We all love to laugh. In today’s hectic world, a
little comic relief is a welcome blessing for most people. After all, it is
impossible to feel like your day is going badly while you’re clutching your
belly from laughing so hard.
Comedy is a bit of a cure-all. It is truly one of
the great gifts of life, and people’s lives are improved and enriched because
of it. In fact, I believe that comedy has the power to not only change people’s
lives, but to change the world.
But all loftiness aside, great comedians
undeniably have the ability to make you forget about your troubles, stresses,
and worries. Under their spell you become completely immersed in an alternate
reality, and taken on a ride engineered inside the mind of the comedian. I’m
not saying comedians are sorcerors, but I am saying I’ve never seen sorcerors
and comedians in the same room.
In my opinion, one of the most impressive forms
of comedy is stand up comedy. There’s no other form of consumable entertainment
that’s quite like it. To me, watching live stand up comedy is very similar to a
mindfulness meditation; I become completely present to the moment. Seeing an

When stand up comedians perform in my city, I go

to laugh but can’t go see stand up comedy live, I usually go straight to
YouTube and start looking for stand up comedians.
I absolutely love discovering new and exciting
talent on the internet. YouTube is filled with gifted comedians from all over
the globe, and I’ve found some extraordinary gems that are too good to keep to

When it comes to stand up comedy, New York has
long been known for harboring some of the best talent in the world. I’ve come
across some really funny ones over the years, but I’ve seen a major resurgence
in the level of comedic talent coming out of the big apple. Elyse DeLucci is a
shining example of such talent.
