For the past ten years I've been running a board, similar to this one, dedicated to another singer, and we have this sort of debate all the time. Our lady is exactly the same. She performs a two hour concert and we sit there in the front rows mouthing her chit-chat between songs, we've heard it all so often. We even make bets before the shows on what she will wear (we're usually right).

I think the familiar "patter" thing is a sort of security blanket that performers have, it makes them feel at home on that big stage - no matter which strange town they may be in. They also work on the theory that the vast majority of their audience are first-timers and so the tried and true humour always go down well.

"There’s a lot in the world for us to turn our attention to — helping people, helping animals, and helping animals help people." ... Bernadette Peters, August, 2007
