Working Blue? Does it work for Comics in the Long Run?

Entertainmentmax thinks it is important to let fledgling performers know that working blue can severely hinder your career goals. First, let’s be clear about what working blue is. Certainly any language that contains a four letter word is blue. Also, the joke may not have a bad word in it, but if it too overtly sexual, it is still blue, and many audiences as well as clubs have a strong anti-blue material policy. Certainly, you can have a great career and still use bad language, but the amount of clubs and locations you can play will be limited.

Entertainmentmax suggests that you start with clean material. Nobody ever walked out of a show because it was too clean. Just adding the “F” word to a joke doesn’t make it any more clever. It may get a laugh because of the shock value. Once you have mastered the clean comedy, you may find that your comedy voice and persona is better suited to R rated material.
