Thank God we are now in that state of mind, where we understand things better before judging them. In current era we are lucky that we have so many professions and fields which can be opted for earning and nobody is going to judge us on that, historically there were no such fields and the acceptability of occupations was less. A stand up comedians, this term was like nothing for the society people used to think that anybody with a good sense of humor is a comedian, or any person who is cracking good jokes is a comedian. They were unaware of this fact that comedy is an art, which is not a cup of tea for everybody or anybody. It requires focus on details, critical analysis on society issues, sometimes defining politics and current affairs (everything else in an amusing way to make people laugh).
These days even organizations are so prone towards this field that they hire comedians for corporate entertainment, of course corporate event is the moment where CEOs, MDs and CFOs are present and to make them laugh requires some serious jokes and decently amusing stories. Being a comedian is a serious job, one has to stay serious while telling a joke, the catch is to use amusing rather abusing words, the tone, the expression, tempo of the voice and hand movements everything cumulatively make a joke successful. However there are so many comedians out there from almost every country (like we said, this field is flourishing more and more) there are different types of comedian: standup comedians, movie comedians, stage performers and theatre jokers. The field is broad and has a lot to be explored in.
We usually don’t get it, a comedian is earning from something which we all can see (but we are failed to see it from that perspective) a comedian is a person with some serious observations, critical thinking and much more. This is not something which one can just stand in front of the audience and start doing stupid things out of nowhere. According to the study, the most difficult job is to make somebody laugh comedian is a person who has the guts and capability to make fun of herself/himself and make people laugh without himself/herself laughing. Try it someday if you can crack a joke with a straight face, without laughing if you failed to do that, imagine how one can stand in front of 100 people and speak spontaneously without even smiling? Every profession is difficult and the most difficult professions are those which look the easiest one. Especially jobs related to art and creativity are the toughest ones as art and creativity requires some serious abilities to look things from a different perspective. So don’t laugh at a comedian, he/she is doing a serious job.
