Becoming a STAND-UP COMEDIAN can be as easy as chatting with a group of friends; about any odd experience that happened during your day at work; which some might find to be humorous! You would innocently start making them laugh, without prior intention! It's just as simple as telling a joke or becoming the social butterfly of the party; being the one who has often been remembered as the 'class clown'. COMICAL ACTS are tough to follow, however, if one chooses this exciting path, this choice often leads to an even greater, rewarding CAREER - making people laugh and bringing healing to one's soul.
Public bar venues are filled with patrons carrying smiles from ear-to-ear when a comedy night is the featured event. The satisfied faces of many audience members; are only the beginning of more happy customers to follow! There is a contagious happiness brought to the room when laughter fills the air!
In Toronto, Canada, there are open opportunities for all who wish to entertain audiences in this industry.
This type of work involves long-term dedication, planning, script-writing and many nights of trial and error.
One's approach is derived from making 'the best' out of life's lemons or flat tires. Comedy exemplifies one's ability to turn a bad day into a great one; one's desire to see the glass as half-full or to see the silver lining of each cloud.
There are many schools which offer courses to help one develop these talents such those offered at the HUMBER COLLEGE of Toronto (via the School of Creative & Performing Arts; the Comedy Writing and Performance Course by clicking on this ACADEMIC DESCRIPTION LINK!): .....
However, the BEST way to learn about how to earn money in this industry involves job-shadowing an actual Stand-Up Comedian. Many artists produce their own short films, write their own books and organize their own shows which invite a public audience (sometimes having thousands in attendance, similar to those televised shows). The earning potential is limitless! Other recommendations include attending shows at which one may view these artists in their glamor, upfront and personal while they are performing!
If one were to ask a Comedian how much money he/she earns in this line of work, one would learn that the income potential is limitless. It all depends on how much time and effort one is willing to put forth.
One must be able to accept constructive criticism from the audience or from coaches, especially while doing 'improv' (which is another variation of the art form, fully explained in these seven steps listed on WikiHow, click HERE.)
The 'greater north' has provided the common entertainment stage for many successful stand-up comedians / T.V. personalities such as:
(the 'show opener' for Jeremy Hotz - founder of JeremyHotz.com); as seen in these VIDEOS on FrankSpadone.com; who recently returned to Toronto (in 2013) from his twenty-one city cross-Canada tour! Another renowned name in the media has been Nathan Macintosh (whose VIDEOS are featured on NathanMacintosh.com)! Both of these artists have been publicly acclaimed as two of THE best touring professionals in North America. Before embarking on this type of career choice, it is highly suggested that one seeks an interactive experience in the field.
