Comedian » Overview


Comedians are entertainers who write and perform comic routines designed to make people laugh. There are many different types of comedy, including stand-up, slapstick, prop comedy and impersonation. Comedians can specialise in one particular type of routine, or use a combination of routines in their acts.

There is no special training needed to become a comedian; the goal is to make people laugh and comedians rely on natural talent and skill to achieve this. This requires a combination of good material, as well as timing and delivery.
