The Ten Comedy Commandments

Yesterday, I interviewed the author of The Comedy Bible, Judy Carter. She wrote the bible, making her Comedy God…and then spoke to me, making me Comedy Moses.  Therefore, I give you the ten commandments of comedy:

1. Thou shalt not heckle
2. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s bit
3. Thou shalt not have any performance art before me
4. Thou shalt kill, or at least be interesting
5. Thou shalt not take the N word in vain
6. Thou shalt not mistake a pilot for success
7. Thou shalt remember the weekend and keep it holy, and do no free work
8. Honor thy booker
9. Thou shalt not claim false stories to be true
10. Thou shalt not procreate with the waitstaff
