From their show on Comedy Central to their shtick at the 2016 MTV VMA’s, Key and Peele have mastered their comedy duo. Other famous pairs who have taken comedy to a new level include Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, Fred Armesin and Carrie Brownstein, and Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson.
By forming a partnership, comedians will be capable of generating double the laughs and double the fans. There is never a dull moment with two comedians working together.
Creating a YouTube channel as a comedy duo will open many doors. Here are some tips to creating a comedy duo worth watching.
1. Find the perfect partner.
Much like forming a band, you want to find someone who works well with your talent. The perfect comedic partner will be someone you have chemistry with. Find someone you feel confident bouncing jokes off of and who is capable of responsibly carrying half the weight of your act.
2. Be prepared to share the spotlight.
One of the biggest factors when it comes to creating a partnership is accepting the fact that you are no longer the star. You must be ready to share the spotlight with another person before starting a comedy duo.
Let both of your unique talents shine by incorporating different things that will allow you to express your individuality.
3. Don’t talk over each other.
Along with sharing the spotlight, it is extremely important that partners in entertainment do not speak over each other. If your partner is speaking, let him or her finish before you chime in.
Otherwise, your act will appear sloppy and poorly performed because the audience won’t understand what you are saying. Consider writing a script beforehand in order to avoid speaking over each other.
Creating a partnership with another comedian is a great way to start a YouTube channel. By bouncing jokes off each other and exerting a contagious energy, comedy duos have become hugely successful.
