On the “bad listener questions” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice, Josh Spector and Josh Homer welcome community member Steven Padilla of the Comedy Scene in Houston website onto the show.

This week we continue followup on the internet vs. television fame debate, learning from the biggest YouTube personalities, why someone’s first taste of success drives motivation and how comedians can sell tickets to their shows effectively online for themselves. Also, we discuss Louis C.K.’s career path, how he exploits opportunities to gain knowledge and whether he could duplicate his success had he just started doing stand-up now in 2012.

As usual listening to the podcast was a treat. I also came away with useful knowledge. My favorite line was during a discussion about Luis CK and how he exploited opportunities to gain knowledge which is a long term gameplan not advice for those looking to be overnight celebrities. To answer the last question as a female comic who has worked my day job in a male dominated environment men are dicks. Use your wit to fight back,don’t complain,and don’t sleep with anyone of them.
