This stand up comedy tip will put the audience at ease. While speaking naturally offstage is no problem, many new comedians find themselves performing a “rehearsed” set that doesn’t sound natural. Unnatural sounding material quickly disengages audiences. That means you could bomb simple because the audience finds it as too much effort to pay attention. The best way to apply this stand up comedy tip is to use your pauses and voice inflections as you’re rehearsing your material out loud. This gives you the best chance to be natural on stage.
