Totally seconding what has already been said.
I have judged performances where so much was said with so few words. I've also judged performnces with lots of witty banter. I enjoyed the ones that gave no apologies for what they were the most
Even though we get a bit of a rowdy audience of casual attendees these are the performances that go down best with an audience too
In theatrical circles it's called being present, or having energy. It's mainly about focus and commitment to what you have started
You can hve that regardless of the genre
