Resource: Stand-Up on a Cruise Ship?

March 25, 2011

Now that the comedy boom of the eighties has died, the stand-up scene is a little less choked with people looking to make a quick buck in comedy. The fact of the matter is, if you want to make a ton of cash, stand-up comedy is one of the most difficult, slow, and soul-crushing ways to do so. For every Dane Cook there are thousands of people that can’t earn enough to eat, much less live with any dignity doing stand-up.

As a result, it’s very common for stand-up comics to have a day job, or other source of income. But we are always looking for a way to monetize the thing we love doing most: telling jokes. That’s why I held my judgement in check when I came across this article about stand-up comedy gigs on cruise ships. It sounds like something I wouldn’t enjoy, but definitely something to think about if you want to make some decent dough doing the craft.

Check out the article here.

Have a great weekend!  Thanks to Phil Moorhead for making me aware of this gold parody of those annoyingly agile Parkour crews.
