Comment on Learn Comedy from the best comedy teacher in L.A! by Dwayne L Gill http://www.standupcomedyclinic.com/comment-page-1/#comment-1146 Fri, 15 Aug 2014 18:44:02 +0000 http://www.standupcomedyclinic.com/?page_id=683#comment-1146 I just signed up for the weekend workshop in Sep! Excited. My biggest obstacles when it comes to writing are not going deep enough on premises I find funny. If I could learn one thing it would be what do TV bookers mean when they say they want the comedian to have a strong point of view?

But Robin’s tragic loss teaches us no matter how successful society sees us, true clinical depression won’t allow you to recognize it in your own mind. No tag lines here, but like the song “Rock & Roll Heaven” ….if there’s a comedy club in heaven, you know they have a hell of a lineup every night…Williams, Winters, Carlin, Pryor, Dangerfield, Bruce, Mac, Kinison….

Why? You nailed it; he was hope. My wife met him twice (United Airlines flight attendant) I asked her what her impressions of him were? She said there was a sadness in his eyes, if you look at his interviews you will see that as well. She said that he was a very quiet, introspective, kind, considerate, polite, signing autographs while studying his script. We mortals all get depressed and ache for love and acceptance. In a heartbeat the loneliness can overrule rationale. Tens of millions of us would have done anything to help Robin instead he couldn’t cope and left us missing him. Lesson: be sensitive and ask someone how they are doing!

I think that all the tears surrendered upon his passing would fill Lake Tahoe or at least a medium sized spa. It’s funny I cried at his passing and at one of his mentors- Jonathon Winters passing they both shared a little something I could relate to.

I have enjoyed reading the ways that he spread wisdom and joy. There are so many lessons in this loss and ‘save your life’ is a big one. Go for the gold and spread around joy on then entire journey.

Your philosophical lifestyle of being kind to your fellow artists is not only a key to your own success, but one of the keys to having a happy life.

I always considered Robin Williams to be the Eddie Van Halen of comedy.
“Rock the stage, and have a ball doing it.”

As Jerry Corley says, let’s make sure we take care of each other.

My friend Chris was part of it. I think you’re right on about the tragedy of his end. I think we all wish we could have walked in minutes before and talked him down. Somehow no one was there to do that for him even though everyone would have been.

Comment on Top 3 Things You Should Be Doing As a Writer Right Now by Joe Toplyn http://www.standupcomedyclinic.com/4760/top-3-things-you-should-be-doing-as-a-writer-right-now/comment-page-1/#comment-1134 Wed, 13 Aug 2014 00:13:33 +0000 http://www.standupcomedyclinic.com/?p=4760#comment-1134 Thanks for the mention, Jerry. You’re absolutely right: taking a class on comedy writing for late-night TV is a terrific way to learn the specific writing techniques you must master to break into that specialized TV genre. But even a writer who isn’t assembling a late-night packet can benefit from learning proven methods for writing short-form comedy like topical monologue jokes.

If attending a class isn’t possible, writers can take your online course or buy my book “Comedy Writing for Late-Night TV.” The idea is to not waste your time figuring out for yourself how to write tight, killer material and instead let comedy professionals help you get down that learning curve pronto.
