As Steve Lacy was coughing and complaining about the stage smoke his fans were singing along to his music seemingly oblivious to what was going on. If there was any bright side to the moment it would be that the crowd knew all the words to his music, which proves they are true fans.
What is Theatrical Stage Smoke Made Of?
In some cases theatrical stage smoke is made of pure water vapor. However, it can also be made from liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide.

It’s not clear what type of stage smoke Steve Lacy choked on in the video below, but considering how he was coughing it doesn’t seem like it was just water vapor, but it’s possible.
