BUSINESS OF COMEDY WORKSHOP
at PASADENA/HOLLYWOOD COMEDY
Business of Comedy can be daunting, frustrating and downright maddening. You may have a strong set that kills in front of crowds but find yourself ignored, treated badly and without a consistent flow of jobs or bookings in the calendar!
The secret that no one wants to talk about is that getting booked and developing your career has very little to do with "being funny". Your success in this industry will depend largely on whether or not you understand the business side of comedy.
You must learn and leverage the tools that will put the power back into your hands. Beyond going to overcrowded open mics with a bucket raffle system (that's actually rigged) or submitting to comedy festivals and never getting in, or entering comedy competitions that cost you money.
Let's give you some actionable tools to help you build your career!
Workshop will cover ...
-Techniques and tools that will get you booked
-How to make yourself essential in a crowded industry
-How to stand out from the crowd to ensure you can get booked
-Strategies for getting an agent/manager
-Ways to make money in comedy
Sunday, November 7th at PASADENA COMEDY 11:00am-12:30pm
Tuesday, November 9th at HOLLYWOOD COMEDY 7:30pm-9pm
