When the Audience is Laughing – Part 1

A great deal of attention is paid to what comedians can do when the audience doesn’t laugh, but, knowing what to do when getting laughs is just as important for beginner comedians. If comedians don’t have any ideas of what to do with the audience is laughing, they’ll talks over the top of them.

How to Be a Comedian Tips – Fear of No Laugh

The point of the pause is to signal the audience you’ve delivered a joke and give them the opening to laugh. But if you’re too afraid of not getting a laugh, you’ll panic and babble to cover the potential silence.

If you think not getting a laugh means you’re a failure and aren’t funny, then you’re headed for the heap of wannabe comics who tried stand-up and quit.

But, if you believe the material is more important than the audience’s response, you’ll keep moving onto the next joke and drone through your show ignoring both laughter and silence. This is the result of memorizing the words of your jokes and then trying to repeat exactly what you practiced at home. A part of being a successful stand-up comedian is being flexible and adjusting the show to each individual audience. Do the show that’s in front of you not the one in your head.
