“I loved to make people laugh in high school, and then I found I love being on a stage in front of people.” -Steve Martin
If you know and love the thrill of getting a laugh or holding the attention of others, whether on a stage or at a dinner party, you are a Performer. Performers, both amateur and professional, don’t just see a fellow human being when they look at you. They see an audience.
Sometimes they attain an audience with talent and skill, as many musicians and actors do after years of training, which puts them in the category of virtuosic. Other times they can get attention with the right story, gimmick or joke. In every case, these are the people who make the world a more interesting and amusing place for the rest of us.
