I love people who make me laugh. And it’s not too difficult to make me laugh if you know me. It’s something like this. If you can make me laugh, then you can be sure that we will get along really really well. I think it’s the best sort of an ice-breaker at any social do. Once you have gotten folks to laugh at whatever you have said you can be sure they will pay you attention! True Story! :-)
Actually, imagine that. Trying to make people laugh. And that too just by talking. That takes some guts. And it’s very difficult. Stand-up comedy is even more challenging. Leave apart stage fear, just standing there, with a mic in your hands, looking down at the crowd milling around, not knowing whether you might strike the right chord with them and not spout out anything too offensive that might work against you, that’s scary. You have no choice but to take your chances.
But if done right, and with some disclaimers at the beginning ;-) then it’s definitely fun! And it takes professionals to do that! To sense the pulse of the crowd and to rib-tickle them … Like Russell Peters. Or Vir Das.
