I’m an avid podcast listener and comedy fan, so the Comedian’s Comedian Podcast is one of my favourites. I find it fascinating to listen to comedians talk about their craft, and in one episode, the comedian Nick Doody was talking about his love for stand up and how it allowed him to talk about anything he wanted. The way he phrased it really resonated with me:
Dealing with these kinds of issues in the classroom is a tricky balancing act. There are so many factors involved and it is necessary for the teacher to have a really good grasp of their teaching environment for it to be done successfully, but if it can be done why wouldn’t you?
If you want to listen to the interview with Nick Doody, click here. It has nothing to do with ELT, but it’s very interesting. And here’s a video of him doing his stand up. It’s very NSFW.

We can always talk about travelling, health (be careful with eating habits, though), clothes… So much more fun. Not!
Yes, Thiago, talking about those subjects once is fine, but after a while, it becomes a grind!
For teachers and students.
