The goal is to help to help develop material for stand-up comedy. There should be at least 3,000 words and 100 jokes (possibly fewer if it is more elaborate and situational in nature). The ultimate number of jokes is far less important than the quality of the comedy, but because of the "quarterly check-in" we can level set on the quantity goals. The comedy should be smart and not deeply offensive- it can be topical, political (left leaning), uplifting, and appropriate for an American audience (Eddie Izzard, Louis CK, Tig Notaro, Aziz Ansari, etcetera). It goes without saying that the comedy has to be completely original and all rights to the comedy are forsaken indefinitely (must never be written or otherwise communicated at any time), and working on the comedy shall not be disclosed to any other party indefinitely.
The whole routine may include one liners, “imagine if,” historical or political commentary, and stories. The routine must contain transitions.
I ask that the writing be submitted in quarters (when you get through 25%, 50%, etcetera) so it is possible to course correct as necessary. If the deliverable is not successful after reviewing the first quarter, I will pay a quarter of the price and the project can cease. Please supply a sample of your writing and any credentials/experience you may have. If successful, there could be more similar work. Some prompting material will be sent along as possible fodder (though not required).
