Dear Young Comics and New Acts,
Please stop writing advice pieces to other comics.
If you think that someone needs advice on their individual technique then please just quietly point them to someone who actually knows what they’re talking about like John Gordillo, Gary Delaney, Andre Vincent, John Fleming, Nick Revell, Bennet Aaron etc.
If you just want to generalise and make other people feel bad for not being as amazing as you (a comic I’ve never heard of in almost ten years on the circuit) then, please, just step away from the iPad.
Go and fix your hair or something. It could use some work.
It’s been pointed out to me that John Fleming is not a stand-up comedian. I’ve simply added him to this list as I find his blog (http://thejohnfleming.wordpress.com) very interesting – he tends to document the more worthwhile areas of stand-up comedy and the Edinburgh Fringe. Worth a read.
