Most comedians tend to “follow the herd” so to speak and focus on the development and delivery of an “adult” stand-up comedy act.
And there’s nothing wrong with that at all. The stand-up comedy act that any comedian chooses to develop is strictly up to them and what their own creative abilities will allow.
But most comedians don’t realize that there are tremendous advantages and opportunities available to talented individuals who are able to develop and deliver a clean stand-up comedy act that gets big laughs, such as:
Uniqueness. Because an overwhelming number of comedians focus on “adult” stand-up comedy material, focused on activities involving that which happens between the belly button and the knees…
Comedians who can deliver a clean stand-up comedy act that gets big laughs tend to strongly stand out among most other comedians.
Increased performing opportunities. Comedians who can only produce an adult stand-up comedy act are by default restricted to comedy club performances and comedy club type one nighters.
Comedians who can produce a clean stand-up comedy can work in the comedy club environment as well as any other entertainment environment such as the corporate market, the cruise ship market, etc.
Increased income potential. Because comedians with a clean stand-up comedy act can work outside the comedy club marketplace, they are also able to tap into the stand-up comedy performing opportunities that can pay very handsomely.
Comedians who work in the corporate type markets typically command 5-10+ times as much pay for a single performance than in the comedy club marketplace.

Again let me reiterate that is up to each comedian to determine the type of stand-up comedy they want to develop and deliver in their stand-up comedy act.
But I will also tell you that comedians who can develop and deliver a clean and funny stand-up comedy act are able to take advantage of all stand-up comedy markets and opportunities, not just the sliver that most comedians focus on which is the comedy club market.
