Bravo [for poetry recitation?]


Senior Member
Hello all
When a poet recite poetry in the stage and the audience don't like his poetry they shout "boo boo" what does the audience shout when they like the poetry, do they shout "bravo bravo" ?

Give me best alternatives please

    When a poet recites poetry onstage, and the audience doesn't like his or her poetry, usually they just look bored and leave. When they do like it, they usually clap. You are describing a much livelier scene than we are used to seeing. However, theoretically, shouts of "bravo" in addition to applause are possible. I can't think of anything else to shout, except some general affirmative like "yeah." You must have great poetry or spoken-word sessions in Islamabad.
