Do you think youâre funny? Do you want to turn your sense of humor into a career? If the answer is yes, then Judy Carterâs The Comedy Bible is for you. The guru to aspiring stand-up comics provides the complete scoop on beingâand writingâfunny for money.
If youâve got a sense of humor, you can learn to make a career out of comedy, says Judy Carter. Whether itâs creating a killer stand-up act, writing a spec sitcom, or providing jokes for radio or one-liners for greeting cards, Carter provides step-by-step instructions in The Comedy Bible. She helps readers first determine which genre of comedy writing or performing suits them best and then directs them in developing, refining, and selling their work.
Using the hands-on workbook format that was so effective in her bestselling first book, Stand-Up Comedy: The Book, Carter offers a series of day-by-day exercises that draw on her many years as a successful stand-up comic and the head of a nationally known comedy school. Also included are practical tips and advice from todayâs top comedy professionalsâfrom Bernie Brillstein to Christopher Titus to Richard Lewis. She presents the pros and cons of the various comedy fieldsâstand-up, script, speech and joke writing, one-person shows, humor essaysâand shows how to tailor your material for each. She teaches how to find your âauthenticâ voiceâthe true source of comedy. And, perhaps most important, Carter explains how to take a finished product to the next levelâmaking moneyâby pitching it to a buyer and negotiating a contract.
Written in Carterâs unique, take-no-prisoners voice, The Comedy Bible is practical, inspirational, and funny.
