On this week’s episode of the podcast, Josh Spector, Jordan Cooper and Chelcie Rice welcome Ally Bruener on the show to describe her recent encounter with the Cincinnati police while promoting her stand-up comedy at a local event.
It leads into a lengthy discussion about merchandise strategy for comedians and how to balance aligning it with your act versus creating something people would be willing to buy. In addition, we discuss the importance of having a web presence you control, the visibility conundrum on social networks, why content creation is key for comedians online, and a hearty scolding (as always) that e-mail matters!
