The Rule of 9

June 14, 2018 by John Andrew Williams

I took a standup comedy course led by Alex Falcone, a Portland-based comedian. He had a rule: out of every nine jokes you come up with, 8 will be bad. You have to bust through those 8 jokes to get to that 9th. The goal changes from making something good, to simply making something.

What’s your creative rule?
