This interview with Alton Walker is all about turning your show into a business. I lost count of all the tips and strategies he shares to help comics get booked immediately and frequently. The only catch is, YOU have to do the work. Are you willing to do that? Only time will tell…

  • The administrative work of comedy

  • Email etiquette

  • Tailoring emails to specific bookers

  • Google email extractor

  • Building an email list

  • Setting a price for your comedy

  • Getting gigs through eventbrite

  • Booking shows outside of the comedy club
