Quick and Funny 5 Minutes
Love that this group talks about why jokes are funny without ruining the jokes. Great way to spend five minutes.
Bite sized comedy!
Each episode of the DC Comedy Writer's podcast breaks down a comedy writing exercise, and explores what makes jokes work, or how to improve them.
Focused, concise, and entertaining, the podcast hosts and guests keep things fun and informative.
It's like the NPR of stand-up comedy!
A great "best-of" re-mix of what happens @dccomedywriters meetings. A superb companion to anyone seeking to improve their own comedic craft or an appreciator for the flavor of comedy in the nation's capital.
