The study aims to discover the types of speech acts used by stand up comedian on Metro TV,to describe the way of performing speech acts used by stand up comedian on Metro TV and to explain the reason why those types of speech acts used by them. The research was a qualitative descriptive one by design covering data display, data reduction that consists of selecting, and categorizing and drawing conclusionps. The instruments of data collection were observation and transcript.. The sources of the data were taken from stand up comedy videos downloaded from youtube. There are five videos fro three comedians, Cak Lontong, Abdel Achrian, and Jui Purwoto. The study found that there were only four types of speech acts used by stand up comedian on Metro TV namely, representative, directive, expressive and commisisive. Declarative wasn’t used by them. In performing speech acts, there are two ways used by stand up comedian on Metro TV, namely direct and indirect speech acts. There are some reasons of the use of speech acts by comedians in the way they are. Cak lontong used asserting forms of representative speech acts dominantly because in his performances he often spoke in confident way to convince his audiences as if his words were true. In this way he could lead his audiences’ mindset and then executed his jokes smoothly. Abdel and Jui Purwoto used informing forms of representative speech acts more dominant because they gave some information to his audiences first and then filled their minds with some information about what they would talk about later. Since Abdel and Jui in almost of his stand up comedy shows often describe his personal or someone experiences. Different context influences the use of different types of speech acts. In stand up comedy shows, the comedian's performance principally consists of a succession of short joking stories and one-liners that are usually presented in a monologue without interruptions by the audience. The way in which the audience can participate in stand-up comedy is by smiling, laughing, and applauding. They used representative speech acts more dominant than other types of speech act because the type of representatives tends to state what the speaker believes to be the case or not. In the case of stand-up comedy, it means, indirectly, the comic makes statements which he assumes are true and hope that the audience would be affected by those statements. It is match with the function of Stand up comedy to entertaining, informing, criticizing, and insinuating. Thus, there are only four types of speech acts used by stand up comedians in his performances, namely representative, expressive, directive, and commissive, and it is the lectures of pragmatics should develop the theory of speech acts used by exemplifying the theory with the TV program discourse by which the lectures can be enlivened and student’s interests in research can be aroused.
