An agent is one of the most important people to have in your corner at certain stages of your comedy career, yet it's also one of the most misunderstood positions in the entertainment business. Understanding how representation fits into your business plan is crucial:

- How does one go about attracting an agent?
- What exactly does an agent do for you?
- What are the different types of agents, and what's the difference between an agent and a manager?
- What makes an agent decide who to represent and who to pass on?
- When is the right time to try to find an agent, and how do I keep them once I have them?

If you find yourself asking these questions... this workshop is not to be missed! In this intense 3-hour workshop aimed specifically at comedians looking to advance their careers, we'll discuss how to attract the best agents for your situation, who to submit to, what questions to ask and how best to present yourself in agent meetings to make sure you come off as a pro!

Seating is VERY limited - don't miss this unique opportunity!
