Based on comedian Pat Oates’s weekly comedy advice articles, How Not to Suck at Comedy is the comedy guide to pursuing stand up comedy that ACTUALLY talks about things comics starting out encounter. This book covers things like utilizing open mics, why you aren’t getting gigs, relating to audiences, how to know if you are getting paid, and every other question a struggling comic has but doesn’t know who to ask. This is like no other comedy help book because this was written about the struggle, not the fame. If you are a comic, always wanted to be a comic, or just love comedy, How Not to Suck at Comedy is for you.
