Comedy FAQ's and Answers by Dave Schwenson
Book DescriptionFrom going onstage during last call, to beating the open-mic system, to booking corporate gigs, this is the real guide to the world of stand-up comedy. Successful comedians and industry insiders share no-nonsense advice for every stage of a comic's career. The top names in the business - including Ray Romano, George Carlin, Christopher Titus, Weird Al Yankovic, Margaret Cho, and many others - share the lessons they learned the hard way, while club owners, talent executives, publicists, and others reveal what goes on behind the scenes. The author, a former network talent coordinator, covers it all: getting started, writing material, finding places to perform, making performances better, getting seen by the right people, coping with hecklers and "rough crowds," protecting your comedy material, getting an agent, creating a press kit, booking gigs, and much more. Readers will find tips for breaking into specialized areas such as comedy book publishing, the college market, corporate shows, merchandising, and writing for other comics. Anyone with dreams of making money as a comic will need this straight-talking guide.
