I'm going to be making a long drive this weekend, and to entertain myself I like to listen to stand-up comedy albums on Spotify. Unfortunately, I've listened to most of the albums from comics I know and enjoy, so I need suggestions for new ones that I might enjoy. List of comedians I love inside. [more inside]
Where can I buy Region 4 DVDs of standup comedy specials by Aziz Ansari, Bill Burr and Louis CK? Alternatively, where can I legally download these specials? [more inside]
Are comedy open mics as awful and cringy as music open mics? Can I have some suggestions of good ones in New York City and Boston? At the moment, I just want to be an audience member, with thoughts of maybe getting on stage at some point in the future. [more inside]
I'm looking for stand-up comedy appropriate for a ten year old. [more inside]
What are some great standup comedy shows, specials or DVDs that I should see? I'm hoping to find titles of shows and specials that are especially worth seeing, eg. "Kill the Messenger" by Chris Rock, or "Money Shot" by Whitney Cummings, etc. Extra points if the humour is still funny nowadays (I've seen some landmark performances that just seemed a little dated, perhaps because they've been so widely imitated). Thanks.
Could y'all help me out with finding some good resources online about the craft of stand-up comedy? Books, websites, how-to, videos, albums, whatever you think is important. [more inside]
Decent links to standup comedy resources and advice from anyone who has tried it please. I have agreed to do some standup in the next month having never done it before. Thanks..
