How stand-up comedians can teach us priceless skills for life and work
People think that all comedians do is be funny and make people laugh – but this is only a fraction of the story.
Stand-up comedians demonstrate a truly amazing skill-set. Comedians are courageous, inventive, engaging, and daring. They live life on the edge. Comedians expose themselves and their vulnerability, and the source of their comedy is themselves and their lives. They are incredible communicators. When disaster strikes, they can often turn it into triumph. Sometimes they fail, and die on stage – but they’ll be up there for the next show, when they may well be storming it. Wouldn’t it be great if you could be inspired by them to apply some of these attributes at will in your life and work?
