The Comedians Round Table

Ever wondered how comedians come up with their material? Take an interactive peek behind the curtain and maybe even play your own part in creating a workable joke for presentation on stage.

Sometimes, a comedian will create a joke that they love, a joke that they think is really funny, then they take it on stage, present it to an audience and it dies, every now and again… horribly! Situations like this are a risk that comedians generally are prepared to accept, but it doesn’t make it any easier when it happens.

At the round table you’ll hear the tales of the deaths these comedians have suffered, you’ll bear witness to several other pro comics trying to rework the gag so that it can fly in front of an audience and then you the audience will decide if that joke will live to see another performance or if it will be retired by filing it in the ‘Bucket of Shame.’

Andre King hosts 5 comedians who workshop each other’s jokes to create new angles and punchlines while doing everything they can to make it funnier coming out than when it went in. The joke is then performed and the punchlines are voted on by the audience. The comics get new gags they can add to their routines, the audience gets to laugh at new material most of which has never been heard before and have a hand in creating the jokes themselves.
