Best Biz Practices for Comics

In the world of comedy, the journey to mastering the art of making people laugh is never-ending. Just like any craft, honing your comedic skills requires dedication, practice, and a commitment to lifelong learning. One of the most valuable strategies for comedians at any stage of their career is to continue their comedy education and seek instruction from a variety of sources.


Here's why:


Expand Your Toolbox: Comedy is a multifaceted art form, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach to being funny. By learning from a diverse range of instructors, comedians can add an array of techniques, styles, and perspectives to their comedic toolbox. Whether it's mastering timing, refining delivery, or perfecting improvisation, each instructor offers valuable insights that contribute to a comedian's growth and versatility.

  • Fresh Perspectives: Comedy thrives on innovation and originality. Exposure to different instructors means exposure to different comedic philosophies, experiences, and points of view. This diversity of perspectives not only enriches a comedian's understanding of the craft but also inspires new ideas and creative approaches. Whether it's observational humor, satire, or slapstick, learning from a variety of instructors encourages comedians to think outside the box and push the boundaries of their comedy.
  • Continuous Growth: The comedy landscape is constantly evolving, and comedians must evolve with it. Continuing education ensures that comedians stay up-to-date with industry trends, audience preferences, and emerging comedic styles. Whether it's through workshops, classes, or seminars, ongoing education provides opportunities for comedians to refine their skills, experiment with new material, and stay ahead of the curve.
  • Community and Networking: Comedy is a collaborative art form, and learning from different instructors allows comedians to connect with fellow artists, share experiences, and build a supportive community. Networking with instructors and fellow students can lead to new opportunities, collaborations, and mentorship relationships. The comedy community is a valuable resource for feedback, encouragement, and professional development, and continuing education is an excellent way to expand your network and strengthen your connections within the industry.
  • Personal Growth and Development: Beyond the stage, comedy education offers numerous benefits for personal growth and development. Improving communication skills, boosting confidence, and honing creativity are just a few of the invaluable life skills that comedians can cultivate through ongoing education. Comedy is not just about making people laugh; it's about connecting with audiences, sharing stories, and offering unique perspectives on the world. Continuing education empowers comedians to become more effective communicators, storytellers, and agents of positive change.


Innovation and Technology: As a virtual comedy club, we’d be remiss not to mention the importance of seeking additional training opportunities in technology. We offer free live weekly workshops so virtual comedians can increase their comfort level and deliver a better online experience for their fans. In addition to the live workshops, Plauzzable provides tutorial videos for comedians which are available under the “Help” tab in the top navigation bar of the comedian dashboard. 


Technology continues to play a big role in marketing on a variety of social media apps, as well. Each platform typically provides tutorials and taking a few minutes to view one or two can make a significant difference in their overall impact. 


Continuing education and learning from a variety of instructors are essential components of a comedian's journey toward mastery. By expanding their toolbox, gaining fresh perspectives, fostering continuous growth, building community, and nurturing personal development, comedians can elevate their comedy to new heights and leave audiences roaring with laughter for years to come. So, whether you're a seasoned veteran or just starting out, never stop learning, never stop growing, and never stop making people laugh!
