My name is Ivan and I’ve come here as an amateur stand up comic but also as a student looking to ask a few questions as part of my study. This looks like a great little community and I would be very thankful to hear your experiences and thoughts. I’ve been reading a lot of the topics here (a goldmine for someone in my position, haha) and I hope this is the right category to be posting this.
You don’t have to answer all the questions, I will find even a couple responses very helpful :D
What is your first memory of seeing stand up comedy?
What’s the best heckle (or response) you’ve ever heard?
I know it’s a huge generalisation to ask but what do you think the differences between ‘northern’ and ‘southern’ comics are?
What’s the most you’ve ever paid for a gig ticket?
Why do you think Britain has such a strong history of comedy?
Is there anything negative about catching a comedy gig in person?
If you had to give three reasons as to why seeing a stand up gig is better in person than on TV, what would they be?
Thanks for your time and I look forward to (hopefully) reading your posts!
