“It’s all about progress not perfection”
Joel Byars knows comedy. In fact Joel is dubbed a “Big Bag of Comedy Knowledge” at one point in our discussion by Drew, and it’s no surprise why…. Joel has done hundreds of interviews with the BIGGEST names in comedy through his Hot Breath Podcast so him and his listeners (dubbed the “Hotbreathaverse”) can learn comedy from the pros.
In the process of building his Hot Breath platform Joel has been able to accelerate his own growth as a comedian and build a strong community around the platform. His “Write 10 Club” attracts dozens of comics every morning from across the globe with more joining each day to work on writing.
We will watch a clip from Joel’s recently released stand-up special “Trophy Husband” and gain prospective from Joel and discuss comedic writing techniques including word choice, story telling, building up tension, character points of view, and much more!
