Comedians can become superstars when they work through a few simple tips to hone their craft and become the most valuable comedian on the planet.
If you’re a fan of standup, you’ll want to know how to learn what it takes to perform the stuff.
And it’s really not that complicated.
The difference is that you can learn from each other.
We spoke with the likes of Jeff Allen, Jeff Garlin, and Jeff Daniels, and asked them about how to become the best comedian on Earth, in an effort to inspire and inspire others.
And now, the first in a series of articles about how comedians can become the greatest on earth, as well as what you need to know about the job of being a standup comic, is from Jeff Allen:You’ve gotta be a pro at it, but if you’re not, you’re gonna be in trouble.
If you’re like me, I started out doing it because I wanted to be a comic.
So you have to be in a certain place in your mind, and then you gotta go out there and do it.
And that’s where you gotta have the right mindset and the right equipment, and the way to do that is to learn and practice.
If you go back to my first comic act, I remember when I first came to L.A. I went to the studio, and they asked me, “Who do you think is gonna win?”
And I said, “Me.”
They said, [laughs] “That’s gonna be it,” and they told me that.
They had me do a comedy routine and it was the funniest thing I’d ever done, so I went in and did the same thing, and it turned out to be the funnest thing I’ve ever done.
I thought I was gonna be the next Eddie Murphy.
And I got the job and I’ve been doing standup ever since.
I think it’s hard to find a place in the world where there is a sense of humor and a sense that the work is not over.
The job is the best thing that you’re going to do, but I think a lot of it has to do with the way you do it, the way that you learn.
I learned the most from watching myself, because I would see myself in the show, and I would watch myself do the comedy and I think I was just so good that I learned that.
And now I’m just like, “Oh, I know I can do this!”
The one thing that I’m most proud of is the way I’m able to find different ways to perform and have a lot more energy.
I’m the opposite of Eddie Murphy: I’m a lot less energetic.
It’s easier to be really good at something, because you don’t have to do it all the time.
You can find new ways to do the thing, like, I can make up my own songs.
And then I can get up and do a new set and just go, “I got a bunch of new songs for the show tonight!”
I’m always trying to do something different, and my songs are really cool.
I always get so excited to get to write a song.
And when I get to, I go, [Laughs] “Oh my God, I got it!
I got a song!
I’m writing a song!”
So it’s a fun, different way of doing things, and people like that, people that I like to write for, that are able to just come out and perform, that’s really the key.
You don’t know what you’re doing.
And you know what I mean?
If you have the experience of someone like Eddie Murphy, it’s not like you know how he did it.
I’ve learned so much from him.
I mean, he had that whole thing about how he was just going out and doing things and people were just like: “Well, what did he do?
What did he say?”
I can say the same stuff.
I know it.
I know that when I do my standup routine, it always feels really different than when I’m doing it on the stage.
When I do the standup act, it feels like I’m coming off the stage, so it’s different.
But when I walk onstage, I’m feeling really good and I’m kind of ready to go.
I don’t always go into the studio to rehearse the routine, because it’s so different than just sitting in front of a microphone.
When you’re in front, there’s nothing to do.
I want to be able to feel like I have this freedom to just be able, to just improvise, to be completely free and open and just do whatever I want.
You don’t even have to know what’s going to happen onstage. I don’t
