Mike Tyson was the youngest Heavyweight Champion of the World at the age of 20. His past may have overshadowed his career, but I’ll never forget what he said when asked why he gets up at 4am every day to run. His reply, “Because I know the other guy is not doing it…”
As a comic, I want to get noticed by the public. After all, my success is determined by the following I can create more so than how funny I am. Don’t get me wrong, I still have to bring the funny, but more importantly, I need to reach the people that actually care! If a comedian tells a joke and no one is around to hear it, is the still joke funny?
Anyway, I want your help on this. When you watch a comic on TV or youtube or CD or see them on social networks like Facebook, what do you look for?
What keeps you interested?
How long of a chance will you give a comic before you change the channel?
What immediately turns you away from listening to a comic?
If a comic has their own web site, how are you hoping to be entertained there?
Tell me anything and everything that you think would be helpful.
