We talk comedy with 30-year veteran of headlining, Rik Roberts. We watch a clip from his DryBar Comedy special “Put Down the Sweet Tea” and cover so many different writing and performing techniques including using emotion, adding risk, using rhythm, and storytelling. Rik even gives us several exercises and writing prompts that we can use in our own comedy.
Rik teaches comedy and the business of comedy through his School of Laughs online classes and podcast. Learn more – https://www.schooloflaughs.com/ and find more from Rik at https://rikroberts.com/.
