Most people are funny.  Well not most, but a lot of them are. What makes a good comic is finding ones voice, having a defined vantage point, and ability to do accents and cool hand motions.  I never mastered comedy (video evidence at page bottom), despite being on stage over 1,000 times. Through my time spent, I met some really awesome people in the New York comedy world.  One way I helped the scene was to brand comedy shows and make flyers, including one a week for UG, a ragtag show on the Lower East Side.
