On Monday morning, August 28th, America’s Most Loved Comedian, Wali Collins, was on the Today Show teaching Jenna Bush how to do comedy.

We asked Wali: How do you teach people to be funny?

“It's the same thing as an art teacher,” he said. “You can't teach people to become great artist. You show them the tools needed to make a beautiful painting. And then it's up to the individual how they use those tools. The talent is in the choices that they decide that will affect to viewer. Same with comedy. The talent is in the tools the comedian chooses that will make the audience laugh.”
