Book: Finding Your Comic Genius: An In-Depth Guide To The Art Of Stand-Up Comedy by Adam Bloom

It's worth adding that as well as being an essential guide for anyone who fancies being a stand-up (and for anyone who is starting out as a stand-up and also for quite a lot of established stand-ups) Bloom's book is funny too.

Adam Bloom: Americans love winners, Brits love losers

A few years ago I was backstage at the Comedy Store in London. A visiting full-time American comedian was doing a guest spot. He handed a small piece of card to the MC with some writing on it and said 'Do you get any of these shows over here?' He was basically asking her to big him up in his intro. She shook her head and said 'We don't do that over here'. What the visiting comedian didn't realise was that she was doing him a favour. British comedians don't ask MCs to list all their TV credits before bringing them to the stage because it actually works against them.
