This was an interesting audio series. The author is correct by saying that people tend to gravitate towards those who have a sense of humor. This audio tape is not about how to become a stand-up comedian, although some of it may apply. It is more about adding humor to the most upsetting situations or breaking the ice in conversations. The number one rule in being funny is to always make fun of yourself. Being funny, makes someone more approachable and likeable. Everyone wants to be charming and funny but instead end up being ridiculous and silly. The author has helped me understand what a good sense of humor means and how to avoid common mistakes.
He talked about being yourself and finding your own brand of humor, knowing your audience and what will make them laugh. He encourages us to listen, watch, and be in situations where we can be funny and help us get inspired to be funnier and practice. Most important parts of humor per the author is length of routine and timing. He gives us some type of activities to participate in to become funnier. If an attempt was made to add humor to a situation does not work, then turn it around and make fun of yourself. I will try some of these tips when meeting my friends next time.
I got about halfway through it. it's hokey and very contrived. a book that tries to teach you how to be humorous should be humorous that you think? based on other books I've been through it does touch on some good principles but it does such a shoddy job of elaborating or demonstrating
