When it comes to comedy, the most important skill to master is delivery. This is what distinguishes great comedians from mediocre ones. Most of the time, a comedian’s ability to evoke laughter from their audience lies solely in the way they deliver their comedy material. If the delivery is poor, then the comedy material can flop regardless of how great it is.
