How to of the Day
How to Get Started in Standup Comedy
Standup comedy can be a tough world to break into, but it’s also a fun and potentially rewarding hobby or career. If you’d like to become a standup comic—whether amateur or professional—you’ll need to begin by crafting a short set list: at least 5 minutes of jokes. Work on your delivery, comic timing, and onstage persona. You can start out by performing at weekly open-mics, which generally provide a friendly audience. If you’d like to move up in the comedy world from there, you’ll need to start talking to comedy club managers or bookers and find ways to get on a performance schedule.
