Need joke writing advice
March 5, 2009 8:59 PM Subscribe
I need help figuring out how to write stand-up comedy style jokes. It may seem like a contradiction but the thing is that I understand the technical construction of existing jokes, it's just that I can't seem to figure out how to write one of my own. My specific problem is that I don't know how to extract a punch line out of an idea for a joke. How do you do that? I have a good sense of humor and I have an original way of thinking so I think I may have some potential to put something of some kind together. I hope someone(s) will understand what I mean and be able to help. Thanks!
