There are many different kinds of audience participation stunts which can serve to get the whole audience involved in doing something together. Some kinds serve the purpose of letting people stand and take a stretch by going through motions under the direction of a leader. Others are in the form of a story, with either worthwhile points or just plain fun.
Remember the key word is INVOLVEMENT. The more people who are involved, the more fun it will be for everyone. Stunts add variety, action and fun.
Have the group pair off. On signal, each person is to look his partner in the eye and start buzzing. Continue until one laughs or has to take a breath. Each winner finds another winner until one person is the "Champion Bee."
