On the “no solutions” episode of the podcast, Josh Spector, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer welcome road veteran Dale Jones onto the show to discuss the state of the comedy club business from a comic’s perspective, how clubs can shift with the changing landscape to have more sustainability, why it all can be fruitless without data showing what’s working and what’s not, and if audiences simply don’t trust the “comedy club experience” anymore.
In addition, we talk about the broadening definition of a what a comedy show is, how clubs in middle America can embrace tactics being utilized in Los Angeles and New York by understanding, embracing and being active in their local communities and thinking of themselves more as content companies than performance venues.
