How to Become a Stand Up Comedian in 2013?

Becoming a stand up comedian might sound easy – go to your nearest club on an open mic night and give it a go – but for people with low self-confidence and low self-esteem, it can be a difficult thing to do. Well, fear not because we live in a digital era where people with no talent (not taking any names – but you already know them) can become famous whereas you do have some talent for comedy because if you didn’t, then you wouldn’t be reading this article. Just let your brain wander off and think of crazy ideas to make a name for yourself. Remember, the crazier – the better, because no great thing starts with a sane idea. Just to get you started, here are a few ideas that will help you in getting yourself into the comedy world. Moreover, these ideas will also help in boosting your self-confidence and self-esteem.

Social Networking

Social networking websites like Facebook and twitter are great ways to get yourself recognized as a funny person. Share self-made jokes or funny stories with your audience. This gives you a great opportunity to assess the comedy material that you’re capable of producing. Just make sure to set your privacy on “Public” so that everyone can see your funny posts and share it with their friends. Do the same on twitter, but make sure to keep it under 140 characters including popular hash tags. You can make jokes about twitter trends to get yourself noticed by the millions.

YouTube

Once you’ve gotten yourself noticed on Facebook and twitter, it is time to face your audience and there’s no better way to do this, than a YouTube video. If you’ve been posting funny jokes, skits etc. on your social networking profiles for a while and getting a good response, then it is time that you make a video and see how it goes.  Start with an introductory video that tells people about you, your likes-dislikes, passion, and so on. However, you have to make your video funny – be innovative, sarcastic, or any other way that could make your audience laugh. At the end of the video, make sure to tell viewers that you’d be posting videos weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

There’s a variety of things you can do a video on and since you’re striving to become a stand up comedian, I’m not going to explain to you how to handle this part.

What’s Next?

The main reason behind going through the above ordeal is to help gain confidence and to build self-esteem. Confidence is like oxygen for a stand-up comedian because without it, you cannot face a real audience. As soon as you get enough confidence, you should visit any stand-up comedy club near you and see how you perform in front of a real crowd. One of the most important things to keep in mind for stage performances is to take critics positively. Even if someone starts booing you the min you walk up on stage, don’t let it get to your head and keep doing what you went there to do. It’s best if your friends and family are there for your moral support. At the end of the show, congratulate yourself on achieving a milestone, take the rest of the night off, and have fun your family and friends.

The possibilities from this point onwards are pretty obvious so just keep doing what you do best – making people laugh. Eventually, you will get your big break and you will make a name as a stand-up comedian.
