The most common mistake comedians make is being funny in a way that’s not “funny”.
It’s a term that has been around since the mid-1980s, when comedians tried to figure out how to do things that aren’t funny and not just “fun” in a funny way.
There are many examples of comedy that are “fun”, such as making fun of people for being ugly, or making fun with a person’s appearance or gender, but many comedians who don’t do that take a different approach.
Comedian Paul F. Tompkins says he tries to make the point that he’s not making fun.
“I do a lot of fun things and that’s what I do,” he said.
“My intention is not to be silly or silly, I’m not a comedian.
I’m just doing what I’m doing.”
Tompkin’s work is in a very different realm from the comedy that he and others use to make fun of.
Toms first show was in 2008, with his sketch “My Dad and Me”.
Since then he’s done stand-up, skits, sketch, and even animated cartoons.
“When I started doing stand-ups I thought that’s where I’m going to be.
I didn’t realize that was the right way to do stand- up.
I was a funny person, I knew how to act and I could write jokes and I knew that I had good material.
I thought it would be funny to try to do comedy on TV and I’m sure it has been, but I was surprised at how well it turned out.”
Toms work in the sketch genre has been praised as a showcase for comedy and the most original of his career.
He said that it’s “not really a comedy show, it’s a satirical show.
You know, it could be funny or it could not be.
It’s not the same.”
