Get The Questions You Need Answered NOW About How To Succeed As A Comedian

How much further could you go in reaching your stand-up comedy dreams and goals given the right information?

From the desk of:
Steve Roye
Pro Comedian Trainer & Consultant


Dear Fellow (or Future) Comedian,

I know from my own experience that there is no bigger thrill on the planet than to make an audience laugh and laugh hard. It’s electrifying!

There are few things that can even come close to the acceptance, appreciation and instant gratification that you can experience from being completely responsible for entertaining a group of people by creating huge laughter.

But I also know that if you are seriously considering getting involved in stand-up comedy or you’ve been doing it already…

question-mrk1Then the chances are very good that you have important questions that you need answered right now. Important questions like:

What do I talk about on stage?

How do I get started developing a comedy act?

How can I easily remember my comedy material?

How can I get rid of nervousness before I get on stage?

How can I improve my delivery?

If you have already been involved in stand-up comedy for awhile, you may also have important questions like:

How can I make my comedy material funnier?

How can I add more punchlines to my comedy material?

How do I come up with better jokes?

How can I improve my timing?

How do I handle hecklers?

The reason that I am confident that you may have these questions (and many others) is very simple…

Most so-called stand-up comedy “experts” don’t know how to answer most of your questions effectively to help you get results you want.

I know from first hand experience that the chances are very good that you may have already suffered through at least one book on stand-up comedy (probably more) or you may have taken a workshop or two to try to get the answers to the questions that you still have.

One of the reasons that you may continue to have important, unanswered questions about stand-up comedy is because much of the information that is distributed by the established “experts” is INACCURATE, OUT-DATED or NOT ACTIONABLE.

Let me explain what I mean by that…

Common Stand-up Comedy Myths

Here are just a few examples of some common stand-up comedy myths circulated by some of the more recognized stand-up comedy “experts” out there today:

Myth #1: The primary means of producing comedy material and making it funny is by using “joke formulas.”

facts-myths6Fact: Knowing “joke formulas” WON’T help to make anyone funny on stage as a comedian. As a matter of fact, they are all but worthless for producing stand-up comedy material that will actually work and here’s why:

ANYONE can pick the horse that won after the race is over. ANYONE can pick the team that won the game after the game is over. None of this sort of “after-the-fact” information is any help whatsoever in showing someone how to pick a winning horse or team before the event has already happened.

Joke formulas are nothing more than an “after-the-fact” identification of similar “techniques” used in stand-up comedy routines by a variety of comedians.

While that may be great for identification purposes, it does NOTHING to help a someone produce their own unique stand-up comedy material relative to who they are, how they talk, the expressions they use, etc.

Myth #2: Jokes are developed one at a time on paper. The more jokes you write, the more “good” ones you will “find.”

Fact: This whole notion of working on single jokes, one at a time and then attempting to “connect” them in some meaningful way that will generate big laughs is a very old, worn out and largely ineffective concept.

When I say old, I’m talking 30 to 50 years old (even older if you go back to Vaudeville times when they basically used the same methodology).

Jokes written on paper may “read” funny but can — and will — flop on stage. Why?

First of all, we “write” differently than we actually talk. It’s a completely different form of communication than “writing” in the literary sense.

Secondly, an audience is not going to “read” your act — they are going to experience it, the way you deliver it to them.

Trying to “write” funny jokes from thin air, “stringing” them together and expecting big laughs on stage is much like trying to eat soup with a toothpick.

But you DON’T have to be a great “joke writer” to develop and deliver super funny stand-up comedy material for the stage.

Myth #3: If you tell a story, you are not doing stand-up. Stories are not jokes and they don’t work on the stand-up comedy stage.

Fact: One of the most prolific stand-up comedy “experts” continues to spread this sort of mythical nonsense year after year.

facts-myths6Unfortunately, this “expert” has failed to recognize that some of the most successful comedians, including Bill Cosby, Jeff Foxworthy, Ellen DeGeneres, Tim Allen, Eddie Izzard, Bill Engvall, Ron White, Larry The Cable Guy (just to mention a very few) all use a conversational stand-up comedy style that involves “story telling”.

“Stories” allow you to stay on a single topic longer. Because the audience already knows what your “story” or topic is about, you automatically use less words as you continue to tell your “story”.

Less set-up words and set-up lines equate to more frequent punchlines and allows you to quickly gain the momentum you need to “get on a roll”.

Let me make it clear as a bell that you ABSOLUTELY can tell stories as a stand-up comedian, provided they are properly structured to get a minimum of 4-6 laughs per minute.

