Expanding, or perhaps contracting, on ideas and observations that fuelled my short film “Jerry Generic: Modern Comedian“, I have created a handy cut-out-and-keep guide for spotting hacks.

Of course, it can be argued that I have simply rehashed an idea I had two, maybe even three, years ago. I don’t claim to be better than anyone, but in a world of observational comedy I made an observation.
