Resource: Stand-Up Comedy Forums
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.
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.
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.
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.
