How do you organize your comedy ideas and material?

Comedy is a powerful and versatile writing tool. It can be used to inform, enlighten, disturb, or even make someone laugh. For many stand-up comics, comedy is natural and instinctive. But with the pressures of life, work, and everyday distractions it can start to feel like a foreign language you’ve long forgotten how to speak. And a huge pain to keep track of when you do get something written down.

With Joe Crovella, Juliana Heng, Donna Moran, and Steve Mittleman.
