On the “pre-Oscars lunacy” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper and Josh Spector look at tech startups as an example of how you should approach your comedy career, experimenting with different online platforms to find ones that suit your strengths, developing the culture of your audience, being obsessed with continually learning, and how everything you do on and off stage is your “product.”
Plus, we take questions involving marketing a humor book, connecting with comedy bookers by providing value and repurposing your online content for multiple platforms.

One thought on “Your Comedy Career Is A Startup Company (Podcast Ep. 59)”
Just finished listening to episode 59. Great info and I love the analogy about a start up. I am a year in and I use this site and podcasts as a way to learn the narketing side of the business. Thos episode was especially welcome because in my day job I am a manager for a New York City tech start up in the 3D print industry and I can tell you the focus of this episode was dead in. The dynamics are very very similar in terms of the kind of struggles and the focus prinarily on “product”. I have a background in showbands on bith the performance side and the business side so the trabsition to doing comedy has not been as much a cold start as it would be for someone else. But being in a start up has been just as valuable and I was excited to see the connection made as that has been how I am approaching things. Thanks for abother great episode.
