Would it make you upset if you went up on stage and people would smile/laugh as you talked even if you weren't saying anything funny?

---

I'm just wondering. It would make me upset, because I would feel like I am being mocked. I know that I speak in a particular manner that is pretty autistic-like, and it doesn't make me happy if people find it funny. There's a story that goes along with this question, but I will not post it here as it's about someone else and they might very well be a member on this forum. You can feel free to PM me if you're really interested in the details.

Yeah, I would love that, because it would then give me more confidence to say something that actually WAS funny. If that kept happening, I wouldn't like it. But sometimes if I'm on stage, I'll make faces, and that's good enough to get people to laugh. The AS face never fails...and it's my trump card. If I can't think of anything, I make that face, and I tell the audience it's my mad cow that is keeping me silent.

I would be upset since I would have no idea why they were laughing or how to react.

If it is clearly not funny and couldn't possibly be interpreted as funny yes.

Nice one. :lol:
Nothing like that has happened, though.

Something like that happened to me, and I just got really embarrassed. :oops:
