Joke Writing with Greg Dean
In this online video clip, Greg shares some of the secrets of effective joke writing, the techniques behind it, and why it works. Stand Up Comedy, contrary to popular belief can be taught!
This is just a short clip where Greg starts to break down the anatomy of a joke and how one goes about using a simple system to write a joke that has all the elements of a truly good joke. In just three minutes, Greg shows you how assumptions play an important part in both the set up and the punch and how to use the assumptions to get your audience to laugh.
Greg teaches his techniques in two classes. The first is called “How to Build a Stand Up Comedy Routine” and is the beginning class (also called the “101 class”) and the “Advanced Joke Writing & Performing Class” (also known as the “201 class”).
Even though these classes are named a beginning and advanced, they are actually classes that stand up comedians of any number of years of experience can take. They are beginning and advanced in the Greg Dean system. If you’re interested in faster and better ways to create good jokes and you want to dive deeper on joke writing then you’ll want to take both of these classes.
Greg teaches his classes live in Santa Monica as well as live on zoom. If you are in the greater Los Angeles area, you can sign up for his classes at the Santa Monica Playhouse. If you’re not local, then check the website frequently to see when the next live zoom class is scheduled.
In addition to his live classes in Santa Monica and on zoom, Greg also teaches joke writing via his on demand platform. One of his most popular classes is “Joke Writing Made Simple”. This class can be done in your own time, and at your own pace. You can find out more about this class here: https://stand-upcomedy.com/product/joke-writing-made-simple/
