Stand-Up Comedy in the Internet Age — Pretty Much Pop: A Culture Podcast #106




 

Your host Mark Linsenmayer discusses how Internet culture has changed stand-up with three comedians: past Pretty Much Pop 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:

    I like how you mentioned that a great documentary would connect the feeling to the watchers. My best friend informed me a couple of days ago that he was looking for a stand-up comedy documentary we could watch for our friends’ gathering. He asked if I had thoughts on the best option to consider. I’m grateful for this enlightening article. I’ll tell him they can consult a comedy documentary website to see details about the documentary. http://justlikeusthemovie.com/
