On the “overbooked number of participants” episode of the podcast, Josh Spector, Jordan Cooper and Chelcie Rice welcome community member Tyler Meznarich onto the show as well as introduce Josh Homer as a regular co-host for our roundtable of comedy, marketing and business-related topics.
This week we completely rip apart stand-up comedy contests, what goals and expectations comedians should have participating in contests, and why contests may be a symptom of “lazy marketing” by both clubs and comics. Also, we ask whether or not getting on TV is overrated and how the path of success for comedians is getting hazier in this time of industry disruption.
