Audience Input

Questions about life problems. 

Description

All three actors stand on stage. The host asks the audience for any problems they may have that need solved. Once a problem is selected, each actor will offer their advice. Actor 1 offers good advice, a solution that might solve the problem with relatively no harm done. Actor 2 offers bad advice, that would certainly solve the problem but might cause unintended consequences. Finally actor 3 offers ugly advice which may not solve the problem but would in fact create a new set of problems.

 

Example: How can I avoid getting a parking ticket?

Good advice: You should use the electronic app to pay your parking then set a reminder for when the time expires to pay again.

Bad advice: If you see a parking attendant you should threaten them with bodily harm should they choose to even bother writing a ticket.

 

Ugly advice: You should remove your license plates and swap them with someone who has a parking permit. Then they get the ticket instead of you. Sucker!
