As ironic as this will sound, it's true — there's nothing funny about the comedy business. It's a life of rejection for the comedian by day and laughter for others by night. How do you find the strength to carry on making others laugh when no one cares about how hard your life has been up to that point?
That's the beginning of the intersection between comedy and business. It's the grind: the pure hustle, the constant rejection, and the need to show up regardless. So if you've ever thought comedians have it funny, wait until you hear Elon Gold talk about his biggest rejections or Jason Ciment reflect on the travails of agency life.
