Craig Anton breaks down the art of writing a stand-up comedy set in this clip from “I Am Comic”

In this clip from Jordan Brady's documentary on stand-up comedy, I Am Comic, we see Craig Anton (original member of MADtv, as well as the dad on Phil of the Future and voice in Tom Goes to the Mayor) break down the art of writing a set, from set-up to punchline to tag to bit to chunk to set.

I Am Comic screens tonight at the Cinefamily's 2nd Annual Comedy Festival in Los Angeles, June 18 at Just For Laughs Chicago, July 16 at the Just For Laughs Film Festival in Montreal, and is currently available on demand for Showtime subscribers.

Earlier: I interviewed director Jordan Brady at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival after seeing it for myself.
