The Nerdwriter deconstructs a short Louis CK joke.
Louis CK is widely regarded as one of the best stand ups around today. This excellent video by ‘The Nerdwriter’ gets to the heart of his craft, focussing on the value of each word and action. Nothing is wasted. It all adds to the humour.
This is about stand up but applies just as well to any comedy writing and performance, where laying a joke with multiple funny moments is vital.
