I’m a nerd so I watch YouTube videos and interviews allllll the time when at home.
One of my absolute favorite pieces of entertainment which I learned a hulluvalot from is a short documentary called “Talking Funny” (It’s just Jerry Seinfeld, Ricky Gervais, Louis CK, and Chris Rock talking about being funny for an hour….and it’s FREAKING AMAZING).
There’s a profound moment I will NEVER forget…
It was said by Louis CK, while he was talking about how he makes his act stronger:

He says this brilliant thing:
“One of the things I started doing was taking my closing bit, and opening with it, just to fuck myself. Because then I have to follow my strongest bit. So the end of my act gets stronger, because I don’t have a choice.“
I won’t sit here and micro-examine that phrase, because I’m sure you extract what you need from it on your own.
Just thought I’d share this piece of advice that’s stuck with me since the day I watched it (I’ve since watched it at least 30+ times…no joke)!
Watch it now, or save it for later. Enjoy!
