2014-02-05 00:49:05 - Comedian Bobbie Oliver aims to take the hackery out of comedy in a book that draws on Taoism and Zen Buddhism.
“Too much has been said about stand-up comedy," claims comedian and comedy coach Bobbie Oliver. "I think it’s time someone said Nothing - which is why I have written The Tao of Comedy: Embrace the Pause."
Oliver tosses a grenade into the conventional wisdom regarding stand-up comedy books and classes, and gives the status quo a thorough shaking in her new book.
“My goal is to de-hack comedy, one comedian at a time,” she says.
Bobbie Oliver is a 25-year veteran stand-up comic, writer, producer and comedy coach living in Los Angeles. Owner of Tao Comedy Studio, Bobbie has taught comedy to hundreds of comedians in Los Angeles. She has appeared on ABC, TNN, Style, NPR, Comedy TV, Sirius XM Radio
and was called one of “the best comics in America” by the New York Post. Bobbie has performed in comedy clubs, colleges and hell gigs all over America.
Drawing on Taoist and Zen Buddhist philosophies, The Tao of Comedy is about comedy as art, not as a means to the perennial end: fame.
