Everyone thinks about being the next Joe Rogan, Doug Stanhope and Amy Schumer. In order to get that glory, you have to go all in. Comedy is going to take over you life. It is going to demand every second of free time you have.

E23: Cross Training for Comics

Athletes will do a different sport or exercise to help their main sport. This is cross training. Dancers will strength train. Football players will do yoga and swimming. Cyclists will cross country ski. This cross training theory can help you as a stand up comedian, too! There are definitely activities you can do that will help you grow your skills as a stand up. Here is my list:

Improv

Acting

Puzzle Games

Word Games

Karaoke

Dancing (Maybe just me)

There is some other random advice in here, too! I also included a little bonus clip of my husband stumbling in on my mic check.
