find you entertaining? Or forgettable?
You might just as well send them catalogs containing pictures of magic props, or show them the latest issue of Playboy magazine, or give them a copy of a primer on how to raise rabbits. That would probably have the same effect as your show.
