Belly laughs, giggles and LOLs are definitely in your future if local comedian Howard Hall is in the room. And it’s not as easy as you’d think to get the whole room laughing!
Hall says there is a science to comedy. For every move he makes, he is analyzing the crowd, picking up on their behaviors and preparing to adjust his sketch at the drop of a hat if the audience isn’t responding well. With a strong comedic strategy at hand, Hall is working to revitalize the comedic scene in Baton Rouge by sharing what he’s learned with up-and-coming comedians.
