This option will also help you a lot because this is what people will use to watch your video, so many people or viewers may stumble into your video on YouTube , Instagram or others and screw pass or may decide to read descriptions first.
Am not saying you should lie or create falsely or deceptive description because this will ruin your image and make your viewers never to return to your channel or timeline. Create real, true, sincere and attractive description on your videos that will attract viewers to watch your videos.
6) Create a comedy video brand
What is a brand
A brand according to oxford dictionary is a type of product manufactured by a particular company under a particular name. You need to understand that as a comedian, your videos is among your brand and it should be taking very serious. You should always deliver all your video under same name no matter the type of video.
You can also generally use your comedy or stage name as the video brand name for example if your stage name is Mr joker, you can use Mr joker comedy as your brand name for your videos, this will always let your fans and your viewers know your are the one that did the video even do you didn’t act or without them watching it.
Your comedy brand name should also be your YouTube channel name and it should be crested on all your videos on the right side top corner or at the extreme bottom end.
7) Advertise your video handle, channel or accessible name on your live shows and performances
As a comedian of any type or kind, they is a high probability you may one day host show, you are already hosting shows or you will be invited to perform in different shows.
Always remember to personally use your mouth to advertise your channel, video handle name or any accessible identity in which people can use to access your videos after your performance or during your performance. I will recommend using this method as a closing remark immediately before you leave the stage. You can say words like ” you can watch my videos at your channel or handle name on your video hosting platform like YouTube.
8) ADVERTISE YOUR VIDEOS AND CHANNEL USING BANNERS AND LOCAL MEDIAS
You can advertise your channel, videos and video handle especially if you are using g YouTube which is the most famous and popular video hosting platform with banners and local medias.
You can decide to contact friends who are hosting shows to please crest your YouTube channel name or your hosting platform name under the sponsored part of the banner, this will increase your fame and also attract a lot of viewers
9) Create unique and funny videos
They is no shorter way to success and fame than being unique. Creating unique videos might be difficult but very important. Unique videos are those videos format that people hardly do, we have seen so may young comedians climb to the top of the YouTube and video Chain without much advert and promotion just because their videos are very unique and funny.
Don’t create videos because some one made it to fame with that type of video, you should create video because you have a unique idea to push out to the public.
Think, think well before you create videos and always make sure your video format is unique and always remember to be unique yourself as a comedian even on stage.
10) USE MUSICIANS, ACTORS AND FAMOUS PEOPLES NAME TO DO VIDEOS
This is another method to get a lot of views on your videos, musicians, actors and famous politicians or business men and woman have a lot of fans, audience and followers, you can decide to turn their identity and name to your own favour by attracting the attention of their followers and audience with your videos about them.
So many comedians do make short and funny videos with the identity of famous musicians, actors and others and get a sky rocket to fame immediately.
This won’t just attract the attention of the famous person, it will also attract the attention of their fans and followers to watch your video.
11) USE FAMOUS CELEBRITIES AS CASTS IN YOUR VIDEO
Its not just enough to use their name, you can also take your step forward by using them self in the video. You can decide to contact a famous music star or movie star or fellow comedian who is more famous than you, make video together under your brand name and watch how the views grow very fast. You will get a combined view of both your fans and his or her fan and it will increase the view rapidly.
In fact this is one of the fasted way to get more views and fame on your comedy videos but it is not easy because it may cost you a lot of money because most of this famous celebrities will charge you a lot especially when you are not close to them. It will be better if you have one of the famous celebrities in any entertainment field as a friend, this will reduce charges and may even go for free.
12) MAKE STANDARD AND GOOD QUALITY VIDEOS
Yes , this is my last point. You should always remember to make good quality and standard videos, this will always attract viewers to your videos and channel. Nothing chases away viewers more than a low quality and sub standard videos, no one want to watch a video that is not clear or that has bad sounds and this will also give people the impression that you are not serious or that you are a beginner and not professional which will have very great negative effect on your videos.
Gone are the days when where only talent and funny videos takes comedians to stardom, this days, Good quality, uniqueness and promotion also adds as great advantage to your success in your journey to stardom and fame as a comedian.
