Episode 251: That time I had to follow Reverend Bubba! Zach Funk (Pittsburgh Comedy Festival, Albuquerque Funny Fiesta) on Placement of Jokes, & Following Reverend Bubba

The Art of Bombing: A Podcast About Stand-Up Comedy

Episode 251: That time I had to follow Reverend Bubba! The more a gig pays, the more it can go sideways. In this episode, Dan and Josh are joined by festival comic Zach Funk (Pittsburgh Comedy Festival, Albuquerque Funny Fiesta), who tells the guys about a tight thirty he did at a high school girl’s volleyball fundraiser in a multi-purpose gym cafeteria. This is a fantastic episode for comics who do lots of gigs in alt rooms or places outside of comedy clubs (which a lot of times pay the best!). Zack and Dan talk about the difference between comedy and other performance art forms - Zach makes a useful comparison - to have a good show, you have to keep it moving, just like a shark must keep swimming to survive. Learn about: the strategic placement of jokes at different points in your set, dealing with random facts thrown at you from the audience, and how to set your gig up for success when organizers or hosts feel the need to insert intermissions, raffles, or other interruptions. Please rate and review Zack Funk Zach Funk wants you to know it is ok to be human. He brings to the stage jokes and stories about topics like mental health, navigating life, and being an overactive thinker in an under-thinking world. Combining equal parts heart and nerdiness Funk hopes that after seeing him perform you’ve not only laughed but also feel a little less alone in the universe. His first album, “Brains Are Weird,” was recorded and released in 2019.

The Alex Kraemer Program

The Alex Kraemer Program RSSZach Funk is a comedian living in Pittsburgh. I've seen him perform live and follow him on twitter and I just felt I'd love chatting with him and I was right! We talk about where he grew up, getting into politics at an early age and having strong views even back then. Zach talks to me about losing his father at a young age and how he has lived after that tragedy. We discuss a lot about our mental health and how we're noticing things as we've gotten older. Zach brings up a lot of stuff that I never even thought of before, it was such a great talk. Enjoy!
