Stand-Up Comedy (well… Netflix originals)

Recent finds of humour, giggles, and inappropriate racist comments:

1. Ali Wong – Baby Cobra

2. John Mulaney – The Comeback Kid

3. Iliza Shlesinger – Freezing Hot (Clip)

4. Aziz Ansari – Buried Alive (Clip) 

I love how ONE person can command a physical stage and whole audience for over an hour with NOTHING BUT A MICROPHONE. That’s true performance talent. But the more you watch youtube videos of these comedians, the more you realise how comedy is an art and practice of repetition (testing and learning what works) rather than innate ability.

Also, as Ali Wong identified – I’m starting to notice a difference in the types of humour and topics between male and female comedians. Let’s just say … I’m hooked on start-up comedy and want to know, learn, and watch more.
