Does anyone work with a writing partner or another standup while writing material? I’m a dedicated joke writer - I write for an hour five days a week - but it’s starting to feel like a grind. Basically, I’m looking for the magic that happens when you’re riffing with someone else.
About me: male, early thirties, doing standup for < 1 year but comfortable on stage, did the writing program at Second City, capable of writing jokes with strong punchlines, looking to expand my material and help someone else do likewise. I work mostly clean but curse like a sailor off-stage so open-minded.
Some favorite comics: Mitch Hedberg, Eddie Izzard, Chris Rock, Anthony Jeselnick, Bill Cosby.
