Jonny recently attended a stand-up comedy show at a venue that seats a grand total of … 18 people. What did he learn from the experience that you can apply to your showrunning? Plenty.
First, Jerod gives a quick description of his favorite new show, and then Jonny describes how he committed the most seemingly amateur of mistakes during his 304th recording of Hack the Entrepreneur. (Don’t you dare laugh, because it can easily happen to you too!)
Then, Jerod and Jonny dive into this week’s main topic, discussing lessons about hosting a remarkable podcast that can be gleaned from how stand-up comedians do their work:
Define who your audience is and speak to them (dog or cat)
Size doesn’t matter (one is better than zero)
Pay attention to your venue
The importance of perspective
How to handle boos (and why gratitude should be part of your strategy)
