How to Get Booked

Posted by annadreambig on January 22, 2013 at 7:25 PM

Whoo! Breathe.

Okay here goes.

I book events months and months in advance, unless it's an open mic or whatnot. I also get a lot of private messages from comics from all over, surprisingly, asking me to put them in shows. What they don't understand is a lot of factors go into booking the few shows that I do produce.  I don't personally produce that many shows anymore because I'd rather eat glass. Also, I tend to book people more who show up to support me even when they're not performing themselves. Or who in the past made an effort to promote shows they were on if they lived in the area (or even if they didn't) I mean, why wouldn't I? It's a good way to stay on my mind.  Otherwise you have to be really, really funny so it doesn't matter how cool we are. I'm always going to take into account the intended audience of a show and book accordingly, so if you are more universally funny, even better. If you're alternative or dark or urban or any of those ridiculous labels I don't really subscribe to, I may still book you but appropriately for the target audience and probably not more than one of you in the same show. Unless I feel like it. Because I can do what I want. I have the freedom as a nobody to do that. This year I'm not going to care if people dislike my decisions. Anyway I just had to get that out of the way because I've been getting hounded lately just because my face is on a flyer here or there, of shows I'm only performing for.

I feel like an ass even writing this because I'm so not that important. And that's what I'm trying to get people to understand.

People need to remember that:

I'm in SYRACUSE.

NOBODY knows me.

I DON"T HAVE THAT MUCH PULL AS YOU THINK I DO.

I want you all to succeed too, because it helps the overall comedy scene. 

I'm not Oprah yo! Instead of waiting for me to put you on, you could just do your own thing homie.
