It is competition season for my comedy scene, which always flares up everyone’s competitive nature. Here’s the thing: The idea that Stand Up Comedy is somehow a competitive thing, is absolutely bullshit. You aren’t competing against your fellow comics. You are only competing against yourself. You are competing against your last set, your own work ethic, and your own fears. Be resilient.

I also go on a rant about comedy competitions, and tell the hard truth about them. As a producer of a competition, I understand their true nature and purpose. Other producers are going to hate my honesty. But, someone needs to be honest with you about it. It’s not about competing against each other, it’s about competing against yourself. Plus, there’s an easy way to hack almost any competition.
