More From Stand-up Comedians
Stand-up comedians are the professional performers who tell jokes and perform comical acts in front of a live audience, usually speaking directly to them. These comedians usually recite humorous stories, jokes and one-liners to the audience, pausing in between for a few seconds to allow for audience reaction. Stand-up comedy is very popular in comedy clubs, bars, colleges and theaters, and the comedians may use props, music, and magic tricks to make their routines more interesting. Being a stand-up comedian is a high pressure job as the comedians are expected to keep the audience laughing steadily throughout the performance. Eric and Ernie, a British comic double act who worked in variety, radio, film and television were considered "the most illustrious, and the best-loved, double-act that Britain has ever produced". Peter Sellers and Tommy Cooper followed in their footsteps to establish themselves as hilarious stand-ups who were much loved by the audiences. Their American counterparts like Jackie "Moms" Mabley and Jack Benny touched the heights of popularity with their excellent comic timing and delivery of jokes. Chris Rock, Joe Rogan, and David Cross are popular stand-up comedians of the contemporary time.
