Stand Up Comedy – Art or Science?
Comedy is a style of performing and a style of writing. As such, they are elements, technologies, devices, physical and auditory devices that we can use to help generate new jokes or even make a joke funnier.
Now, stand up comedy does have an artistic side to it. If you’ve ever seen someone go on a spontaneous rant or find comedic gems by simply interacting with the audience, you know what I mean. That said. I believe that by recogning the various comedic technologies that the masters have employed, I can enhance my own performance.

After listening to their performances, I’ve made a list of comedic technologies that I can use to enhance my performance. This is a living list, but given that this is lierally my 3rd day of writing comedy, I think it’s a good start. I’m sure the list will grow over time.
