Thank you everyone for choosing my Stand Up Writing Class! I really appreciate your passion and talents. Thank you for being in my class!
HOME WORK FOR NEXT CLASS: Choose a five minute story from your life and write jokes from the first, middle and last sentence. Take a risk and choose and ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM STORY FROM YOUR LIFE.
REMEMBER: Ask a question and answer it. The question is the premise the answer is the punch line. The more honest you are and the more emotion in the premise and punchline the bigger the laughs. Example: Why am I such a slob? bad habits, I’m depressed, it’s in my DNA, my parents passed hoarding onto me. So now I add the amplifiers: “Why am I such a slob? I stumble around cigarette cartons, empty liquor bottles and subpoenas, I guess my parents live on in my garbage.”
REMEMBER: PREMISE, AMPLIFIERS AND PUNCHLINE.
Use the circle exercise, put a premise in the middle, a sentence for next week’s class, anything, how you feel, ( this is a great idea, Q and Aing how you feel.) writer’s block, have fun with it! Just remember to use four different perspectives, one from each corner of the cross you made though the circle.
Journal three pages a day and I guarantee your Stand Up will benefit exponentially. I promise you.
Rehearse out loud, speak your set into a recording device and then Q and A the set.
