I was just about to put together a list of all the stand-ups in the country, but then I realized that we can’t all be a comic, and that if we’re all stand-sits, we’re not all comics.
So instead, I’m going to tell you how to be awesome stand up comics.
But first, here’s the thing: I know you probably have a lot of questions, and it’s probably time to break down what you need to know.
First, if you’re looking for some advice on how to do stand-uppys, this is probably not the guide for you.
Second, this list is only for comics.
And third, I don’t want you to feel intimidated by the advice, and I definitely don’t care what you’re thinking, because I’ve seen so many great stand- ups in the past.
And finally, if this is your first time reading my column, please don’t get angry.
