Don't Rush the Audience

If the audience is laughing at your jokes that's a good thing. So savor the moment...give them a minute to laugh. A common error made by most novice joke tellers is rushing the audience. As soon as the audience is laughing they start telling another joke. If you do that, and the audience is liking you they will shut up to hear your next joke. You then just killed your own laughter, by trying to rush and get more.
