Jokeless is, at its core, an opportunity and a challenge for stand-up comedians to break free of the bonds of the punchline. In the confines of the comedy show, comics need frequent laughs in order to measure their worth as performers. Sometimes, however, there are stories that comedians want to share that can appeal to audiences on a deeper level than what is acceptable on the comedy stage. Some stories touch the heart, some wring tears, some evoke irreverent laughter.
That is where Jokeless comes in – comedians and audiences connecting on a level beyond the punchline.
