“Pouring salt in my sugar won’t make yours any sweeter
Pissing in my yard ain’t gonna make yours any greener”
Kacey Musgraves, Biscuits
It’s easy to get distracted in comedy. This episode is all about my mantra, “Stay On Target.” Put your blinders on and focus on what you have control over. Don’t get stuck in a mindset of scarcity. Laughter is not a limited resource. There’s enough for everyone. I promise!

I recorded this episode on December 4th. The time of year I sit down and start thinking about my goals for the upcoming year. This episode is all about how to set goals that are SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely. In the end, as comics, the trajectory of our career is dependent on the decisions of others. Avoid making goals that depend on someone else’s permission or approval. Focus what you can control. They will help you grow as an artist!

It’s easy to start dismissing open mics when you’re getting “paid gigs.” Some people see open mics as only auditions for bookers. I am making a passionate case for why this is not true. All stage time is good stage time. Get all the stage time you can! Besides, you need to go see your Comedy Mom at least once a week. She misses you.

We are talking all about self deprecating humor. What it is, how it helps, and how to keep it from going too far. Using examples from her own material, Katy Ipock helps demystify writing jokes about yourself. Plus, Comedy Mom gets a little passionate at the end talking about the true purpose in the world as stand up comedians.
