December 11, 2009, Newsletter Issue #12: How to Bomb Gracefully

Tip of the Week

Unless the audience is truly hostile, they came there to laugh. If the joke falls flat, deal with it. Do not get angry, sore or apologetic. Don't throw things even if you want to.

At the moment you may think it's the worst thing in the world...but you will live to joke again.

Think Johnny Carson. He was the master of bombing and recovery and that was on national TV. With Carson, the bombing became even funnier by his expressions. He poked fun at himself.

When something you prepared bombs, you feel awful. The bottom line is it's not what happens, but how you react to what happens that will make all the difference in the world...and even in your act.
