THE BOOK on COmedy.jpg


Professional stand-up comedians for over 15 years, festival firebrand Damian Smith and road-dog veteran Jacques Barrett combine forces to explore the how, why and when of the art of stand-up comedy.

The Book on Comedy is...well...the book on comedy. It is an exhaustive exploration of the science and mechanics behind the craft, the history of stand-up, the psychology of jokes and much more. If you've ever wondered why we laugh, why some words are funnier than others, and why the chicken crossed the road then it's all here.
