One year of Stand Up Comedy Journey in India

Author Name: Jagdish Chaturvedi | Format: Paperback | Genre : Humor | Other Details

When Jagdish Chaturvedi, a doctor-turned-innovator-turned-author, could not balance his schedule effectively to perform as an actor, he chose to transition from theatre to a comparatively less schedule-intensive art form – stand-up comedy.

This book is about the first year of his transformational journey, and it delves into several aspects of being a successful comedian, such as the process of writing jokes, delivering them, promoting a show, branding oneself, understanding the audience and even rescuing the show.

What are the challenges? How do you overcome them? How much can you earn and how can you sustain it on a regular basis? What are the key learnings to take from bad experiences? What shouldn’t I do?

This book shares raw experiences of a growing stand-up comedian and includes a separate section that provides valuable advice from seasoned and experienced stand-up comedians. This book aims to be a struggling comic’s answer to all unanswered questions with the hope to help accelerate their journey towards faster growth as a stand-up comedian.
