What is the best approach for a fellow comic to take of they want to be booked on your show(s)? 🤷🏻♀️
And just for fun 💁🏻 let’s say that the random comic wanting to be booked has been consistently doing at least 4-5 open mics/week, for the last 5 weeks or so (as well as 2+ years doing about the same amount of mics before their 3 years momlife hiatus) so you have (**or have had plenty of opportunities to get**) an idea of their “comedy”/worthiness. 👋🏻
1 🤷🏻♀️Do they wait to be asked by you once you deem them worthy (and/or/perhaps you get over your awkward/anti-social insecurities/ego to get the nerve to approach someone you may not know super well and risk them declining the very generous and humbling offer)?
2 🤷🏻♀️ Do wait for them to get the ball/ovaries to take the initiative and hustle for their “art”/”career”/”own fucking shit,” approach or privately (fb/text/phone call?!) contact you, and politely ask if you have a 5-10 min spot available for them in the next 2-3 months? Or something similar. You get it.
PLEASE 🙃 share your opinion/perspective on how you run your show – AND/OR – what “rules” you believe there are in the entire Comedy World (or at the very least local comedy communities like Austin Comedy)!
I, at the very least, w
comedian’s ideas on how they perceive our shared comedy world! Conversations (even in a social media thread type way), are fun! 👻
I mean, perhaps we could all learn something from any convo this query produces, and become stronger as a hilarious and diverse comedy scene AND a comedian/human?! 🤷🏻♀️
Yay Comedy! 🙋🏻🙆🏻💁🏻
