Laughter is the best medicine life offers and John Maucere came to bring exactly that. The C.A.D. organization has lived on for a century and Maucere enjoyed being part of C.A.D.’s history by hosting The John Maucere Show at the Hank Klopping Theater recently at the 50th Biennial Conference in Fremont, CA on August 12, 2011. Not only laughter but an electrifying presence on stage was what actor Maucere wanted to deliver in bringing a rush of anticipation to the audience. Once you’re in the audience, the anticipation is, “will the spotlight be on you?” That brand of entertainment brought raving reviews from those in the audience, for certain that will ignite some brainstorming backstage. The presence was not felt only on stage, but throughout the C.A.D. conference.
Brenda Lyons, CUPE’D’s Executive Director (Cultivating Unity Pride and Empowerment of the Deaf) – “I look for energy from the very onset of any performer. John’s entrance was contagious filling us with great anticipation, and his rendition of different cultures’ way of speaking (mouthing) was absolutely hilarious! I am a huge fan of mixing performance with video material. It brings the message into focus by doing a good job with a healthy mixture of media: sounds, stills, and video clips. I don’t think there is a dry eye in the audience from all of us laughing so hard.”
Stan Smith, former teacher at California School for the Deaf (C.S.D.F.) – “This show is right on target with their improvisational style, John Maucere seemed to have clips already prepared (like the picture of car on C.S.D.F. campus), that was creatively exhibiting their talent in entertaining. He is really witty delivering clever anecdotes on Deaf culture, with irony style. Apparently, in customizing the show script, they inserted some last-minute additions adding more ooze to the audience.”
Ralph Singleton, C.A.D. President – “John is so audience-friendly. He makes a point of acknowledging his audience by picking out people he knows and joking about them, he joked about N.A.D.’s (National Association of the Deaf) President Howard Rosenblum, N.C.O.D.’s CEO (National Center on Deafness) Dr. Rosen Roz, and whoever else was in the audience. I loved how he tried to entice the audience to guess what the sound vibrated like on one clip which turned out to be falling cans hitting the surface. He completely fooled the audience!”
Michelle Ottinger, Sprint representative and local Deaf coffee chat host – “I sensed John has a great rapport with the audiences everywhere he goes and I loved feeling the beat of the music while he was on stage, along with other sound effects during the show.”
Dr. Henry “Hank” Klopping, recently-retired Superintendent of C.S.D.F. -“He was uncanny incorporating the audience into the show, we were a part of the show as much he was. When he started the jokes, electric currents filled the house.”
