11 thoughts on “7 Things You Need To Understand About People

  1. Hi,
    I don’t remember if I contacted you guys before. I run The Laughter Foundation and am producing a benefit this June 11 in LA to get one comedian health insurance. I am trying to get the word out that we’re looking for a qualified comedian to receive free health insurance for one year. It can’t be anyone I know. If you can, I would love to discuss this.
    Thank you,

    Great advice. I would love to hear ideas on how to involve the audience in the funny and alleviate their boredom. Make them sing in round? Encourage hecklers? …?

    Great article. I need to read something like this weekly if not daily.

  5. Josh,
    As a struggling comedian for nearly twenty years I must say this has been one of the best articles I’ve ever read. It makes sense and I’m looking at my career a little differently now. I’m starting to get a few breaks here and there so this advice comes in handy. One of those opportunities is next week I’ll be co-hosting an internet radio show called “The Triangle Variety Comedy Show”. If you’d like to come on and discuss comedic career advice, etc. give me a shout @ briantshirley@aol.com. I’d love to help you spread the word about “Connected Comedy”. Either way, I’ll be reading what you put out.Thanks.

    Another great article and I really enjoyed today’s newsletter. In particular: “Don’t think about the value your fans can provide for you, think about the value you can provide for your fans.” So true. As for underdogs – our site http://thestandupcomedians.com – is just that – a bunch of comedians trying to promote the art of comedy – swing by anytime.

  9. Enjoyed the article very much. Although I have been entertaining for years this is my coming out party so to speak as a professional comedian. All advice is greatly appreciated.

  11. I absolutely love sharing this article, Josh. It’s so well-written and book-markable. Thank you!
