About the Author
Greg Dean has been teaching and writing about the fundamentals of joke writing and performing stand-up comedy for thirty plus years. When he began, Dean quickly realized there were no documented fundamentals for teaching comedy. So, for the past three decades he’s made it his life’s mission to identify, name, and teach the basic techniques used by all great joke writers and comedians. These fundamentals were first published in his paperback, ebook, and audio book Step By Step to Stand-Up Comedy. Now, these same joke writing and performing techniques are available as a series of exercises in his Step By Step to Stand-Up Comedy – Workbook Series.
This workbook assists and guides you in the process of performing and becoming a working comedian. Only stage time will give you the experience to apply all the techniques and skills you’ve learn in this workbook series. This companion workbook turns the instructions, advice, and goals from Chapters 9, 12, and 13 of the paperback, ebook, or audio book of Step By Step to Stand-Up Comedy into exercises so you can learn where to get experience and how to behave like a professional.
