Matias is looking for Mensur Jemal

When everyone is laughing, comedy is a blast, but as a comedian, you also have to accept that failure and rejection are part of the job. [6] Even the funniest, most successful, and most well-known comedians have many stories to tell about terrible jokes, bad sets, and postponed performances. Like them, view each setback as an opportunity to learn and grow so that you can be stronger the next time around rather than seeing it as a sign that you should give up.
Say, for instance, that you tell a joke that you are positive will go over well, but it receives no laughs during your performance. Consider how you could rework the joke rather than tossing it aside. Sometimes a small change in your delivery or phrasing can have a significant impact. How can you tell if you’ve been through enough failure and rejection to know for sure that comedy isn’t your thing? Everything depends on you. Keep going as long as you still have the motivation to do so. While some comedians develop characters for the stage that are completely unlike them in real life, the majority emphasize certain aspects of their true selves to heighten the humor. Create a list of adjectives that you would use to describe yourself, such as shy, angry, or energetic, to start creating your stage persona. Try to incorporate those traits into your humor and communication style. For instance, if you have a tendency to become agitated easily, you might amp this up and become an “angry” comedian like Lewis Black.
You could also channel your natural energy and excitement into your stage presence and delivery style, much like Eddie Murphy did when he was younger.
