Please subscribe and rate this podcast on iTunes!

On the “burning bridges” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer welcome J-L Cauvin on the show to talk about the art of blogging as a comedian, why sharing honest experiences is important, how the expectation of success can ultimately cause your failure, and taking the training wheels off your comedy career to get down to serious work.

In addition, we discuss the comprehensive degradation of live stand-up, how the middle class levels in comedy has crashed over the past few years, why comedians tend to treat online content as a second class, and dealing with the lack of incremental growth in your career.

This is a circle jerk of 4 has-been, awful, failed comedians. If these guys were funny, then they would get booked. Um, duh!
