Good old cartoon has taught us that we win every time we find some humor in a difficult situation. On the other hand, there’s the one about saying the truth to people. If you want to strike them with the truth, you better wrap it into humor. Otherwise, they’ll kill you. Or anything similar.
Comedy is way of living, the way of handling and approaching to everyday’s life and subtle, intriguing way of criticizing the world around us. It’s a form of art and you can find it in various forms and shapes. You may read some funny article or book, or choose comedy as a preferred movie genre for this Friday night, or you have surfed and watched tons of comic videos all over the internet.
However, when talking about comedy, people mostly have stand up comedians in mind. Carlin, Louis C.K., Izzard, Moran and many others who look like pure natural talents while making the audience laugh. They build their material around most various topics, using lucid ways of analyzing world around them, being fully open, direct and honest and creating their own, personal and unique way of interacting with the audience. Originality counts so much in the world of comedy, but personal expression of the stories based on a good acting is also essential.
This is why most of comedians keep their material for public appearances.
