Connected Comedy Podcast Episode 39: No One’s Going To Feed You

July 6, 2013

Please subscribe and rate this podcast on iTunes!

On another “Spectorless” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer welcome Jim Mendrinos on the show to debate the shifting focus and evolution of the stand-up artform, structure versus subject matter, how the new generation of comics naturally will reject the old constructs, and that it’s nearly impossible to judge another person’s art.

In addition, we discuss Jim’s approach of teaching comedy writing, getting ahead at the later stages of your career, how the internet has allowed veterans to reinvent themselves and given access for the first time in the industry to do exactly what it is that you want.

Great episode!!!! Great insight into whats going on today with new talent and old. As a cop by day and comedian by night, who is retiring in 5 months, this episode, reiterates the questions that have been running through my mind lately
