While the MC engages with the audience in a more diplomatic way, the DJ should play devil’s advocate. Their role is to offer alternative views that challenge the consensus of the room. They are the ‘agitator’ and, in a sense, represent the views of the ‘black sheep’. After all, where’s the fun if everyone agrees all the time?
The DJ gets to set the mood with sweet tunes and happily stays out of the logistics of running around the room. With that comes the luxury of chiming in whenever they have something funny to say. They may not get as much of a talking role as the MC, but play it right, and you’ll be remember and being funny most of the time!
