The Light Bulb Suddenly Came On!
Immediately, I threw out almost all of my old stand-up comedy material that I had written using the information provided in the books I had studied and the workshops I had taken.
I ignored everything I had read on writing and performing “jokes” and started over. I began to create specific tools and techniques based on my new discovery to develop comedy material.
Almost overnight, I had managed to work out an easy, step-by-step system for developing and performing stand-up comedy material on stage.
Did it really work?
Well, let me just say that the system was so powerful…
I went from struggling with a seriously lame stand-up comedy act at open mikes to headlining 600- to 1500-seat theaters along with opening for big bands and popular comedians in less than 3 years after throwing out my jokes that had been poorly written “from thin air”.
You can find my detailed comedy resume on this page.
If I had Steve’s course when I first started out, I would have saved myself years of frustration and embarrassment. Now, when young comedians ask me for advice, I simply direct them to The Killer Stand-Up website.
I make a great living as a full-time stand-up comedian and as a magician, but I know I could have started enjoying this success earlier in life if I had Steve’s help. You don’t need any other book and you don’t need to take a class.
Don’t try to invent a hook, or create a character. Instead, learn how to take the personality you already have and create an act naturally. That’s what Steve teaches, and it works!

How Everything Changed… Almost Overnight
Because I was able to figure out how to harness and structure my own sense of humor for the stage instead of writing lame jokes, I was able to easily develop comedy material that worked very well in virtually all performing environments.
I was also able to land speaking engagements and high paying corporate comedy gigs.
When I was writing and performing my “paper written jokes”, it had taken me months to come up with 10 minutes of material that DIDN’T work well on stage at all.
After developing this system, the most shocking thing happened…
In a very short period of time, my real problem was having much more killer comedy material than I could use for the stage time I was given!
Soon, many other new (and not so new) comedians and speakers noticed my remarkable improvement in such a short period of time and started to seek me out for group and private lessons. I didn’t go to them — they came to me.
I’m not saying that all of this will happen to you.
But I am willing to share the system I’ve developed and uncovered along the way — a system you simply won’t find in the popular books, courses or workshops on stand-up comedy.
This system helped me go from a struggling new comedian to a headliner — working packed theaters to corporate functions and become an accomplished speaker in record time by any standard.
I am certainly not trying to toot my own horn here. But I do know what really works for the naturally funny individual — and I painfully know from first hand experience what doesn’t.
Here’s the bottom line:
If you want to be a successful comedian, you need a cohesive and deliberate system for getting solid, undeniable laughs when you perform on stage.
You need the powerful tools and strategies that allow you to evaluate your performances and make rapid adjustments for maximum impact on stage.
You Need A System That Works For You NOW
There is no single secret, tool, or formula that will make you a successful comedian or speaker.
I tried to make the “joke formula approach” work by buying all the books on stand-up comedy. The “conventional” joke formula and joke writing methods simply did not work for me.
Any struggles you may be having now, whether as a comedian or speaker, trust me — I’ve been there.
When I started, I talked to seasoned comedians to find the answers I needed. Besides saying “Just keep doing it – you’ll get better,” most had little to offer in the way of solid information I could use to build a killer act.
I literally spent hundreds of dollars on comedy workshops trying to learn how to become a stand-up comedian with material that actually worked.
I would showcase my act in comedy workshops, only to have the “comedy expert” teaching the class tell me, “You’ve got great stuff. Now all you need to do is make it funny.”
Well, that was like asking me to grow another finger.
But I knew in my heart that I could be a great comedian if I just had the tools, the knowledge – and a solid system that really worked for me and my sense of humor.
I have every comedy how-to book written, right here on the shelf. But I have to tell ya, the best thing I’ve come across in about 20 years is the Killer Stand-Up Comedy System.
Now, when any ventriloquist asks me how to develop stand-up comedy material, I refer them directly to your website.
Thanks for producing what I consider the best information in the business of developing comedy material.

The 3 Essential Strategies For Big Stand-up Comedy Success
Once I was able to consistently get big laughs with my stand-up comedy act…
I started looking for trends and patterns common to all successful comedians – comedians who could get “on a roll” and keep an audience howling with laughter with their their stand-up comedy act.
Every one of these comedians, whether they were aware of it or not, were applying 3 Essential Strategies to get the laughter results they want.
Every successful comedian uses the following 3 Essential Strategies in some way familiar to them to deliver a killer act for the stage:
They have a strategy for:
1. Producing large quantities of killer comedy material in the shortest possible time
2. Testing, editing, honing and refining comedy material in the fewest performances possible
3. Developing and maintaining ultimate stage comfort (which is directly related to getting big laughs consistently)
This is your basic plan for success for developing a solid act as a professional comedian or speaker who incorporates comedy into speeches and presentations.
If you have all three of these bases covered, you have the greatest chance for success in this business.
However, you must know how to get these strategies to work for you and your already developed sense of humor.
The good news is, it certainly can be done and there is a system that will work to help you accomplish your comedy material development goals as a comedian or speaker…
Not in months and years, but in hours, days and weeks
To get these strategies to work for you, you must utilize a customized version of each of these essential strategies tailored for you.
Specifically, I’m talking about actionable strategies that are simply not offered in most stand-up comedy books or comedy workshops.
No number of “secrets” will help you unless you orchestrate them into a specific cohesive system for delivering the killer results you want on stage.
What you need is a tested and proven system for success that will actually work to help you unlock your own unique, individual sense of humor for the stand-up comedy stage or in the public speaking arena.
Fortunately, there is a unique and powerful system for anyone who has a sense of humor that will translate well on stage.

