The Art of Stand Up
As part of my Comedy Classes series, I am including a post that was shared with me from another student. This is a segment from the BBC’s series on The Art of Stand Up (also available on YouTube and the BBC website). It features interviews with many popular comedians from the U.K. and the U.S.

One of the things I highly recommend is to listen to other successful comedians as much as possible. There’s so much to learn and their experiences can help us learn to avoid the mistakes they may have made and to be inspired by their commitment to the craft. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have.

My favorite quote from this video: “It actually is like being able to fly…” Awesome!

What’s your favorite comedy quote?

      I think it may have been removed. I will try to get another copy up. Well worth a look.
