I have recently come into producing professional recording of stand-up comedy.
When it comes to capturing audio, I use two sources.
1) a line directly off the mic to get the performer
2) a mic in the room to get the audience
The problem is that the source capturing the audience gets a lot of the performer as well which sounds bad.
The performer's audio should be from the microphone line only.
How would one capture the audience without getting the sound of the performer from that source?
How is the sound captured on professional stand-up comedy shows?
