If you were asked to perform in a talent show tomorrow, what would your act be?
my act would be a dance solo to a very moving song that would stir emotion. A routine that is very strong and revealing with a story to tell. A performance that would leave the audience in tears.
Unfair question for me. I would probably disqualify myself but volunteer to perform if they wanted me to. Have my own entertainment business and perform stage shows, walk around and themed shows either as a clown or a magician.
The difference is the clown has more comedy and elementary type tricks. The magician still has comedy but also includes some more higher caliber serious magic.
So this question is really not as fair for me as some of the other readers. With that said you understand why I would disqualify myself from the contest but volunteer as a guest performer.
Something goofy....my mom used to sing us a song about an ant who thought he could move a rubber tree plant...I would make an ant costume and construct some crazy big rubber tree and sing the song while acting it out....something to make people laugh, with a message!
I don't have any performing skills like singing, dancing, magic etc. But in my dreams, I see myself doing stand-up comedy. As it happens :-), I just posted a Hub in that vein, so if I did have a go in 'a talent show tomorrow', this is the two-minute act about the perils of growing old, that I'd hope to bring the house down with. (Well, at least raise a few laughs...)
Two minutes is important, because when I wrote it, I imagined myself delivering it onstage, and I figured that would give me time to get up, get it done, and get off, before the beercans started flying. Also makes for a mercifully short read as a Hub. But feel free to throw any metaphorical beercans at me in the comments section!

Since I have an absolutely crippling case of stage-phobia, I guess the best I could offer would be to impress the audience with my amazingly fast typing skill. I'd be able to just pull up a desk chair (or maybe a piano bench) and type up a storm without ever having to face the reality of where I was.
Other than that, I pretty much believe in keeping any talents I may have a secret, and taking them to the grave with me. (lol)
I would play my guitar. I'm not the best but considering it would be so last minute, I would have to fall back on it!
dance..i dont know, singing i'm not up to.....so, instant poetry- yes perhaps i can do!
I would stall until the next person came up because I have zero talents.
Years ago, I could've danced or done gymnastics. 4 kids, 20+ years later, no one really wants to see me attempt either of those. So, I suppose I could show off my amazing Mom skillz. Juggling kids, refereeing arguments, frying bacon, while packing a lunch, while doing a load of laundry, while emailing for work, while answering the phone, while reciting 4th grade spelling words with my youngest son. You know... typical Wednesday morning stuff.
I would do a striptease act from the show "Gypsy Rose" and have a woman dressed up like Rosalind Russell come out and scream at me for only taking one glove off. You would have to see the movie to know what I'm talking about here. I just went old school on you. lol

What type of volunteer work do you perform?I am a current member of Project Linus that gives children in need a security blank which is homemade.

If they asked for volunteers to go, on a one way space trip to a new planet, would you volunteer?To reach another planet, it would take so long that families may be sent, so that, even though the parents may die of old...
