If You Can't Make Them Laugh, Make Them Cry
December 09, 2014 Justin Matson
Comedian Justin Matson (fresh off a comedy show and a web series called BEEF) stops by to binge watch on some Edward Scissorhands, Hero, Princess Bride, and some other great movies. Talking about the differences between playing the live vibe of a comedy club audience versus trying to captivate a film going public. John Travis shares a disastrous screening experience at a friend's festival. Strategies are employed to tell good jokes and control a room. What to do when a heckler pulls a knife on you, and why is the woman in the front row crying? Nothing cuts the tension like a good song from Jason Wells, so enjoy "Friend or Foe." Getting played off your own show, hyping up our musical friends, does every comedian need a website, do you have to brand out, sketch writing, acting tips for comedians, how actors try to out do each other with emotional beats in real life even when they are only ordering coffee, save the drama for the drama class, how the film industry has exploded and then been exploited by the internet, how streaming has enhanced our binge watching habits, fans on instagram are insta-criminal charges, and a black and white vampire movie is plotted in the final minutes.
