Wayne Federman, The History of Stand-Up
Today’s top stand-up comedians sell out arenas, generate millions of dollars, tour the world, and help shape our social discourse.
So, how did this all happen? The History of Stand-Up chronicles the evolution of this American art form – from its earliest pre-vaudeville practitioners like Artemus Ward and Mark Twain to present-day comedians of HBO and Netflix.
Drawing on his acclaimed 35-years in comedy, including appearances on The Tonight Show, Emmy-nominated stand-up, actor, author, professor and podcaster, Wayne Federman guides us on this fascinating journey.
