Help I'm turning into a comedy nerd

Recommended Posts

I didn't sleep last night cos I was lookin up what some comedians have done recently, and interviews, and podcasts of them.
I've never done that before, and I think Earwolf is totally to blame. I've always bin interested in how good comedy gets made, but over the passed year I've grown super interested.

I've got another passion that I kind-of know all about now, and it's lost some magic now that I'm behind the curtain, but I'm still at Stage 1 with comedy. So what's some super faggoty college-boy stuff I should watch about stand-up, or comedians, or how some of these people got so good at what they're doing, etc?

I'd say the community is less support group and more pushers. You got your taste, now you're hooked. Read some books. Patton's is great, David Cross has a good one, Tina Fey's, Sarah Silverman's etc etc.

I really loved the Comedians of Comedy Live at the Troubadour. Great comedy special you can find on Netflix Instant: Dana Gould: Let Me Put My Thoughts in You.
