    Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy, written by Greg Dean, is a comprehensive guide for people who are funny, want to be funnier, or have dreams of being a stand-up comedian. This first-of-its-kind audiobook demystifies the craft of comedy by breaking it down to the fundamental skills used by professional funny people. Dean lays out these skills in simple-to-understand lessons that are easy to practice and master.

    Story
    Would you listen to Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy again? Why?

    Yes. I have listened to it twice already in order to commit most of the techniques to memory. I listened it once just audio when I was driving during the week and then again to go through all of the exercises provided in the workbook.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Greg Dean? Why or why not?

    I would try another book by Greg Dean because of the way he presented this book was fantastic.


    What does Greg Dean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have the book as well but the techniques only really hit home when I started to listen to this book. The way he explains things make much more sense than actually reading it. With just the book, I found myself having to reread portions of the book and give up on certain concepts. Listening to this book is like having a teacher demonstrate and teach the whole book. Very effective because I could listen to it when doing chores or driving. There's actually much more time when I can listen that I can read.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy?

    Using the joke structures I was able to write my own jokes from scratch. I've been able to use the material in my speeches to add humor. I've been getting laughs! I didn't really think it was possible.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't buy this in order to become a stand-up comedian, just to add more humor to my speeches. I had never considered myself "funny" but using the techniques I've trained myself to write jokes and find humor in any situation.
