On the “extremely high standard” episode of the podcast, Josh Spector, Jordan Cooper and Chelcie Rice welcome Josh Homer back on the show post-hurricane to give a recap of how comedians in New York City handled the weather disaster, then we proceed to discuss choosing paths that would be most effective for the stage of your career, pure vanity projects, the fake feeling of progress and ultimately how to figure out what “good” is.
In addition, we explore how to leverage daily deal sites such as Groupon for self-produced comedy shows, why customer retention is key, using the platform as research for potential sponsors, and learning how to approach sponsors with the goal of building a long-term relationship over short-term gains.
