On the “obsessive compulsive” episode of the podcast, Josh Spector, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer discuss figuring out how many people are truly your fans, pivoting your strategy based on data, developing a fanbase in industry towns versus on the road, why the drawing power of TV-credited comics is vastly overestimated, and what comedy managers can learn from music labels and concert promoters.
In addition, we poke fun at delusional comedians who post on Facebook about “killing” (when they really didn’t), the difference in treating comedy as a hobby versus a career, and how no matter what you do, it should always have a definable purpose.
