On the “don’t be an asshole” episode of the podcast, Josh Spector, Jordan Cooper, and Chelcie Rice welcome Ryan Budds to the show to talk about his move to Los Angeles from Chicago, building relationships and being a jack of all trades in an industry town, why production assistant jobs shouldn’t be “underneath” you and the power of simply just asking people for things you would like to do.
In addition, we continue to discuss Josh Spector’s recent trend of “trolling” questions towards comedians, why lamenting that there’s not enough club work isn’t a solution, how comics have been ingrained to think of the crowd as someone else’s audience, and the difference in mindset between doing work-for-hire and pursuing a career.
