On the “self-indulgent” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer provide context on the tone of the last series of shows by sharing their own stories and current career initiatives. We discuss why a national TV credit doesn’t really change anything, being prepared for a bump in visibility, building a proof of concept, creating opportunities for yourself and why you don’t have to be beholden to anyone.
In addition, we debate why comedians tend to shy away from writing for a specific interest group, how creating content keeps yourself in other people’s top-of-mind, why building a personal network can reap rewards in the oddest of ways and ultimately, why the metric of “success” doesn’t have to be mainstream fame.
