Hi Working Comic Fans,
Sorry for the craaaazy delay. I’ve been MIA for about a month now. For the last three weeks of May I was travelling Europe with my girlfriend because I’m a monogamous wealthy jew and THEN I had three Socially Inept roast shows in a row. We had one big show at Cobb’s Comedy Club in San Francisco on June 6th followed by two great shows in Los Angeles on June 13th and 14th.

Anyway – back to business – in this episode, I interviewed Tyler Smith, the producer of the “Dope Show.” The Dope Show is a comedy show where comics do their sets, get high, and then do them again. Tyler’s show is prolific in the Pacific Northwest and he is able to MAKE A LIVING on the money he makes selling tickets. In my opinion, this is pretty much the dream for a comedian, so there’s definitely a lot of cool stuff to learn. We talk about how the show started, marketing tactics he uses, and how he sells thousands of tickets per year. ENJOY!
