The Idiot's Complete Guide To Comedy Writing. Jim McCue, the founder of The Boston International Comedy and Movie Festival , spoke about the role of the festival in the industry: 'A festival is a great way to get attention for someone who might not have the connections other people do.
This festival is constantly looking for under-appreciated talent. Hopefully, we can do our part and let people see the next generation of comedy genius.
In the stand-up business, 'dirty' and 'clean' are treated as polar opposites. Swearing is the difference between the two, and bookings are based on the distinction.
Club owners, event sponsors, and media executives let comics know, usually through bookers or agents, whether they will hire someone who works blue or whether they are interested in those who will refrain from uttering obscenities.
Profanity is commonplace in contemporary stand-up comedy so much so that 'clean comedy' is a marketable commodity.
Across the UK, there are hundreds of small, informal gigs that run on enthusiasm, for little or no financial profit. It is in these that most comedians get their start.
They learn their craft and gradually work their way up through larger audiences and more prestigious venues. The lucky minority come to a point where they can tour their own show, their fame perhaps fuelled by appearances on television.
The very few become famous enough to graduate to the arena gigs or produce a best-selling DVD. Importantly, it is the live circuit of small-to-medium gigs which fuels the upper echelons of the comedy industry, training and nurturing the talent that big business will adopt.
In this sense, those small-to-medium rooms are fundamental to all levels of stand-up production. Obscenity and other risky material are not inherently part of stand-up comedy, but their avoidance can require a self-censoring and circumnavigation of certain topics that might not be present in conversation among intimates Mark Twain.

Vaudeville Wars: How the Keith-Albee and Orpheum Circuits Controlled the Big-Time and Its Performers. Discrimination by the 'White Rats' union and white-only social clubs With limited access to white-owned vaudeville circuits, blacks were forced to operate their own chains.
The first all-black circuit was formed in by Sherman H. Dudley, a former minstrel player and a well-known comedian, who operated more than twenty-eight theaters.
In , Dudley helped form the Theater Owners' Booking Association TOBA , a circuit which grew to more than eighty theaters. The TOBA programs featured all-black touring shows, especially tabloid musical comedies highlighted by popular singing and comedy acts.
The shows helped popularize blues and jazz The frequent daily performances, long routes, and low pay on the TOBA tour caused black entertainers to label it the Chitlin Circuit that was 'Tough on Black Actors' or 'Asses.
The big-time vaudeville circuits cooperated in booking performers centrally through an arrangement known as the United Booking Office 'UBO'. The 'small-time' vaudeville business, although somewhat more competitive, was still dominated by the same Keith and Orpheum circuits that controlled the big-time business If a performer wanted to do an act in any place important, they would have to go through the UBO Both book from the same floor of the Palace Theatre Buildings in New York The Chitlin' Circuit was a collection of all-black venues, clubs, [and] theaters—that was in the United States during the era of, basically racial segregation, and this is not just in the South my friend.
This is in the North as well, where a lot of African-American families came north during what's called the Great Migration and a number of clubs opened up specifically in these neighborhoods—which were redlined —and subsequently launched some of the greatest music and comedy acts we've ever known.
And so the Apollo Theater was in the chitlin circuit. Not only in it, the crown jewel. Retrieved 20 August The Chitlin' Circuit was African-American comedians performing for African-American audiences because comedy was segregated back then But it was not acceptable in those days for a black comedian to address a white crowd, because as a comedian on stage, you are superior to your audience.
You are giving them your point of view — and in those days it wasn't allowed, so the Chitlin' Circuit alleviated that thing. The Apollo began operating in during the Harlem Renaissance and became the most prized venue on the 'Chitlin' Circuit' during the time of racial segregation in the United States.

The stage is set very close to the audience so that comics are neither at a distance from nor at an exaggerated level above them.
This setting engenders a sense of community and familiarity. Indeed, instead of the usual monologue that comedians normally present in stand-up comic situations, this setting allows for the comics to carry on a dialogue with the audience.
Comedians often ask questions of the audience, and the answers are heard by nearly everyone. This dialogue is a form of the African American oral tradition of call and response, which is quite different from the hecklers mainstream comedians may encounter.
Although hecklers are generally an undesirable, but often expected, aspect of stand-up comic routines, the call and response of 'Def Comedy Jam' is an essential element of African American dialogic performances.
Similarly, the audience's response to the performance illustrates the connection between them and the performer.
The 'Def Comedy Jam' audience is made up largely of young African Americans; the laughter is animated and boisterous.
Many male audience members jump out of their seats, stand up, shout, and 'high five' one another—or even the comic— when they find an anecdote, joke, or situation particularly amusing.
DoVeanna Fulton alludes to this collaboration between comedian and audience with respect to the performances on Def Comedy Jam , a series produced by Russell Simmons of Def Jam Records and originally broadcast on HBO.
