New To Stand-up Comedy? A Great Starting Point: ComedyUniversity.com
One of the reasons why Killer Stand-up Comedy System users have a serious edge over most comedians is because they use Comedy Evaluator Pro as their guide for performance improvement as well as reinforcement that they are truly performing at a noteworthy level.
Comedy Evaluator Pro is featured in the popular stand-up comedy documentary “I Am Comic” directed by Jordan Brady.
Comedy Evaluator Pro is now an online service that allows comedians and comedy entertainers to accurately measure just how much laughter, cheering and applause they generated for any particular show — no matter how long or short the show may be.
Here’s why Comedy Evaluator Pro gives comedians such a powerful advantage:

Headliner level comedy material generates an average of 18+ seconds of laughter per performing minute (PAR Score 30+).
This is indisputable and evidenced by the evaluation and measurement of accumulated laughter generated in ANY CD, video tape or recording of any popular headlining comedian in the past 60+ years.
What Happens On Stage
There are only two things that happen when a comedian is on stage — the comedian is talking or the audience is laughing. Both of these events are consume time which is measurable.
If an audience is not laughing or not laughing at an acceptable frequency (meaning the comedy material being delivered is either not funny or doesn’t have enough punchlines), well that is measurable too. It’s called bombing — a warm and friendly comedy term that means the comedian is experiencing difficulty generating the laughs they need.
Probably the biggest and most powerful advantage Comedy Evaluator Pro users have is that they are able to determine — on a minute-by-minute basis which parts of their stand-up comedy act did not produce 4-6+ laughs per minute or an average of 18+ seconds of laughter per minute (PAR Score 30).
This gives comedians the critical feedback they need to make intelligent edits and adjustments as needed to get more laughs from their material.
In other words they know exactly which minutes of their act don’t have enough punchlines or have set-ups that are too long.
Another fantastic advantage of Comedy Evaluator Pro is that talented comedians don’t have to wait for ANYONE to tell them or reassure them that they are working at headliner level once they hit 18+ seconds of laughter per minute (PAR Score 30).
Let me put this another way…
Comments like “great set” or “you nailed it” offered by other comedians don’t give any real indication of just how well a comedian actually did during a performance.
Comments like “you’re getting better” fall into the same category — they don’t provide any indication of which parts of a bit need the most attention to get bigger and better laughs.
About Counting Laughs Per Minute
Simply counting the the number of collective audience laughs a comedian generates each minute can give a comedian a false sense of accomplishment without some indication of the intensity of the laughs generated.
Here’s what I mean by that:
Let’s say that a comedian can generate 4 laughs each minute with their stand-up comedy routine. If those laughs are only 1 second long, that means the comedian is only generating 4 seconds of laughter each minute. That may not quite be bombing, but it is a far cry from the laughter levels needed to move forward as a comedian.
Note: Individuals who generate headline level laughter from their stand-up comedy material cause average laughter episodes of 4 seconds per laugh (give or take a second).
I should also mention that a comedian does not have to hold the “title” of headliner in order to generate headliner laughter levels. But they do need to know exactly what they are doing when it comes to developing and delivering headline level stand-up comedy material.
Every comedian who steps on stage is afforded the exact same 60 seconds each minute to generate laughs — whether they are on stage for 5 minutes or 50 minutes.
A comedian’s value as a comedy entertainer is directly tied to the quantity and quality of the collective audience laughter they can generate.
A comedian begins to draw attention to themselves and gets exposed to bigger and better performing opportunities once they are able to approach or exceed generating an average of 18 seconds of audience laughter each performing minute.
When you consider that most comedians don’t even record their stand-up sets, much less conduct any sort of performance evaluation on their sets to make adjustments or edits to tighten their stand-up comedy material, it’s pretty easy to see why is takes most new comedians a long time to finally come up with a solid and tight stand-up comedy routine.
Even if they do make edits or adjustments to their material, they are left with basically having to guess if what they did actually made a difference or not.
So it should be pretty darn easy to see how Comedy Evaluator Pro evaluations have the potential to give a comedian a significant edge over other comedians quickly provided they know how to develop and structure their stand-up comedy material to generate 4-6+ laughs per performing minute right from the start.
So if you run into a comedian who seems to have come out of nowhere, can kill an audience and seems to get funnier every time they perform…
Here’s the big secret they WON’T tell you: the chances are very good that they are using the Killer Stand-up Comedy System and Comedy Evaluator Pro to get those results that others just can’t seem to get.
