Here is a taste:
2 - THE PROVE-IT-TO-ME'S: These folks are all urban dwellers who have seen way too many shows in their lifetimes and have spent at least two hours of their lives in a deep conversation as to who was better in "Gypsy," Patti or Bernadette. It takes them a long time to start laughing at a show (hence, the prove-it-to-me attitude) but once they realize that what they're watching is not crap, they generally warm up and have a good time. As a side note, I've dated many of these people and they happen to be terrible in bed.
4. THE I'M-REALLY-ENJOYING-THIS-BUT-I'M-NOT-GOING-TO-LAUGH-SO-I-CAN-DRIVE-THE-AUTHOR-CRAZY CROWD: Okay, although I love ALL audience members, just as I love ALL critics, this group is not my favorite. They sit and watch and oftentimes they jump to their feet and applaud as soon as the show is over, but they barely react during the show -- just some limp laughing here and there. Then when they leave they say things like, "That was the funniest show I've ever seen." While I am glad that they're happy, I have died a little bit inside.
