Cycle wanted to know what it takes to craft a great joke. So, they followed Louis C.K.’s favorite new comic (and opening act), Inside Amy Schumer writer Mike Lawrence, as he hits 3 different NYC clubs in the course of one night, workshopping a new joke about Bruce Willis, Trump Tower, and Terrorists. Then they called me to edit it.
From the get-go, Lawrence’s talent as a comic is obvious, but so is the fact that “making it look easy” always requires hard work, self-critique, and listening to the audience.
