It's often surprising to learn that many of the most successful comedians working in the business today DON'T make their money at the comedy clubs... but rather earn their biggest paychecks performing at luncheons, retreats, parties and many other sorts of corporate events! The world of corporate comedy is a lucrative one, with some comedians making anywhere from a few hundred dollars a day to over $100,000 PER GIG... but it's also a world that comes with its own set of rules, and its own specific comedy needs. In this workshop, you will learn the skills necessary to become a corporate comedian, and how you can market yourself by finding your unique niche in an expanding market. Topics covered will include different types of corporate gigs, how and where to get booked, how to price yourself appropriately, and how to market yourself to earn top dollar!
