Ep. 31 - Mariel Farhi and the World of Dog Surfing
Mariel Farhi is just coming up on celebrating her one year anniversary of performing comedy, and she and Dan discuss some of the performing lessons she has learned in that time. They talk about showing up consistently and putting in the work for joke writing, which includes knowing when to let a joke die. Dan and Mariel work on a listener-submitted joke about dog surfing, leading to some funny ideas and a very odd story from Mariel’s middle school days.
In the extended episode (available at PATREON.COM/DANHASJOKES) Dan unveils some of the terrible jokes he tried during his own first year of stand-up, and Mariel brings some ideas for jokes about serial killers and a childhood game where she pretended to meet Osama Bin Laden.
