Many of you either during chat sessions, personal encounters or fb msgs have asked me the following questions! I think its time i answer them with a NO or YES ! Let's do this! :)
1. Do you get your material from online?
Ans : NO! We have to write our own material. You can be inspired by an idea but not copy a joke. That's theft.
2. Do you take jokes from each other ?
Ans : NO! and YES! If someone has helped us complete a joke and he/she says : " It is your joke!"...It is your joke. Stand-up comedians help each other at some point during comedic discussions.
3. Has it ever occurred that the crowd has been entirely silent during your comedy set?
Ans : YES! Sometimes it happens when you don't connect with the audience and they don't find you funny..on days like these.. just got to learn and move forward!
4. Can anybody do stand-up Comedy?
Ans : YES and NO. If you're meant for it...it will happen. Prepare 3 mins worth of material and come forward..after the first time if you are still inspired to do it.. its for you!
5. Have you ever been heckled?
Ans : YES! Once or twice by some drunk guys but you have to get those tricks ready to answer back! The truth is you have a louder voice! You have a mic - they don't. A smart comeback and you win the audience over even stronger.
Keep your questions coming folks and I will try to answer them... and if i cant...i will get some professionals to answer them for you!
