What cat walks on two legs
” is the first line of the script.
The second line of the script is: “Look at me, I’m a neurosurgeon!”
Before I begin the performance, I have only one goal: to “make the audience laugh.” That’s it.
You and I have to remember that’s all we need to do.
I don’t have to be funny. I don’t have to be clever. I don’t have to sell my jokes. I don’t have to make up any lines. I just have to make the audience laugh.
If the audience laughs, I’ve done my job.
I’ve made the audience feel good.
And that’s all I want to do.
I may try to “sell” the audience on the performance by using my “charisma” or “personality” or “sense of humor,” but that’s not my job. My job is to entertain.
I think that’s what’s often missing in “comedy” today.
People are too concerned with “selling” their “comedy” to make the audience laugh.
It’s all about the “selling.”
When the audience members leave the theatre, they’re not thinking about how funny I was. They’re thinking about how I “sold” them on the performance.
They’re asking themselves, “Did he make me laugh?”
“Did he make me feel good?”
“Did he make me think?”
That’s all they want.
If I can make them feel good, think, or laugh, I’ve done my job.
Now it’s your turn.

The third largest cat in the world is the jaguar, the only Panthera species found in the Americas. Size and weight vary considerably depending on individuals: weights are normally in the range of 56-96 kg (124-211 lb); but larger males have been recorded to weigh as much as 158 kg (348 lb) – roughly matching a tigress or a lioness –, while the smallest females have low weights of 36 kg (79 lb). Indeed, females are typically 10-20 percent smaller than their mates (see below). The length, from nose to tail, varies from 1.12 to 1.85 m (3.7 to 6.1 feet). Their tails are the shortest of any big cat Read more
Why do cats pant in the car? Because cats do not perspire, they will pant when their heart beat is elevated. Cats often get stressed and anxious on car rides because of the sudden change of environment. They do not like change and often see other places they have never been as unnerving. Read more
