Is It Any Good?

From performing stand-up on the top of a moving double-decker bus throughout Los Angeles to coming up with good concepts for digital shorts (videos of short comedy skits), Funniest Wins gives folks a fun chance to see the kind of work and training that goes into being funny. It also highlights how the profession has changed from requiring comedians to spend years working on their craft and trying to be discovered to having no experience or training and starring in viral videos to become an instant comedy hit.

There are lots of laughs, as well as awkward moments, especially when contestants fail to elicit chuckles from their audiences. But folks interested in comedy will find the advice and critiques offered by seasoned professionals helpful, especially when it comes to dealing with the challenges that come from going to and from traditional platforms to digital performances. You may not find everything here funny, but there are some interesting things to be learned.
