tightropeEvery comedian will tell you that one of the biggest keys to success is commitment.  A good comedian needs commitment to the craft and commitment to the jokes.  But what exactly is commitment?  Why do people lose it?  Do some people rely too heavily on it? (I’m looking at you Dane Cook) Can some comedians get away without it?  Does commitment to material, even if it is bad, make you a good comedian?

We welcome recent NYC transplant from DC, Mike Blejer (of as I like to call him “The Professor) to discuss.  If you want to hear more from Mike you can check him out on his website.
