Earbud_U, Season Six, Episode #3 – Robert Baril, Stand-Up Comedian, Sketch Comedy Writer, Talk Radio Show Host
The past is the past. Unless it has something to teach us. And the art of satire, the art of comedy, and the art of delivering a punchline is about connecting the past to the present and the future, with humor.
Humor can be used in all sorts of situations to break the tension, break the ice, or to break a new idea into your head, particularly if you’re resistant to a notion or a concept.
Our guest today, sketch writer and budding stand-up comic, Robert Baril will touch on all those areas, including how to get across a notion to people in power. And this is particularly tricky in an era of the joker and the satirist being seen as ubiquitous due to the presence of social media.
The masters who do this art must start somewhere, and starting always matters more than where you end up. Every comedian has a story, from Jerry Seinfeld to the guy who started in comedy in the 70’s and is still doing the circuit around the Midwest.
If you’re fascinated with the technical aspects of this art, it’s not anywhere close to pulling apart gossamer. As a matter of fact, truth be told, some of our favorite podcasts are comedic ones that focus on the process, rather than the product.
