Be Funnier with Scotty Meltzer: That’s Still Not Funny!

Last month Katrine and I did trade show presentations for an audience of cancer doctors. (I wrote about how we dealt with that in my previous article: “That’s Not Funny.” This month, I pick up where we left off.) The main tactic Katrine and I employed in our comedy writing for this gig was: Attack the periphery. Rather than making jokes …

In Part 1 of this article, I examined a wide array of nearly unbelievable tricks performed by Enrico Rastelli, Alexander Kiss, Ernest Montego, Alberto Sforzi, and several others.

The Greatest Juggling Tricks Of All Time (Part 1)

When I first read descriptions of the acts of Enrico Rastelli and Alexander Kiss, I was quite sure that some of the tricks described were hyperbole. I believed that surely the writer had miscounted the number of props being juggled or combined tricks together in his memory. In one or two cases, this was exactly the case. Rastelli juggling 6 …

A new form of juggling can be seen by much of the world days after it’s first performed or even prior to anyone presenting it before an audience. Copycats can crop up almost immediately. One would think that this wasn’t the case 120 years ago, but that’s not necessarily …

Big Apple Circus, 2013- Luminocity

The Big Apple Circus is back again. Every year it’s pretty much completely different in terms of acts and themes. This year’s theme, “Luminocity,” puts you in the hustle and bustle of Times Square, New York, and the performers are just plain folks walking down the street under the bright lights and noise, each looking for an excuse to break …

Be Funnier with Scotty Meltzer: That’s Not Funny!

KATRINE: Client wants us to make jokes about cancer. SCOTT: How much does that pay? Katrine and I just finished doing three days of shows about cancer. This was not the easiest subject we’d ever been hired to write jokes about. Our client makes scanners and linear accelerators designed to find tumors and then blast them with radiation. They made …
