Well I dont know the technical name for them, but the mics that go over your ear and have the tube that comes around (like the ones singers use in concerts to make it look like they're actually singing), Oye! They shouldn't be used in plays it looks horrid.

Haha, Countrymen. We use them...or rather my high school uses them (I'm graduated!! What?!!). I never got that either. We "attempted" to cover them with electrical tape and makeup, but it always drives me NUTS when I see them! They're better than a lot of the alternatives, but ugh!

Some people put them through the actor's hair, though, so that it just pokes out at the forehead, where some people have a widow's peak. That you can barely see, and I looovve that.

It depends on what type you are talking about. It you are refering to the big, black boom mics like Madonna and Britney Spears used several years ago, I couldn't agree more. They are fairly cheap and most do have a good sound, but they take away from the show.

Try fertilizing it with $20 bills...that usually does the trick. If you really want it to grow quickly, start with$50 and \$100's.
