There is writing jokes then there is being funny. At times, a comedian can be very funny but their writing skills and or time to write is limited. This is when hiring a writer to assist is useful. These writers might not be funny performers but our skillful wordsmiths. There is a path for everyone in entertainment. What our your strengths? Are you a writer, or a performer? Are you a comedian who wants to tell jokes on stage or be funny?
The biggest difference between telling jokes and “being Funny” comes down to the style. Telling jokes is a reciting process on stage. Memorizing a set up, throwing out a punchline, then possibly hitting them with a good strong tag. Depending on the joke, a call back can be thrown in there. This is a simple way of getting on stage to make an audience laugh. Anyone can tell jokes. Jokes make us laugh. That is why at parties you can tell a joke and get a chuckle to a big laugh.
What is being funny!? This is when a comedian can be on stage, tell a joke, story, idea, interact with the crowd, etc and make people laugh because they are I general, a funny person. There is mastery involved in becoming funny. Like an actor with a bad script, they still must make it work. A joke could be very bad, but a comedian being funny can turn it around. Both telling a joke and being funny are skills. Both need practice to master. Which one you want to be, comes down to your direction.
