As newbie standup comedian how do i promote myself? from Wayne Manigo

I’ve been going at stand up for about two years now and I’m finally at that magical point where I have no idea what to do next. My goal now is to thoroughly read EVERYTHING while trying to get better at this craft.

Here are a couple of articles that you may find ineresting from Wayne Manigo via his Addicted to Comedy blog at Stagetime Magazine.

 

First: What is your comedy strategy?

Most comics today are single entities. They must promote themselves to get booked and create interesting content to get fans. This article is a good primer on what to ask yourself when creating content for the web through blogging, podcast, video and what-have-you.

Excerpt:

 

Excerpt: 

Have you ever been called a hater because you question something you didn’t understand? When I’m on the web, I will review a lot of websites, videos, and other social media updates from comedians. A part of me wants to learn what works for those who are trying to expand their fan base and develop their career. The business model for comedy keeps changing, and so has the strategy for building a career within it.

 

Remember the days when you needed a manager or an agent to get started in comedy?  Of course you don’t – the internet has eliminated the need for representation, at least until your career begins to take off. It doesn’t take much to set up accounts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. I encourage everyone to utilize these tools, but I’m having a problem with “Comedy Elephant Hunting.”  Yes, I made that term up! So many comedians are jumping on the bandwagon when it comes to promoting themselves via social media, but they’re using these tools without considering how to implement them in a useful manner. They post updates without considering their target audience, and attempt to attract everyone.

They call him the streak~
