    Hey, I haven’t tried all of them yet but I really like Workflowy. I started playing with it yesterday and I can already see how useful that will be for organizing all of my jokes by categories…which will then help me build my set lists.

    I’ve tried doing that with Word, separating jokes by topics, creating a table of context, but it’s still a mess. You end up with this enormous Word doc that you have to scroll through and you still can’t find anything. Workflowy is all collapsible. Also, I like that it’s on the internet, so I can get to it on any computer, rather than emailing a huge file to myself. You recommended Evernotes for that, but I think this is much better. So, thank you.

    I agree with Derik. I used to carry around a Flash drive with Word docs on them and it was a terrible system. I am going to spend tonight organizing those docs in Workflowy. Thanks!

    I use some of those tools, although I use MailChimp for my email newsletter (also free and great).
    I also recently discovered SpringPad, which is an organizer that allows you to gather sites, product info, videos, whatever, either offline or online. You can email it and it’ll add a note to your workspace, and there are apps for Android and iPhone. Interesting stuff.
    LaffQ is one of my favorite discoveries- it’s a great scheduling widget you can use for Facebook fan pages, a website or even just as standalone tool. Easy to use. For reference, mine is at laffq.com/andyshawcomedy

    Yeah I’ve been using my gmail to organize jokes, so I signed up for workflowy. We’ll see how it does. Thanks for the list! A lot of useful info.

    Josh,
    As always, you constantly prmomote excellent tools to help with the business of comedy. Thanks again for all you do. I love evernote, and use it all the time ! Still working as a cop, and a comedian, I need every tool I can get to keep notes and ideas on the go. And I have to keep in constant contact with my audience. I will try aweber and instapaper.

    I’m the developer of LaffQ.com, a web site that lets comedians keep track of their calendar, so I thought I’d plug it here. I’m a comedian myself, and I eat my own dog food (computer nerd talk). You can export your calendar to your own web site, your smart phone, and your Facebook page. It’s free, so give it a shot.
