Nobody wants to be a hack.
I am making this thread for us newbs.
There are certain jokes/things that I would like to put in my act that walk the thin line between "hack" and "inspired by"
I need clarification from the internet before action.
Does incorporating musical instruments into one's act make them a hack for ripping off Galifianakis, Sandler, Conchords, and Martin (Demetri and Steve)?
I've seen many comics do the "quick impressions" bit a la Galifianakis, Kyle Cease, etc.......I've even written a few for my act. If one does the whole structure the same (say title, repeat title, 2 seconds, *audience laugs at how stupid it is*)
Is it hack?
