Connected Comedy helps comedians grow their career.
The comedy industry has changed dramatically in recent years and I created Connected Comedy to help comics figure out how to build a successful career in this new environment.
What You Will Learn Here
Specifically, I share advice about three core concepts:
1. How To Build A Fanbase
The key to a successful comedy career is your ability to find, attract, and retain fans. I share tactics to help you identify where your potential fans are, how to connect with them, and turn them into your biggest asset.
2. How To Succeed In The Comedy Business
Whether it’s getting booked, finding representation, producing your own projects, or figuring out how to monetize your talent, I break down how to turn the laughs you get into actual financial success.
3. How To Get The Most Out Of Social Media
I’m sure you already use social media, but do you actually get anything out of it? I can teach you how to use social media to accomplish your goals and have a real impact on your career.

Who Runs Connected Comedy?
Connected Comedy was founded by Josh Spector (a.k.a me) in 2010.
I’ve spent nearly 20 years working in comedy marketing, production, and content creation with an emphasis on digital platforms. Content I’ve produced and/or marketed has generated more than 100 million views on YouTube and I’ve worked with such companies as New Line Cinema, Warner Bros. Television, Comedy.com and Freemantle Media.
I am currently the Managing Director of Digital Media & Marketing for The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, where I oversee digital strategy for The Oscars as well as the Academy’s year-round efforts. And yes, I was involved in the making of the biggest selfie in history.
If you’d like to know more about Connected Comedy or have any specific questions you’d like some help with, please feel free to email me.

I am a regular reader of the site and listener to the podcasts. I have tried to join the Connected Conedians closed group a few tines on Facebook. I hit the “join group” button and in a few days it reverts from request pending back to the join group button again. I have not had any problems joining other groups. Is there a criteria for joining this clised group. I have gotten an enormous amount out of your website and podcast and would like to be a part of this group as well. Thanks.