It includes a massive arsenal of proven techniques that are designed to help you capture and structure your individual sense of humor for the stage and help you get measurable results!
This is by far the best comedy writing system / platform / seminar that I have seen to date. If you are a new kid on the block…
Order this system before you work another day. I have been writing & performing for over ten years now, and I can say for sure that this book has helped me become a better writer.
I say that from a guy who has 7 CDs and 3 books to his credit.
Laugh at my ramblings if you want, I am headed to the bank to make another deposit and I have the best October of my life coming up.
The Killer Stand-up Comedy System Is NOT The Same Lame “Joke Writing” Approach That Grandpa Used
Before we move on, let me speak frankly and honestly about what the Killer Stand-up Comedy System is not:
*It’s not a rehashing of the same old and tired “write 50 jokes a day using formulas” approach.
This system represents the first new and unique approach in decades for systematically creating and performing high level stand-up comedy material.
Successful “joke writing” on paper can take years to master. However…
High-impact stand-up comedy material can be developed in minutes and hours instead of months and years by using the right system.
*I will not tell you that this system can make anyone who doesn’t have comedy talent funny on stage.
While most people have all the comedy talent they need, there is no system can make somebody funny who doesn’t have comedy talent to begin with. No system can give you a better personality for comedy.
It doesn’t matter how funny someone thinks they are, not every sense of humor translates well on stage – regardless of what system or methodology they use.
But here are the verifiable facts:
Headline level comedy professionals who consistently kill audiences with maximum laughter get a minimum of 4 to 6+ laughs per minute throughout their ENTIRE act and can generate an average of 18+ seconds of laughter per minute (PAR Score 30+) as measured by Comedy Evaluator Pro.
Note: This milestone is NOT arbitrary and is evidenced by simply measuring the headliner comedian performance levels in ANY widely distributed stand-up comedy CD, DVD, cassette tape, 8 track tape or LP produced since 1955.
That’s what the Killer Stand-up Comedy System is based on – providing you with the detailed, step-by-step process to help you get a minimum of 4 to 6+ quality laughs for every minute you are on stage and…
Get the highest possible accumulated seconds of laughter each performing minute with stand-up comedy material you develop that is structured for your individual sense of humor in the shortest time possible.
Note: Speaking professionals who attain a PAR Score of 15 (45 seconds of laughter for each 5 minutes of presenting) are on fire!
Whether you are a comedian or a public speaker, the fact remains:
The funnier you are, the greater your chances of success are!
*I will not tell you that you will be discovered and become a “star” if you use this system.
There is a long line and a long wait at the comedy clubs for comedians who want to go that route unless they are able to deliver a noteworthy, headliner level comedy act.
But something to consider — this system can give you the tools and strategies you need to help you quickly develop a high-impact, corporate ready act that is in great demand and highly marketable if you are willing to promote yourself.
People who are using this system now are or want to be professional comedy entertainers and understand that it will take effort to meet their goals.
And make no mistake — there are tremendous opportunities for the professional comedian who has a hilarious killer act that entertains audiences at a high level on a consistent basis.
*This system is not some sort of “magic pill”.
Becoming a successful stand-up comedian or a professional speaker takes a lot of discipline, work, and dedication.
But the personal and financial rewards can be significant for those who know how to develop and deliver a big laugh comedy act or presentation — no matter what “brand” or “style” of comedy they choose to deliver.
Now if you are a naturally funny person and think you have what it takes:
Here’s Where The Rubber Meets The Road

Just The Tip Of The Iceberg
The system I have been referring to made available to Members in complete and extensive educational package. Here’s just an additional taste of what this online course has to offer:
- All core course materials are available to you immediately upon registration which contain all the tools, techniques, and methods you need — detailed in a step-by-step, easy-to-apply system.
- Find out which part of the comedy bit is more important than the punchline when crafting a killer act. This one technique alone can save you tons of time working on punchlines that would never have had a chance.
- Discover a powerful two phase rehearsal system designed to show you how to expand and adjust your initial comedy material (Phase 1) before taking your comedy material to the professional rehearsal phase (Phase 2)
- The key steps that you must take to make your act tight enough to get a minimum of 4 to 6+ quality laughs per minute.
- Success principles and strategies for thinking like a headliner comedian even if you are just starting out. The mental aspects of stand-up comedy are more important than the words you say.
- This system shows you not only how to produce “bits” instead of individual jokes, but also how to effectively evaluate your progress and rapidly make intelligent adjustments quickly to dramatically reduce the amount of stage time needed to determine what works and what doesn’t. Most comedians use blind trial and error to find out if a joke or bit works or not.
Without these evaluation techniques, you could possibly spend years trying to craft an act that really works.
Real power on stage comes from confidence in knowing you can get 4 to 6+ laughs or more each minute almost every time you are stage.
If you want to win, you need to be thinking like a headliner now even if you are new to the game.
Let me introduce you to the system that can potentially shave months and years off the time it takes to develop a solid stand-up comedy act…
