Stand-up comedians are able to stand in front of an audience and use personal stories and jokes to create laughter throughout the audience. Dave Chappelle once told this story “Stand-up comedy is usually performed in an auditorium, comedy club, theater, or a bar. One of the most essential things to know before performing is whom you are performing for. An audience can alter what jokes you perform, and how successful your performance is.

Nearly all people of today’s society enjoy watching and relating to the content of current humorist such as Leslie Jones, Jimmy Kimmel, and Seth Meyers. Not only do comedians provide entertainment for many individuals, they allow the true values and opinions of society to be revealed in a more pleasant and tension-easing manner. In his 2004 book, Status Anxiety, author Alain de Botton accurately emphasizes the crucial role that humorists play in society by thoroughly discussing how humorists are able to openly speak about rising issues that the rest of society typically keeps repressed. The content of comedy is ever changing as years pass by, but one thing remains the same. Comedy always expresses the current beliefs and attitudes of the public towards present
In 1983, he embarked on his self-subsidized “Poverty Tour” of comedy clubs across the U.S. His career started to take off, when he made several appearances on the talent show “Star Search”. He then landed a few small parts on T.V. show’s eventually catching the eye of Bill Cosby who put him on his new show “A Different World” in which he played a kind dorm director at an all black college. This led him into a few starring and co-starring roles in major motion pictures and made the name Sinbad, a household name across the country. If I were to describe Sinbad’s style of comedy, I would have to say it to be much different than that of Richard Pryor.
Improv has become so synonymous with comedy that many of us often forget that it used by various other different mediums. As soon as Hayden presented the class with the other types, I became surprised about the variety in this one art form. As Hayden explained improv as a whole and how it was different depending on the form, common themes that were shared by all became clear. No matter what type,there are basic rules in improv that can applied to everyday life. These basic rules are: always say yes and, respect your partner,and listen... ... middle of paper ... ...a great way to connect with your audience regardless if they are sitting in a theater or standing in a museum lobby.
In his speech, King questions why misery would “constantly haunt the negro? In some distant past, had the forebears done some tragic injury to the nation, and was the curse of punishment upon the black race?” (Paragraph 4). By the use of rhetorical questioning, King creates a vulnerable image for the blacks, because they were innocent victims of wrongdoing. They had done no harm to the whites, so why were they being so abused by them? When King questions and targets the whites, he is also using ethos to appeal to sympathy of the black race.

As discussed over a National public talk radio between Neal Conan and Alan Gribben, an english professor at Auburn University, “Many scholars and teachers view Twain’s language as an integral part of the story(SourceD).” The word Twain repeats throughout Huck Finn, illustrates America’s past attitude towards African Americans. When we dispose of the uncomfortable diction through censoring, we are masking the truth of our own history revealed through Twain’s expressions. We must explore our heritage and comprehend why the word has such a negative connotation to this day. Because Twain’s choice of delivery is satire, he is making fun of the crude behavior of racists during the post civil war time era. He wants the reader to feel nervous and uncomfortable while revealing how harsh the society of the 1800’s, showing the sensitive language that was permitted at that time.
