Videos: Comedians talk comedy, inspiration, writing & what makes people laugh

There’s a lot of uneasiness and fear, and for him to come up and validate my stand-up, it was just huge.”

Fast-forward 10-Years & he’s still got laughs going strong (see clip):

And finally Comedian Jay Nog‘s “NO JOKE” web-docu asks working comedians “what makes people laugh”

What makes you laugh? Where do you get inspiration?
