Jacob Williams has a self-made comedy resume ranging from performing on Late Night with Stephen Colbert to 8 seasons on Wild n Out and viral videos from America’s Got Talent. This rare interview with Jacob is an inspirational testament to what being funny can get you in show business. All of his success has boomed from being funny on the right stage at the right time. I hope comedians will hear this and stop overthinking “success” and just focus on getting funny first!

Listeners can expect to learn in detail about:

  • How to deal with stage fright
  • Pre-show rituals
  • Dealing with depression
  • How to get fame without a manager
  • Getting booed on stage
  • Booking Late Night with Stephen Colbert
  • Life at MTV's Wild n Out
  • How a psychology degree can help your comedy
  • Playing to your strengths
  • Prepping a set for Colbert
