Behind The Bits - Serious Comedy Talk

Behind The Bits - Serious Comedy Talk

Every week, Scott Curtis talks serious with comedians about their craft. Were they inspired by Dave Chappelle or George Carlin, Paula Poundstone or Iliza Shlesinger? How do they write their comedy sets? Which jokes work and which one's failed? How do you find your comedic voice? We hit these topics every week so that you and I can learn from the professional comedians who have blazed the trail for us.
