On the “all checks clear” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper and Chelcie Rice welcome Eric Yoder of the Funny Business Entertainment Agency to talk about how a booking agency works behind the scenes, what constitutes a good area/venue for a comedy event, the difference between marketing a monthly show and a full-time club, and in all transparency, how exactly an agency makes money.
In addition, we address the common complaints from comedians about bookers and vice-versa, the caveats of juggling being a comic and running a show/venue, why face time is huge in getting on someone’s radar, the line between persistence and annoyance, and how everything in the business ultimately comes down to trust.

Great interview with Eric Yoder. Good to get the booker’s perspective on the biz. Well done!
Really enjoyed being on the podcast guys. Hope comics gained some solid perspective from this. I’m always open to help answer questions or give info to anyone in need (regarding comedy, booking, etc)
