This episode is all about YOU. That's right. I opened the mail bag and found a bunch of great questions and some jokes that ... well, you wanted fixed. Join me as we answer the following questions ...

  • Do you have any tips on writing every day?
  • Specifically, is there a place or web site for submitting jokes?
  • When do I know I am ready to try my first open mic?
  • And how much time will I need to have?
  • How many times should you try out a joke before you scrap it?
  • Or should you never scrap it and keep trying it again and again?
  • Do you have any tips for performing for older and more conservative audiences?
  • What happens when you do a joke that normally works and you get no response at all from the audience?

And fix jokes submitted on the topics of ...

  • Airport layovers
  • Underachieving kids
  • Chinese babies
  • and jobs you hate

I talk about Jerry Seinfeld's method for staying focussed on writing and share some other tips and insights for new comedians as well.
