It’s easier to make 100 people laugh than six.

An audience has momentum. If one person laughs, it is more likely that a second person will laugh. If one person cries, it becomes more likely a second person will cry. It’s just a quirk of human nature. The larger the audience, the higher the likelihood of building momentum because it will be likelier that at least one person will laugh. So, it’s easier to get a larger audience reacting than a smaller one. That means you want to perform in front of larger audiences to get more feedback on what within your poetry and performance works. That’s why you need to find ways to get in front of other people’s audiences.
