Good Talk with Anthony Jeselnik
Season One began on Comedy Central 9-9-2019:

Why having a strong, crafted LPM
Can instantly put you in
The upper echelons of stand-up comedy:



To play the above video on youtube.com, just click on the image of Anthony staring down Tig.
Then once there, scrub the playhead to cue up this 25-second (2:32-2:57)
segment.
Anthony, "How important are LPMs to you?"
Through:
Anthony repeats, "Yeah: 6 LPMs."

To return to this web page after watching the above video,
just click your browser's Back Button.

Anthony (net worth $2,000,000) may want to know
if Tig (net worth of $750,000)
is just doing her titter-laden comedy "act"
to market her character
for parts in TV shows.

But asking that directly might be kinda rude,
and get her even more defensive
than she already is.

Instead, he makes like a gent and asks her,
"How important are LPMs to you?"
She is taken aback.
So, he spells it out for her, "Laughs Per Minute!"

How important are LPMs?
Well, if you count them before you send a comedy booker

that link to your online audition video,
you can actually calculate in advance whether or not
you should get hired.

Cool trick, eh?

Anthony does not go into the math,
but when he tells Tig that he has a "6,"
she is shocked into momentary disbelief.

Notice she gets mostly titters,
especially in her lame opening
that “gets out of the chute way too slowly:"

You, too, can learn what anyone's LPM is right here, right now:

Can ol' Anthony actually get an LPM of "6"?
Correct answer: yes.
Here's "how to get out of the chute fast:"
http://stand-upcomedyworkshop.com/FunnyMoney.html#anthonyJeselnik

How many combinations of no responses, titters, solid laughs, big laughs and great laughs can still get Anthony his LPM of 6?
Remember: there are 60 seconds in a minute.

Q: "But, Jim: I'm terrible at math!"
A: Anyone can learn to count to 10.
Use the stopwatch on your smart phone
until you can tell without looking
when 3, 5 and 10 seconds have passed.
Learning curve is only five minutes a day for three days.

OK to start out using:
"Thousand-one, thousand-two," etc.
Or: "One-Mississippi, two-Mississippi," etc.

Still having trouble?
Get an elementary school student to help you.
They're not that busy . . . yet.


For multiple examples of first time appearances on national television
by comics using strong LPMs to become major "over-night successes,"
please refer to:
