At my last show I started doing the thing where I set a timer for 5 mins and they get a ticket for asking a question about my job- I really think this will help generate interest. At least it builds in a chance for me to talk about it. When do you think is a good time in your shows to talk about your story? At the beginning? I will start including that.
