Oh man was this a lot of fun! Amos Vernon is a very hilarious writer and performer for Boat Comedy from New York and now in Los Angeles, He is also a teacher at Upright Citizens Brigade and has a weekly show called Boat Goes Electric!
There aren’t enough great things to say about Amos. Aside from being incredibly humble, he is also very specific with his notes and takes the time to mine every single funny idea from the sketches. His ability t slide between comedic ideas is inspirational. He takes the time to explore the different types of comedy in this episode. We discuss genre, meta, absurd, grounded and even touch on the idea of viral not necessarily equaling funny. We had a great chat and this a gold mine of useful information.
