This week I sit and talk with the creative and hilarious Clayburn Cox. Clayburn is based in Auburn, AL where he teaches Photoshop to high school students. Those students torture him with those very skills. Clayburn and I first met in 2008 at a Christian Comedy Association conference in Murfreesboro TN. That conference introduced Clay and myself to a new group of comedians that would eventually become our friends.
Clayburn Cox show notes:
Specifically, we talk about …
- Trying out jokes and stories on his students
- Balancing work, family and comedy
- The Toothbrush Story
- Putting on your own shows in a smaller town
- His new love for hecklers
- The intricacies of the craft of stand up comedy
- One liners and stories
- How Clayburn develops stories
- The group mentality of a comedy club audience
- Overcoming a gap between stage and the audience
- Seeing his humor in his children
- The potential for a family-filled comedy show
- Using a “strum stick” to break up the performance
- His DVD recording in Auburn
- The next CD project coming soon
