Trying to make money doing stand-up or writing? Struggling to get your comedy side-hussle to pay better? Does it feel like you’re spinning your wheels in Austin, wondering if you should move to LA or New York? Maybe you feel like others are shooting past you on the ladder to comedy stardom and leaving you behind.
Scott Dikkers, the founder of TheOnion.com will show you how to turn your comedy into a career. Join him for a special one-day-only workshop, January 18th from 12pm-4pm.
In this Comedy Business Workshop, Scott will arm you with tools, tips and tricks to give you an unfair advantage in the comedy game. He’ll give you:
• 7 common roadblocks that are holding you back from making it big with your comedy
• 5 unsung ways to make money with your comedy right now, from Austin
• the secret to finding loyal, paying audiences
• how to apply for (and win) the big comedy jobs
You’ll have the chance to meet with Scott and get him to personally critique your career and your work. Scott’s former students have started with zero comedy experience and gone on to win dozens of Emmy Awards for shows like “The Daily Show,” “The Colbert Show,” and “Saturday Night Live.” They’ve written number-one best-selling books and built millions of social media fans. Scott will share with you some of the same industry secrets used by others to achieve meteoric success.
***In addition to the workshop, this purchase includes a 2-hour breakout session with Scott after the class. Students who seek more personalized feedback may ask questions and present their writing/stand-up to Scott to gain further insight.***
