018 TIME TO WRITE JOKES (podcast)

online comedy classes

Working in new jokes, fighting perfectionism, post performance evaluation, and bouncing back from a joke when no one laughs – this episode is all about comedy writing!

We talk exclusively about the comedy writing process in this podcast. Beginners and pros all deal with the same obstacles. How you approach them and move on will help separate you from the others. You'll discover how to create, tweak and evaluate your set though some proven comedy writing tips.

A majority or these questions were collected from a listener and his fellow comics in New Zealand (thanks Mark!). If you think it is time to write jokes, then download and play this episode right away.

If you have yet to even write your first joke, you may find this blogpost to be helpful.
