The following PAR Score results are based on randomly selected stand-up comedy star performances from a variety of recognized stand-up comedy celebrities.

PAR (Positive Audience Response): Laughter, cheering or applause during a comedian's performance.

PAR Score: Ratio (percentage) of comedian's act filled with PAR (Performance time vs. measured PAR).

Headline level stand-up comedy material generates a minimum average of 18 seconds of laughter, cheering and/or applause for each performing minute (PAR Score 30 or 30% of each minute filled with laughter on average).

Note: PAR can increase for the exact same stand-up comedy material depending upon audience size. A larger audience usually means a greater PAR Score.
