Compering– Learn more about it.
A compere is the person who introduces the people taking part in a radio or television show or a live show.
He or she is called as the master of ceremonies, abbreviated as MC or emcee, or the Compere, anchor, announcer, and microphone controller.
He or she is mediator, announcer and coordinator of the event.
‘The Master of Ceremonies’ is an apt description of the anchor as he/ she is the formal host and the felicitator of the event.
There can be a wide range of events – right from highly formal ones like seminars or conferences to informal ones like annual gatherings, fresher’s parties or weddings.
Role of a compere
1) to warm of the crowd and give them an idea about the programme ahead.
2) to glorify the performance of all the performers with his/her appropriate, positive comments and appreciation.
3) to ensure enthusiasm among the viewers with active response in the form of an applause.
4) to make sure that there are smooth transitions between different segments of the programme.
5) to show the skill of stringing or weaving the whole event in one artistic thread.
6) At the same time, if there is any chaos, the compare still has to ensure the smooth movement of the programme.
