I’m no comedy writer, but I know how a young man can develop all the charming humor he could ever need. Heck, I did it myself. I think I have all the wit I need when interacting with friends and dates.
Yes, you just do these and pick your HUMOR REFLEXES from them.
Humor reflexes are the most important thing anyway. It’s humor WHEN YOU NEED IT (when talking to friends or girls for example).
Comedy Writing Secrets explains how to construct humor. It was written for comedy pros and writers.
It talks about concepts that are the structure behind humor, like : Incongruence, Surprise, Word play, Exaggeration and Reverses.
When you read about these concepts, you’ll start using them in real life situations. No effort will be required. You just go talk to people and the humor will be there. You’ll just start shouting funny shit.
I don’t know how it works, but it does. Every once in a while, pick this book and read some of it. No need to understand it all or do all the exercises.
Seinfeld will be useful to you because it concentrates more on dialogue than on funny stories.
The stories are hilarious too, but the dialogue is EPIC! All the humor structures are used. When you start watching it, you’ll pick on the WIT of Jerry, George, Elaine and KRAMER !
It is pretty cool when you can learn to be WITTY just by watching a series.
Yes, I know it’s an old show. But who cares. It’s one of the few shows that you can pick your humor reflexes from.
I’m sure you’ll enjoy these. Tell me what you think if you did this already.
Talk to you soon
