055 SHOWCASE SET RESULTS (podcast)

school of laughs

In episode 052 we discussed strategies for picking your material for different types of showcase sets. The funniest? The most unique? The most jam packed set of jokes? Everyone approaches it differently. In this episode, we listen back to a showcase set and analyze what went right, wrong and what changes were made on the fly to make it flow best.

Joining me on this episode is Jonnie W., who you may remember from episode 035. Jonnie was at the showcase and had a good look at the set live. It was unique, for sure. Not exactly your typical comedy club set up. We talk about:

  • Showroom dynamics
  • Crowd lighting
  • My invasive dyslexia
  • Calling audibles
  • Voice choices
  • Winning over a crowd
  • Crowd expectations
  • Jokes you drop on purpose
  • Call backs
  • Rule of threes
  • Misdirection

and a lot, lot more.

  • Fix a Joke

In the new year (which starts for us on July 4) we want to help as many comics as possible. If you have a short joke (100 words or less) that you would like some feedback on please send it in! You can email the joke written out or send us an audio clip, or even a link to a YouTube video. We will get it on the show and get feedback for you, give out your web site and / or twitter handle to help you get your name out there. Our show is PG so please take that into consideration when selecting a joke.
