When Comics Blank!

Entertainmentmax thinks it is important to let fledgling performers know that blanking on stage and forgetting your next joke will happen to you. It happens to everyone. Here is the key. Don’t let the audience know. They have no idea the order your material is in or if you forgot a particular joke. Move on, and do the next joke. Only you will be aware that you completely left out the best joke of your set. Even if it’s the punch line you forget, don’t worry. The audience will just assume that joke wasn’t funny and be ready for the next one.

Entertainmentmax suggests never letting the audience see you blank. Comedy is like magic, and if the audience knew all the funny things you are saying have been prepared and said hundreds of times before, the illusion is gone. There are those few times that you have blanked to the point of not remembering any joke, and it’s obvious you are blanking. At that point, just tell the truth. The audience will appreciate it, and probably laugh if you say you shouldn’t have taken pot before going onstage. Just remember, everyone blanks sometimes at every job.
