  • Comedy clubs are a great place to start your career. Continue to get a feel of what you can do in order to capture the delight of your audience.

    Make sure that your comedic routines are original and that they have not been lifted from other comedians.Doing stand up comedy is not easy.

    Back in the day when you could get your buddies tolaugh at your jokes, it was ok. Back then, people could easily think of you as a comedian.

    However, when you are performing in front of a live audience, it is a different story.

  • Stand up comedy is a different brand of comedy. There is usually a live audience and the comedian (stand-up comic) will talk to them directly.

    They use a microphone and stand up the entire or at least for most of the show.
    The performances only last a short time and the comedian will tell stories to make people laugh. These are called one-liners and short jokes. They are usually doing the show by themselves (monologue).

    The comedians usually perform their shows in comedy clubs, colleges or theaters. They will do their shows wherever they can. There are some places where open mic shows are held where even if you are not a comedian, you can go ahead and give it a try.

    This is a way that many amateurs start out and make their way to the big time in comedy. You will find that with many beginning performances you will notice the red brick background.

    Doing stand-up is not easy because of how the audience may react to the jokes. The comedian will expect them to laugh; however, that will not always be the case. The comedian has to work hard in order to get the audience to respond in favor.

    If their jokes are not funny, they will get heckled by the audience. They will have to eventually overcome that hurdle. The comedian has to work on making people laugh, or they can hang up their career.

    They are usually wearing many hats once they start in stand-up comedy. The comedian also works as a writer, editor, producer and promoter when they are first starting out. Sometimes it can take several years before they get a following with an audience. It can really be lonely during this time when they are trying to break out of their shell.

  • As a stand up comedian, you will not always do things right. Of course, no one is perfect either.

    At the same time, here are some tips that you can use that will keep you out of harm’s way and keep you working in the stand up comedy business.

    • You should not laugh at your own jokes.

    • During your performance, if there are people in the audience that try to distract you, stay calm and keep trying to perform. Eventually if they keep doing it, they will be asked to leave by management.

    • If you are performing at an open mic night, it should be with performances that are similar to yours. It would be embarrassing to perform on a night where others are doing poetry and other readings not related to comedy.

    • Believe it or not, there are people in the audience that will write down your jokes in hopes of using them. Keep an eye out for people like that while you are
    performing.

    • Don’t overdo a joke. Perform it within the appropriate time frame. It can get old and stale if you keep going on with it and the audience will get irritated.

    • Don’t bash fellow stand up comedians. Keep your opinions to yourself. If you
    have something to share, allow them to ask you. If they don’t, then don’t push
    the issue. This will not get you any love from your peers.

    • Being offensive is a no-no. You are there to make them laugh. They don’t want
    to hear about things that are vile and get them upset.

    • Express yourself in a way that people would appreciate it. Just be yourself when you do it.

    • Don’t talk so loud where you can bust the eardrums of the people in the audience.

    Keep the volume to an acceptable level. Tone your voice down and adjust the
    microphone if you have to.

    • During your performance, keep a good attitude, no matter what. Even when the audience doesn’t laugh at your jokes, keep a smile on your face.
