Just dicking about, no offence meant.
It's amazing how things have changed over just 10 years. Back then the Internet genuinely seemed like an exciting opportunity, not just for comedy but for writing in general. No one believes me but when I first wrote stuff on the Net I nearly felt like I was publishing; I'd write reviews for Channel 4's 4laughs website and when it was up there, I'd almost feel I was part of the biz. Now it's the opposite - you don't exist if you don't have 35576974 pieces of crap on line. I met a very good stand-up comedian Diane Shepherd and she said a lot of the work isn't writing (she has LOADS of material) but exploiting the media: FB updates, witty comments on Twitter every time anything happens, expansive Youtube channel etc. I know some 'experienced' (this is English for 'old') comedians and they agree: 20 years ago you wanna do Open Mic, they say 'Sure.' 10 years ago, you wanna do Open Mic and say you've got a Youtube clip, they'd say, That's AWESOME.' Now it's the reverse: Just for Open Mic they may wanna check out your credentials (How many 'followers' you got on Twitter? How many hits on FB? etc etc).
SM is right, the work should be performed in some way and if no one else will, do it yourself. I was originally into writing only and cut myself out of the performance side; then I just thought F**k it, I like my stuff, I'll give it a go. Mind you, this attitude has got me banned from one club and co-running another, so what the f**k do I know?
