How Many People Do We Need For A Good Show?
It depends on the group. Gerard V's Comedy Hypnotist Show is usually aimed at groups of over 50 people, and the more people who volunteer to come up on stage, the better the show will be. But for smaller events Gerard also does a Small Group Show for groups of 20 - 40.
We have done functions for as few as 9 people.
The main thing for the full-on show is to get volunteers at the start of the show, so more people is always better. For a close group (people who know each other and get on well) we will do shows for a handful or two.
For a public show where people come from all over and don't know each other at all, such as with a pub gig or fund raiser, typically it is better to have over 80 people.
When there are more than about 200 people we can do some flashier gags too, as we will have many more people on stage to work with.
