Here is the statement..

We did a show at the party and hardly anyone came. Great show great place but poor audience.

What does poor audience mean here? Thaks.

The phrase poor audience on its own can mean a few things: an unresponsive audience, a small audience, or (if taken literally) an audience of people without much money.

In this case, the meaning is made clear from the first sentence:

We did a show at the party and hardly anyone came. Great show great place but poor audience.

So, few people showed up. Depending on the nature of the show and how it was funded, that can either be just disappointing or it could result in less money being made.
