SARA NAILED IT WITH HER TIMING COMEDY-WISE
Say what you will about Sara Palin her comedic delivery was excellent during the delivery of her monologue. Her timing was impeccable. No matter if you agree with her politics or not, one has to admit she did a great job displaying some comedic talent.
Having worked with comedians in terms of helping them with their phrasing and timing- something that is very difficult to conquer for any comedian. Palin nailed it every time.
In addition, her tone and pitch were in control and well- modulated during her comedic performance. Her body language and movements were fluid and showed a lot of self- confidence. She had complete control over her audience during her performance.
The best thing a comedian can do to make sure they have the audience on their side is to put themselves down and she did a great job of doing that in her comedic monologue.
There was no doubt she was a bit nervous and guarded in this new experience as she often made a fist- like gesture when she spoke as you can see in the photo above.
When she released her fist like position and relaxed her hands as she delved into her comedic monologue, you can see int he photo above that she became more relaxed and comfortable.
SARA’S SIT DOWN INTERVIEW WITH JAY
During her initial sit down interview with Jay , when she first sat down she appeared to be a little more uncomfortable at first , as determined when her vocal pitch would get a little higher in tone. The pitch of her voice raising seems to be Palin’s vocal pattern when she feels stressed and she may have initially shown signals of stress when first sitting down with Jay.
But it quickly dissipated and she was then well modulated, articulated and well animated. During the interview, she took her journalistic training and turned the tables back on Jay as she brought up his recent controversies in the media.
Jay suddenly took the role of being Sarah’s guest as he made several faces reflecting his disdain at what happened to him. He then got the ball back in his court and began asking the questions.
A NEW POSSIBLE WAY OF INTERVIEWING- A MUTUAL Q AND A FEST
Actually I really liked this dialogue Sara and Jay had as a new form of interviewing people. Usually a guest only answers questions the host asks. The host keeps probing so there is no where else to go but to stay on topic and answer the hosts particular question.
But what if the guest was not only able to answer questions, but could now ask the host as well. It seems like a fairer way to do an interview. I really loved the exchange between Jay and Sara. It became more of a dialogue that is more real.
In this day and age of keeping it real I think that this should be the way to go. I would love for Oprah or Barbara or any one of the women on the View to ask a question and then have the guest in turn ask them one back. I would love to see how they also think about topics they bring up and discuss. It would make for a real and lively discussion and interaction.
So Sara may have inadvertently started a new trend here, with redirecting the questioning towards the host. As I said I liked it and would like to see more celebrities and politicians who are interviewed as questions of their interviewers in return.
