Resource: Stand-Up Comedy Forums

February 4, 2011

YAWN.  I had a late one last night as I got a bunch of submissions to festivals and competitions together.  Hot tip, don’t video edit on a 7 year old Acer laptop you bought at Costco for 400 dollars.   

Kevin Chaba mentioned in a comment that he’d like to see some resources pointing toward forums, so that’s what this Friday’s resource will do. Thanks for the feedback, Kevin.

A Special Thing’s Stage Time Forum

By far the best resource regarding stand-up comedy theory I’ve found.  A dedicated group of smart and experienced comics discuss the craft.  When you get bored with the “Stage Time” sub forum, the main area is all about professional stand-up comedy.

Dead Frog Forum

Not as comprehensive as AST, but still some good stuff.  If you’re wondering the name comes from an old joke:

“Analyzing comedy is like dissecting a frog.  You won’t learn much, and you’ll kill it in the process.”

Obviously I frickin’ disagree.

Last Gas Comedy

Smaller forum, but some decent discussions going on.

That’s all for now, I hope to do a more comprehensive list at a later date.  If there’s a forum you know about that isn’t listed, please post the link in the comments section.  Have a good weekend, hustlas.

    RoadComics.com is another good board. Lots of BS, but some good discussions about the craft and business of comedy too.
