RE: The Principles of a Good Abridged Show
Film school costs money. I'd rather have someone on the Internet explain it to me for free.

"Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honor him and make whatever the man did live forever."

RE: The Principles of a Good Abridged Show
Just a pretty simple question for you:

How would you define your "comedy style"?

You don't define your comedy style, others will do that for you. I've never seen a comedian or other artist telling people what there style is.

RE: The Principles of a Good Abridged Show
What Harry said, really, you can't define it. I've seen many people say "It's my comedy style to be dry and sophisticated" when their actual stuff is neither sophisticated or dry. It's kinda wet and obnoxious. What you perceive you episode to be, and what the audience perceives it to be probably won't be the same, at least not in the beginning. In the beginning, it's impossible to really "pick a style", your style just forms naturally over time.

Thanks for all the good times.

RE: The Principles of a Good Abridged Show
While you can't define your style i do think you can zero in a bit on the kind of humor you do by looking at the kind of jokes you do. I like jokes that nvolve horrible things happening to people or evil scientists who experiment on people.

You can tell people what kind of humour you HAVE and what kind of jokes you LIKE, but that still doesn't mean you yourself are good at making jokes of a particular kind. You will only know which jokes work after you've tried them out on an audience, which is why a lot of comedians do try-outs before they go on tour and even during the tour they would throw jokes out of their repertoire if they get a bad or no reaction. Telling people what kind of jokes you make only results into people getting their hopes up and getting disappointed if you can't deliver on what they expect of you. That is why it's better you don't talk about your own jokes. It keeps you fresh and original for the audience.

Also talking about the jokes you have made, make you sound pretentious, that's why when you are telling a story most of time it's better to not make yourself the person who makes the jokes. It's almost always funnier when another person made the joke when tell a story back. But I'm getting off track.
In short: Talking about your jokes makes you look stupid. (If you want an example, listen to me on the most recent AF Live. I sound like a jackass)

ALSO look at the first post in this thread, take some advise from somebody who has more experience than me.

RE: The Principles of a Good Abridged Show
I said a bit, not oh yes this is completely what i do.

Ad by jokes you tell i meant to other people and they work. Do i need to define more for you?

Pretentious also implied i somehow think i'm better then you. I'm not i'm just as willing to make a fool of myself on the net as you are.

RE: The Principles of a Good Abridged Show
I guess you think I'm addressing you personally, but with 'you' in the previous post I made, I mean people in general. Also please read through your post before you posting it, because of the bad spelling I can't really figure out half of the things you have written down. This is not an insult, but a request, as English is not my first language, so spelling mistakes can confuse me sometimes.

RE: The Principles of a Good Abridged Show
I felt that you were insulting me, so i replied rather fast. Just joined so i don't know who doesn't speak English first.

Comedy's as the first post pointed out subjective. And here sure are tons of different kinds.

Find whatever label you want here. It's about the best list I can find that isn't too douchey and yet encapsulates a lot.

Point of interest: If you can be defined solely by one of these groups, you're probably not that funny.
