What do you think of MC's that talk trying to gain more cheers from the crowd, during the dancers performance?

It depends. Generally I could do without it, since I want to focus on the performer and not the MC; but some MCs make it brilliant and energizing and funny; and some audiences really respond to it. So in theory I don't like it, but in action I've seen it both succeed and fail.

Ask me anything about Burlesque!

Of all the shows I've seen I've only experienced this once. I hated it. Totally distracting.

And, in my opinion, performers who directly ask for audience reaction (such as by cupping her hand behind her ear) are just as bad.
