How to write standing Up inconsistently funny solo

How to write standing Up is a solo show where Phoenix Atala explains the rules of comedy while storytelling his private life. He describes the step by step method of how to make a show: the best way to find an idea, meet with curators and master writing techniques.
Sometimes the rules of comedy are applied, sometimes they’re broken.
Sometimes the jokes are funny, sometimes they fail.

« Tonight you are going to attend a different kind of stand up comedy routine, the kind where laughing is not the main goal, Tonight I would like to lead a reflection on comedy, the research of ideas, and effectiveness.”
