Call Your Next Witness - When Standup and Jury Selection Meet (Mike Rabinowitz)
September 30, 2021
How similar are jury selection and performing stand-up comedy? This question has probably occurred to anyone who has ever selected a jury, particularly in a civil case where there is no judicial presence in the room. In this episode of <a href="https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/call-your-next-witness/id1552130914"><strong>Call Your Next Witness</strong></a>, we have the perfect guest to delve into this topic with us!
<span>Mike Rabinowitz is no stranger to being in front of an audience, whether he is selecting a jury, or headlining at a New York City comedy club as a stand-up comic. The similarities between selecting a civil jury and trying to entertain an audience as a comedian are striking, in that you have a captive audience, and you need to use the spoken word to engage them. Mike is uniquely qualified to opine on those similarities, having been a trial attorney AND a standup for several years. In fact, his experience as a trial attorney prompted him to try his hand at standup, which eventually resulted in Mike being a headlining comedian -- which is one of the most exclusive clubs there is. He offers some great jury selection tips as well - worth a listen to all trial attorneys!</span>
