In this episode we talk about finding your comedic voice, hecklers & agents. The questions come from students of mine in Nashville, TN after a recent writing class.
Finding your comedic voice is like finding and ATM that prints money without asking for your PIN number. It is the sweetest piece of information you will never have as a comedian. Your comedic voice is that little accent that goes on all of your material. The comedic voice is your brand, style and uniqueness all rolled into one. When will you find your comedic voice? It all depends. The more times you get on stage the better chance you will have to discover it. Just doing a couple of open mics a month probably won’t lead to any incredible discoveries.
It’s often been said that it can take about 7 years of constant, consistent and relentless stage time to find that golden nugget. Do you have the patience and drive to push through? Will you have the same drive and recognition a few years later to notice that your voice has changed a little? Can you go through that process again?
We talk about it here on the School Of Laughs podcast episode number 163.
