Being A Waiter Gives You Amazing Insight In Being A Singing Waiter
“How?” You ask…Well, a singing waiter poses as a waiter. And we like to think being a method actor is a great approach in this instance. “Being, is”. Be a waiter and a singer, and you are by definition, a “Singing Waiter”. Having experience in how people are in a banquet or party setting will help you immensely when you are tasked to “set up” the show by hoaxing as a waiter. You have to be believable, know how to pour water, how to set and clear plates, etc. Know the lingo and you’ll be respected by the staff that you are trying to look and pose like. Life just got a lot easier.
Improv will save your backside!
Yes, you’ve learned your parts and you’re ready to sing your little heart out. But, what makes this type of entertainment fun and scary all at the same time is that the unexpected probably will happen. And it won’t happen the way you might think. Having those improvisational skills as an entertainer, not just as a singing waiter, but as a career entertainer will serve you well Jedi!
