is a newsletter about the business of being a comedian and / or humorous
speaker. To be more specific, it's
sharing information and advice. If you've checked out
website, you already know this is what I'm
all about. The idea behind my books, How To Be A Working Comic: An
Insider's Business Guide To A Career In Stand-Up Comedy, Comedy Workshop: Creating
& Writing Comedy Material for Comedians & Humorous Speakers, and Comedy FAQs And Answers:
How The Stand-Up Biz Really Works, comedy workshops, private
business seminars, and college courses in communications and public speaking is to offer insight
into the industry and help you build a successful career.
If you have not been to Dave's website or signed up for his newsletter,
you are missing out!!! I just invested an hour on his amazing content!!
Just signed up for his newsletter and have been reading the back issues
on the site! Great Stuff!!" Posted by Troy B.
love your blog. The material is just as relevant to speakers as it is to
comics!" - Posted by Lee P.
newsletter is emailed to you every week. The format is simple and
(hopefully) entertaining. After all, it's about comedy and also using
humor as a speaker! There's a FAQ And Answer segment where you can send in a question and I'll
do my best to find the answer. Even if you never have a question, you
can read about what other comics and humorous speakers are asking. For a few examples - click
you're looking to get on stage - whether it's an open-mic, comedy club,
festival, contest or speaker showcase - there's a link with each newsletter that will take you to a website for
details. This is information sent in by members of this list. In
other words, it's current and a great way for you to get the word out if
you're running the open-mic, club, festival, contest or showcase, OR if you just
want to share information with other comedians and speakers. The only thing I can't
do is promote individual shows - for instance, if you're playing at a
club or speaking at a seminar and want everyone to come see you. If I did, I'd never get off the
up now through this link!
you for your wonderful newsletter, Dave. I have been busy learning from
it every time you send it out. I appreciate that you want to help
people." - Posted by Carolyn O.
am always learning things here. Thanks for helping us new guys
out." - Posted by Joe O'D.
key to success in any business is networking. If you're looking for
a way to promote yourself and make new contacts, send in a joke for the Joke
of the Week segment. It doesn't have to be original - just
funny. If it's used in the newsletter I'll include links to your
website, Facebook, LinkedIn, youtube video, etc... It's a great way to build
your friends lists and promote yourself. Again - it's all about networking!
have been a fan of Dave's for years and have found the information in
his books solid -- some the best in fact for those who are serious about
moving forward in stand-up comedy, particularly in the highly
competitive comedy club market." - Steve R.
do I get from the newsletter? I'm glad you asked. When I
schedule a comedy workshop or business seminar, the dates are announced
first in the newsletter.
Then the information is sent out to newspapers, newsgroups, etc... There will also be
links for my books available at a discount price.
finally - to answer an important FAQ - I'll never share your
email address with anyone else!!! I can't stand it when sites do
that to me and I won't do it to you.
Dave... for the inspiration. Thanks also for assembling and
disseminating practical advice with real dollar value to struggling
people looking for work!" - Posted by Emily
