Yo, when I’m on the mic I just kick it freestyle:

Yo my name is GladysMensch and I’m the ladies choice
Take ‘em on an odyssey like I was James Joyce
Catch ‘em when they start to swoon from my golden voice
Cause you’re a Chevy Vega and I’m a Rolls Royce

boom-boom Bam, ba-boom-ba Bam, wickie-wickie

Just riff on Ed Sullivan and you’ll ace it, Jake. ;-)

I have MC’d a number of events. I always have a few funny stories to kill time as needed. I keep a few note cards with one or two words to remind me of each story so I don’t forget if I get nervous or things are running too long. The number and length of stories and quips is based on the length and type of event. I also use one of the note cards to mark down any special announcements the sponsor wants me to make in the course of the production.

Thank you @Kayak8. What kind of events have you MC’d?

@wundayatta Sorry to be so slow to respond—modem has been out all week. I have MC’d awards programs, various concerts, music festival type gigs, etc.
