„Your audience gives you everything you need. They tell you. There is no director who can direct you like an audience.“

—  Fanny Brice American actress, singer and comedian 1891 - 1951
Context: Your audience gives you everything you need. They tell you. There is no director who can direct you like an audience. You step out on the stage and you can feel it is a nervous audience. So you calm them down. I come out before an audience and maybe my house burned down an hour ago, maybe my husband stayed out all night, but I stand there. I'm still. I don't move. I wait for the introduction. Maybe I cough. Maybe I touch myself. But before I do anything, I got them with me, right there in my hand and comfortable. That's my job, to make them comfortable, because if they wanted to be nervous they could have stayed home and added up their bills. As quoted in The Fabulous Fanny : The Story of Fanny Brice (1953) by Norman Katkov, p. 71
