"A JOKE IS A FORMULA - DO THE MATH"
Manual

"A JOKE IS A FORMULA - Do the math, people." is an insightful perspective on how and why people laugh at jokes, and in particular, at a stand-up comedy show. It's a unique way of presenting the way a joke works. No one else teaches the formula the way it's presented in this quick-read manual.

The formula is explained in an easy to read and understand booklet. Once you've purchased the booklet, shortly after, an email will be sent to you containing the material.

Save Time. Most new comics don't have the time to take classes. Even seasoned comics need a refresher.

Save Money. It would cost you hundreds of dollars to get training in courses and seminars. In fact, many training courses do not necessarily come to your area, and when they do, timing and convenience are always an issue. We recommend that you purchase this booklet and then practice using the formula at open mics and get as much stage time as you can to harness the benefits of truly knowing what makes people laugh.
