Fish Out Of Water

Fish Out of Water is a comedy writing podcast hosted by Jeremiah Burton and Ryan Tweedy. Each week they have a new guest join them and talk about various types of comedy writing from television to the internet to live theater. It’s a podcast where comedians get to nerd out about writing comedy and talk about what makes them laugh.


    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.
