Drink microphone

For the comedian who walks a lot

Stand up comedians do a lot of walking around the stage, but when they want to get a drink they need to go all the way back to their glass from wherever it is they left it. I propose a microphone, which is hollow, and has a hole down through the middle of the head into the glass underneath. The electronics of the microphone will be stored either around, or at the bottom of the glass, and will not affect the sound quality.

The best microphone to accompany HDTV video camera in a Natural setting. [mensmaximus, Jan 12 2005]

       Kinda of misses the point of that glass of water. Often it’s an excuse just to walk over there, to add a beat, change the tempo, etc.

       Kariokiest would probably love this as well. (And no, I don't know how to spell kariokiest, I just took a guess.)

       Baked. There is a hollow microphone already, infact it's the best microphone. See link and welcome.

       baked in Mad Magazine several decades ago, in which one issue had a parody of George Carlin (if that could indeed be called a parody) where, onstage, he had a mic with a tube in it that delivered alcohol to him unbeknownst to the audience (or so he thought). Punchline?

       Swish a glass of water around next to your ear. Now imagine that amplified through a PA system. Even so, it's still too good an idea to bone.
