Mark discusses how Internet culture has changed stand-up with three comedians: past guests Rodney Ramsey (who co-owns the Unknown Comedy Club) and Daniel Lobell (host of Modern Day Philosophers and author of the Fair Enough comic), plus Dena Jackson (also a speaker on yoga and mindfulness and host of The Ego Podcast).
How does the existence of YouTube, social media, and virtual spaces changed the way comedians construct a set, relate to their fans, and make a living? We talk about story-telling vs. one-liners, repping your hometown, comedy cliques, surviving negativity, and more.
Some articles that go into these issues further include:
- “Is Social Media Ruining Comedy?” by Ian Crouch
- “Comedy from a Distance” by Misha Rajani
- “Laugh Out Loud, Virtually” by Shreya Veronica
- “How 5 Chicago Standup Comics Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Zoom” by Doug George