Myth #4: Who you are on stage is some sort of other character – it’s not really you.

Fact: You can be yourself on stage and command huge laughs in the process.

If you have a sense of humor that has made people laugh consistently in everyday life — for years — you are already your own best character.

You just need the tools and the knowledge to capture your own unique sense of humor and condense it for the stand-up comedy stage.

Myth #5: Success in stand-up is largely dependent on having a unique or original look, hook, persona, character, presence, point of view, or anything thing else that will make you stand out from the rest of the comedians.

Fact: If you are able to kill an audience on stage consistently, you are already in the top 5% of all comedians anywhere — without having to wear a Donald Duck suit to try to “stand out” from the other comedians.

It is also interesting to note that virtually every stand-up comedy “guru” who is willing to tell you that you need to become a “character” or get a “hook” can’t even begin to tell you HOW to do it.

Seems awfully fishy to me. You shouldn’t have to somehow develop some sort of mysterious “hook” if nobody can actually give you so much as a hint on how to do it.

Myth #6: A person can “learn” to become funny even if they are not that funny in everyday life.

Fact: Unless an unfunny person is able to get brain transplant surgery, there is not a single book, course or technique (including anything I have to offer in the way of stand-up comedy education or advice) that can make anyone instantly “funny” or somehow “funnier” than they really are.

This is primarily a marketing ploy used by so-called stand-up comedy “experts” to sell books and courses to people who want to become stand-up comedians, but really don’t have what it takes to entertain an audience.

Fortunately most people who want to take a shot at stand-up comedy have all the comedy talent they need to do well on stage if they know how to use it.

Myth #7: It takes many years to become a funny comedian on stage.

Fact: If you are writing one joke at a time and trying to find that “special” character you think you need to be, then the answer is — yes, it can certainly take you years, possibly decades before you ever experience the big laughs on stage.

facts-myths6At the beginning of your comedy career, stage time is a rare commodity. You need to know how to use every single performing opportunity you get to improve your performance for every show.

But it certainly doesn’t have to take years to get good on the comedy stage — you can literally do it in weeks or months if you are armed with the right information, the right tools and some real stand-up comedy secrets that actually work.

There is not a single book or course on the planet that can give you years of actual stage experience, which is critical to your success as a comedian.

But there are many things you can do to drastically shorten the time it takes to get the results you want when you are on stage — again, if you actually know what you are doing.

But don’t take my word for it…

Verify What I Am Telling You For Yourself

reviewCheck out what all the so-called comedy ” gurus” have to say for yourself FIRST, before you try anything I have to offer. See if you can make their “secrets” and techniques work for you.

I honestly wish you the best of luck. I’ve got a Masters Degree and I couldn’t figure out how to make their methods work for me. Not only that…

I spent literally hundreds of dollars on every stand-up comedy book and workshop I could get my hands on in the process when I first started out.

But I can say this with great confidence:

By the time you do get through everyone else’s stuff and find out that what they have to offer won’t work you, you may have already had your fill of the typical “blind trial and error” process most comedians end up using to FAIL on stage.

I know from first hand experience having almost quit myself after 9 months of getting nowhere fast with my stand-up comedy.

As hard as I tried, I couldn’t make the conventional stand-up comedy “expert” information work for me on stage, even though I could make a classroom full of people laugh so hard it would disturb other classes.

This prompted me to develop a system over a decade ago for producing, refining and delivering stand-up comedy material that is now used by literally thousands of comedians around the world today.

If you have been involved in stand-up comedy anytime at all, you may have even heard of it — it’s called the Killer Stand-up Comedy System that is provided in an extensive and detailed online course.

But I also need to let you know…

I never set out with a goal to become a stand-up comedy “expert” or teacher, much less one who is known all over the planet.

All I was trying to do was to get the biggest laughs on stage that I possibly could. When I did kill the audience consistently, comedians started seeking me out for my secrets, techniques and methods.

At this point, you are probably wondering…

P.S. Anyone can “wing it” or try using the “conventional”, out-of-date stand-up comedy information that most comedians work with in order to perform poorly on the stand-up comedy stage and move at a snail’s pace when it comes to becoming a pro comedian.

You need only attend ANY comedy open mic to see for yourself exactly what I am talking about.

But if your goal is to become a professional comedian, you want to significantly improve your chances of stand-up comedy success and you want to have a competitive edge over other comedians, I hope you seriously consider becoming a Comedy Pro Member. :-)
