Using Comedy to Humanize Characters and Hook Listeners in Audio Fiction

Comedy is tough. Everybody knows this. But it’s also one of the most popular elements in fiction. If you can make listeners laugh, you can say almost anything and keep them coming back for more. Comedy can humanize characters. It can break through a listener’s prejudices and assumptions. But comedy is about more than just the words the characters say. Voice actor delivery and choice of music and sound effects all work together to achieve that ultimate goal – your listeners, wearing their earbuds, laughing out loud to the puzzled stares of onlookers.
