The way-too-likable, philosophically funny comic, Bret Raybould, explores the role of PRESENCE in stand-up from a makeshift recording studio inside Bret’s private plane. We break this topic down into “being present” and “stage presence”, touching on the stages of learning, flow state, body language, not giving a fuck, and knowing your act. Bret tells us how dealt successfully with following SNL’s Leslie Jones after she brought down the house. We dig into these aspects of presence and a lot more via bits by Brody Stevens, Patrice O’Neal, and Dane Cook. All this while we eat gold-encrusted caviar off the backs of Bret’s devoted team of silent manservants.
Lastly, he has written for the show Apocalypse NowThis, which received a Webby nomination.
