Tips for Entry

Develop and practice your comedy act. Perform your act for your friends and family, or participate in open mike nights and comedy showcases in your community.

Attend comedy shows of top comics (or watch them on TV or the Internet) to determine what makes their acts successful.

When you feel you are ready to perform professionally, contact local comedy clubs to see if you can land a job as an opening act.

Write and attempt to sell your jokes or "gags" to stand-up comedians and television shows for their use.
