  • Stand up Comedy Invades Podcasting

    by Nikki Glaser and Adam Spiegelman

    Podcasting has changed the face of stand up comedy. It seems that every comic has a podcast. Why is that? Why is it important for comedians to reach out to a new audience once, maybe twice a week? We’ll talk to the biggest stand up broadcaster about why it’s been important to take their act out of the clubs and onto portable media devices.

    Key Points
    1. Broaden your fan base without leaving your house.
    2. How much plugging is too much?
    3. Podcasts allow you to open up your personal life to an audience before they see you on stage. Make performing more personal.
    4. Better than late night TV in terms of packing a club.
    5. Sell your DVD’s and t-shirts to a whole country at once instead of one comedy club at a time.
    6. Use your Podcast to help launch and sell your sitcom idea.

From photos, personal tales, infographics, video sketches, top ten lists and everything else in between, this session will teach you the concepts on how to create laugh-out-loud content to take advantage of the viral loop and expose your blog to new audiences.

    Key Points

    2. You will learn several easy-to-use "comedy formulas" that anyone in any niche (no matter how boring you think it is) can master to churn out funny ideas and transform them into finished products.
    3. You will learn techniques to seed your content on social networks, increase click-throughs on your posts and compel others to share and spread your humor.
