    Default Are you a comedian?

    Yes.


    My father's the real comedian/comedy writer, that's not to say that I can't write comedy...
    Comedy is, a skill, I don't find it hard, I just; Say whatever and sometimes think of funny things and write it/say it/go around saying it.

    I think I have a sleazy style of comedy, I think, I don't know, maybe I'm just a sleazy guy.

    I'm always on the lookout for the humor in a situation.

    ... I wouldn't say I'm always on the look out for humour, but if it comes, it comes.

    I preform comedy at local showcases and open mics, including one I host, and have done so for over a year. I consistently get laughs.

    Off-stage, how funny I am is proportional to how well I know the person or people I am talking to.

    Yes--comedy has always been one of my favorite things in life. I have always been aware of it and fascinated by it, and always liked being the witty version of the class clown growing up. One of these days, I'm going to a) try standup, b) take improv classes and c) write a sitcom spec script (EffEmDoubleYou and I started on one last year but got distracted!)

    That's interesting, what are your views on structured comedy like that which you have outlined in this quote? With the exception of improv of course.

    I ask because I could never get my head around the structure of comedy. To me the humour has to be in the moment, the subtleties, the content, the way it is said, the mannerisms, the turn of phrase.

    To me all those elements combine to make something brilliant and yet in a structure environment, while this does work as in sit-coms or stand-up, I can never understand how it would work for someone like me who enjoys the moment of comedy rather than the framework of it.
