Stand-up comedians are the professional performers who tell jokes and perform comical acts in front of a live audience, usually speaking directly to them. These comedians usually recite humorous stories, jokes and one-liners to the audience, pausing in between for a few seconds to allow for audience reaction. Stand-up comedy is very popular in comedy clubs, bars, colleges and theaters, and the comedians may use props, music, and magic tricks to make their routines more interesting.
