More Nonverbal – Lewis Black

January 24, 2012

I forgot to add this link to the Week 3 Course Advisory.

Much of the success of many comedians depends on nonverbal communications. One example would be Lewis Black. This video clip about Starbucks is the “cleanest” delivery I could find and still demonstrate his use of nonverbal. His face and mouth expressions are key, as well as his voice changes (also his use of understatement). Also, the way he moves about the stage enhances his reactions to current events he finds absurd.

This is funny to me because I frequent Starbucks, calling it Conference Room S. Both Lee and Lori know this. Black played the CAC a few years ago on Valentine’s Day.
