Stand-up comedy is the purposeful use of humor while telling personal thoughts, experiences, and vulnerabilities to an audience. This literature review will explore what constitutes humor, its benefits to psychotherapy, how it exists in drama therapy, applications of narrative therapy, and applying stand-up comedy to drama therapy. By combining stand-up comedy and drama therapy, the author will argue how this combination can provide an additional viewpoint for drama therapy techniques and an alternative and therapeutic aspect to stand-up comedy.
