A Note From Jerry
In my experiences on the road, in the studio, in writer’s rooms and in meetings with comedy writing legends, I’ve collected and refined joke techniques, comedy formulas and performance techniques and have laid them out in a way that allows the beginner to understand the science behind the art and for the experienced writer or comedian to add to his or her experience and heighten the response received from an audience. My sole goal is to provide the comedian or comedy writer with all the tools they need to truly command their ability to write jokes and comedy routines on anything they want, whenever they desire.
There are few things in my life I am more passionate about than comedy. I try to share this with all my students in my 8-week comedy classes, weekend comedy seminars and private coaching sessions (in person or via Skype). The process works! Here is an example going back 20 years. Here is my first television appearance on A&E’s An Evening at the Improv which I booked after my very first audition for Bud Friedman, owner of the world-famous “Improvisation.”
