comedy beat


        Comedy      comedy is an exact science, you must learn the science

      frame the joke      


     The track has to be continuous until the beat before the joke.

     The skill of the comedy beat:

     The first thing you have to do is study your script and you have to make a mark where you believe the laughs are. This way you leave room for the audience to react. Your laughs come from your knowledge of them, not accidentally.

     String of words, try to find all the beats.

     Get factual. Don't punch anything until something ridiculous. "Beat" before you want them to laugh.

     Don't do all the punch line with each line.

     The joke has to be perfectly framed (cleaning up the joke). Don't bury a joke because you went by it as if it was of no importance.

"In the end, it can't look like acting."
