As they clock up the 10,000 hours that Malcolm Gladwell says make a master, comedians learn a lot the hard way. Here are their top tips so you don't have to.

1. Use the Rule of 3

2. Draw Upon Your Real-Life Experiences

3. Identify the Key Part and Get There Fast

4. Find the Funny in Pain Points

5. Think Fails and Firsts

6. Listen and repeat.

7. Think Fun Over Funny

8. Screen Your Jokes

9. Tell a Joke

10. Like Jerry Seinfeld Does, Use Inherently Funny Words

11. Paint a Picture for Others to See

12. Do Something Memorable

13. Jokes are: 1, 2 … 4!

14. Use the Art of Misdirection

15. Put the Word the Joke Hinges on at the End of the Sentence

16. Use Tension

17. Avoid Ever Going Blank Onstage

18. Use Your Hands

19. Use Metaphors and Analogies Combined With Hyperbole (Exaggeration)

20. If the Energy Is Down, Bring It Up

21. Trust Your Funny Bits

22. Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance

And last but not least, from Irish comedian Dylan Moran:

23. Don’t Rely on Potential

“Don’t do it! Stay away from your potential,” Moran says. “You’ll mess it up. It’s potential; leave it. Anyway, it’s like your bank balance–you always have a lot less than you think.”

As Mark Twain said, “The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” That type of arms race may be one worth all our time. Most presentations are really boring. With applications of these tips, yours will not be.

These tips are taken from the bestselling book Do You Talk Funny? by David Nihill

  • I'll tell you right now (and I've got proof), that anyone who tells you "size doesn't matter to women" is flat out lying to your face and trying to make you feel better... Heck, just recently I asked a focus group of women via an anonymous online survey if size matters, and again and again they said "Oh my god, I HATE IT when it's SMALL." For a long time I didn't know what to tell the guys who'd write in to me and ask how to get "bigger." I'd say something lame like "Women actually like guys who are smaller... you just have to get good with your hands." Then I found "THE BIBLE of Penis Enlargement" by this guy named John Collins  https://tinyurl.com/getpebible2019
