Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Ricky Gervais, and Louis CK Talk Comedy

Here’s a fifty-minute round table conversation about comedy between some of the best stand up comics of today. I’ve listened to this video several times over. It’s always fascinating to hear different perspectives on the nuances of comedy, from how jokes are written to how comedy compares to other art forms to whether sound checks are worth it. Apparently this happened on HBO and the segment is called Talking Funny, but I don’t know much more about it than that.

  1. Here is a mildly inappropriate joke I am going to use about acting my age: “Hey man you are not 19 anymore, right?” “Yeah I know. Thanks for reminding me about my impending demise and lack of youthful vigor. “Hey! Here is one for you: Your wife says you have a tiny d**k and c*m before she can even pull back the covers…” I go way further. I then say “Oh I am sorry I thought we were sharing personal insights and observations.” I will get booed no doubt but comedy is its own reward. And many of the greats have too. So if I give any advice do what makes you laugh and find your audience. That and a quarter and you have a quarter.
