    Are there people who will critique jokes and give advice on maybe saying it differently?

  8. As co-producer of The Joke Gym open mic, I’ve met a lot of comedians who were new to Los Angeles (and a bit shocked at how big it is). This is a great article for anyone who wants to take on L.A.

  9. Great post Ryan! I’ve been in LA now 15 years. I’m happy with the progress I have made but I’m sure I could have made much more reading your post. Thanks for sharing your story.
