Just a quick note to my twitter friends out there. Hope all is going well out there people. I’ve been consumed lately with family stuff, and other side internet work that gives me some of that pocket money. But my heart is always in comedy and wanted to see if we can actually come up with a regular stable piece of content on this site that would fill a void.
So here’s the idea.
Many of us listen to the same shows/podcasts and share a love of the same raw kind of humor that attracts us.
If you’ve tried to search for something to do on a weekend, google is a crazy place. If you listen regularly to Opie & Jimmy or The Cumia Show or #Bennington, you’ll catch a comic that may be appearing in the NYC area, or you can hear them plug their shows. You can look at individual comedy clubs, sure, but that takes time too. So yeah, information everywhere.
Identifying the NEW and REGULAR comics that appear on our favorite shows and podcasts.
Tracking their weekend events (via their website/manager emails)
POSTING them for each weekend coming up.
We LOVE our comics, and some of them are horrible frankly at marketing themselves. Why not bring back “word-of-mouth” and provide a more organic way of finding where everyone is performing. If a comedy club wants to sponsor us, great! We’ll include them on a banner ad, or a featured spot. But let’s keep the conversation going and promote our friends and new funny people.
Where can I find the latest comedy calendar?
UPDATE: END OF MAY CALENDAR HERE
You are an idiot your missing a great comic!
Oops, let us know in the comments below who we’ve missed. If they aren’t well known, include which podcast/show they have appeared on. So far we have:
Big Jay Oakerson
Dave Attell[/one_third][one_third]Esther Ku
Keith Robinson[/one_third][one_third_last]Kelley Lynn
Luis J. Gomez
Rev Bob Levy
This is a horrible idea. Where’d you go to school?
sad face. *charlie brown sad music* *thinks of how that education went to waste*
Why do you always make everything negative?
Insecurity, and self-doubt are my strengths. May need to google schizophrenia too. Also should stop talking to myself. Dammit!
