• BBR Productions Inc : Being A Comedian : Writing jokes

Things that should be in a writing kit; A recording device, pen and paper, computer (optional), an environment which is conducive to creativity, and friends (fellow comedians or regular friends). All these items make it fairly easier to get the creative flow out and into form. There is an order to every aspect of writing. However, with multiple ways to express the inner workings of a comedic mind, this is just one of many helpful ways to get an idea from brain to paper to stage.

Grab that pen and paper and start brainstorming. Write out a list of ideas in a column. Once it becomes difficult to think of more thoughts, stop. Now, go through each thought written and brainstorm on that particular thought. After brainstorming is complete, begin recording yourself riffing on the subject, words, and thoughts written all over the paper. This will give anyone a starting point. You can move around the list without going in order. Just have fun.

Now that you have recorded yourself speaking out. Begin writing down what you had said, verbatim. This will show you how your pauses, and natural speaking patterns come off. To help develop your voice. At this point, invite some friends, or fellow comedians, and work the bit out. As a group, if more than one person is telling jokes in this meeting, be comfortable with having everyone through in some creative criticism. Once you feel comfortable with the joke, try it out at a real show!
