This episode is all about YOU. That’s right. I opened the mail bag and found a bunch of great questions and some jokes that … well, you wanted fixed.
Join me as we answer the following questions …
- Do you have any tips on writing every day? Specifically, is there a place or web site for submitting jokes?
- When do I know I am ready to try my first open mic? And how much time will I need to have?
- How many times should you try out a joke before you scrap it? Or should you never scrap it and keep trying it again and again?
- Do you have any tips for performing for older and more conservative audiences?
- What happens when you do a joke that normally works and you get no response at all from the audience?
In the fix-a- joke section, I tackle jokes submitted on the topics of …
- Airport layovers
- Underachieving kids
- Chinese babies
- and jobs you hate
I talk about Jerry Seinfeld‘s method for staying focussed on writing and share some other tips and insights for new comedians as well.
If you have beginning comedy questions that need answered just send them in! Email them to SchoolOfLaughs@gmail.com. I will answer them on the podcast or in a blog post.
