When people think about getting into stand up comedy, they think about the glory. The crowds, the attention, the IG fans. 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.

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!

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.
