Jan McInnis – The Work Lady®

“You want me to perform comedy where?” Comedy In Strange Situations – an except from my book “Convention Comedian: Stories and Wisdom From Two Decades of Chicken Dinners and Comedy Clubs” – Part 4

WISDOM: Don’t overthink things. Some of these situations came about because the client was overthinking the audience, such as “Comedy will make the students eat lunch.” No, hunger will make the students eat lunch, but the client was trying to fix something that didn’t need fixing. Thinking about things from too many angles can make your head spin, even if you’re not telling jokes on a Lazy Susan!
