GUEST,Albie Compering/ MCing at a folk club (30) Compering/ MCing at a folk club 29 Sep 06


Does anybody have a compere or MC at their folk club?

What sort of behaviour is expected of them?

Do they dominate the compering or is the task shared?

At a club I sometimes go to in east london, the bloke who comperes is very unprofessional. The other night he was waffling on about a load of bollox into the microphone, with his mouth full of food. Other members of this club say that they would like to have a go at compering, but this particular idiot throw's a wobbly if anybody even suggests that he stand down for one night. The thing is he wastes so much time talking total shit, that not every acts gets on!

What are other peoples view on this?
