Reader's Digest Version of My Comedy Backstory

Posted on November 22, 2017 at 8:09 AM
I never decided to become a stand up coach or comedy class teacher. I was basically drafted.

Cut to the 80's....
Due to some successes early on and the explosive nature of the big comedy bang I got pounced upon by comics, radio personalities, and booking agents offering to pay me to write for them, coach, and even begin a ground breaking comedy educational world of running writer's camps. When you're basically new to the comedy business who says no to that??
After all I had an inclination for helping and what seemed to be a soulful knack for getting across my points to new talents and experienced ones. I had at that time already gained a very positive rep for giving away a ton of free advice to comedians before that and since of course.
Anyway, the 'writer's camps' thrived and  THAT turned into workshops, next came comedy classes. And as I say, all of it began as early as the 80's, that's historical fact. In the same decade factor in the mega opportunities the 80's brought me to write for 'Bob and Tom' national radio show, 'Mother Goose and Grimm' nationally syndicated newspaper cartoon strip, a Pulitzer prize winning humorist and later a TV show. You can see I was being paid to write, direct, visualize comedy bits for comics on stage acts, newspapers, radio and TV all at once. Not to mention my own act, when I could get around to it.
Cut to early 90's... Jay Leno dropped the life changing event on me with the opportunity to write for NBC's 'Tonight Show'. The rest is even more history.
Now to 2000's...I find myself in the twilight of my career returning to a city where it all began to continue this amazing journey of writing, performing, coaching as well as developing the Comedy Arts Center and a TV show. Here we go again.

Writing comedy punches is an art, it is not easy to write unique comedy every time. I am a regular viewer of comedy shows and I love the shows from the essay services. One should have humor to enjoy the comic punches because if they don’t that would turn into tragedy. I wish many new comedies should entertain us.
