Tall Tips from the Experts


Mary Lou Williams

Tell the tale in deadpan style, to enhance the audience’s belief in your sincerity. The greater the contrast between deadpan style and over-the-top content, the greater the comedic effect.

 

Robert Cravalho

Venkata Ramana Dittakavi

Be crazy in your wild imagination. Enjoy your story and then you can speak from your heart. Create stories from your own experiences and never borrow from others.
