Perth born James Masters cut his comedy teeth in Vancouver, Canada. A hot room, a serendipitous moment, and before James knew it, he was a professional Canada-based comedian, albeit a little rougher around the edges than today’s Australia-based comic.

In this podcast episode you’ll hear how accents and cultural differences are an early comedians advantage, and create a shroud of forgiveness unique to ‘foreign’ comedians. James also shares how to ‘write stand-up like a Nazi’, his 1:6 ratio of great to crap content, how he remembers his sets, word economy, and the importance of self promotion.
