E13 – Why Open Mics Are Important

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.

E12 – Self Deprecating Humor: It’s A Good Thing

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.

E11 – What You Should Record Every Set

When sports teams want to get better the coach sits them down and makes them watch game footage. Watching yourself play is the best way to see what your doing and where you can improve. Comedy is exactly the same way. The best way to see where you can get better as a performer is to watch (or listen) to your sets. Truly and honestly analyzing your sets will help you grow your talent and skills. Seriously. Record every set.

E10 – How To Act Like A Pro In This Funny Business

This episode could also be titled “How To Stay On A Booker’s Good Side. ‘ Acting professionally isn’t dependent on your talent and/or skill level. Whether you are an open micer or on the road, you can follow this guidelines and behave like a true professional. You are probably an open micer if you are listening to this, so definitely get into these habits now. “Practice How You Play” is great advice for sports teams, but also great advice for comedy.
