Text Quotes
Originality is never embraced as quickly as the commonplace  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) This whole urban rap thing needs to be pulled back some. The ghetto is being glorified, and there’s nothing good about the ghetto except getting out of one  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Ideally, you want to be in a fifty-fifty power-sharing arrangement with the audience - both of you are there for a mutually enjoyable experience  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Being black and speaking properly are not mutually exclusive. My father was an African, and he spoke beautifully at home. Nelson Mandela speaks beautifully. Should Mandela put his hat on backwards and say, ‘Yo, homey, this is Nelson. Yo, Winnie, yo, this is def’?  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) I don’t like the fact that most black people or black comedians have to present themselves in a flamboyant way. It’s good if you can do that, but I don’t like to think that’s the way all black comedians are. I’m not that type  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) On a good night, I’m just into the flow and seeing the pictures and words in my mind clearly before I say them. On a bad night, which to be honest are nowhere near as bad as when I was starting out, I just concentrate on performing the routines correctly. I focus on my delivery  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) I have no desire to be hip to the latest black slang and do the stereotypical black thing. I was a Richard Pryor fan, and I have used profanity in my act. But when it becomes a whole thing that defines blacks, we’re limiting ourselves. The enemy is us  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Be prepared to cut your little extra lines that come after a big punchline and move on to the next joke or routine to give your set more punch and crispness. You can keep them in your set, but if the audience applauds your big line, don’t do your tag when it dies down, just move on  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) An aspiring comedian must be determined to get to his or her true feelings on a subject and convey that to the audience. Figure out what you’re feeling or interested in because the goal is to get the audience interested in what you’re interested in. Good stand up comedy is drawing people into your head  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Moving to Australia was not a career move, but a quality of life issue. It has no guns, no God, and no gangster rap. As an Ethiopian cab driver said to me the other day when I was returning from a gig in Sydney, Australia is a peaceful, democratic place. I like the relatively stress free lifestyle. It’s worth the drop in income  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Walking back and forth also helps by creating the illusion that you are thinking of the routines on the spot, giving your performance a more spontaneous feeling.  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Being a professional comedian is doing it right and good, when you don’t feel like it  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Bombing teaches you how badly you want to become a comedian. Because unless it’s a burning desire, you’ll quit when the consistent bombing becomes too much to take.  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) If I’m crisp and economical in my delivery, have smooth transitions, movement and animation, and flights of fancy, that would get me an A.  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Don’t try to give a funny opinion; give your opinion in a way that will be funny  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) I don’t think that comedians have a tradition of trashing the next generation  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) If I’m crisp and economical in my delivery, have smooth transitions, movement and animation, and flights of fancy, that would get me an A  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Don’t try to give a funny opinion; give your opinion in a way that will be funny  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Being a professional comedian is doing it right and good, when you don’t feel like it  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Black people drink lots of beer. However, you won’t see us skiing down a mountain for one, or see us diving for Frisbees on concrete for one  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) A technique I developed quite naturally to help me make smooth transitions was to use a word or phrase from the next routine in the preceding one  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) It’s better to play to the host as though in a real conversation and let the audience listen in- which they are  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) I advise treating the studio audience like a nightclub audience because that’s the reason you’re doing television - to get them to come see you in a nightclub  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Evaluate every performance on: stage presence, concentration, delivery, material and lessons learned  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Bombing teaches you how badly you want to become a comedian. Because unless it’s a burning desire, you’ll quit when the consistent bombing becomes too much to take  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Obviously the audience has veto power signified by whether they laugh or not, but you-not them-retain the ultimate power to decide what they’re going to get the opportunity to laugh at  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) Walking back and forth also helps by creating the illusion that you are thinking of the routines on the spot, giving your performance a more spontaneous feeling  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) You can’t wait forever for an audience to get the joke, but you should give them at least two seconds to join in before you go on to the next one  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) When you take a pause before delivering your punch line, you will be using silence as a creative entity in itself  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes) You must study their deliveries, their use of their bodies, their timing, and their use of audio and vocal effects  (Franklyn Ajaye Quotes)
