Comedians have a lot of responsibilities to grow and maintain a career in entertainment. What is their job vs what they do; is where every performer should sit down and figure out. A comedian’s job is getting their business up and running. Then, maintaining that business. Learning how to manager their time, money and people surrounding opportunities. What comedians do, well, they tell jokes. They write, they perform. These things a comedian does, but it is not their job.
A comedian’s job tasks and responsibilities is required for longevity. A Comedian writing and tell jokes everyday all day will only get so far, then maintain that career for so long. It is a business after all. The idea is to look at this career as a business. As if the comedian opened up a Donut shop. No matter how good those Donuts are, if they do not know how to run a business correctly, it will fail and close. As a business owner of a life career, it is the responsibility of the comedian to know their job.
Because what they do, is write jokes and perform. This is the gift, the payment for being an amazingly hard working business person. These are the donuts a comedian can eat all day every day for keeping their doors open because there is a successfully ran business. When performing, setting up material, be an artist. Be the creative release that helps a comedian get through their day. Off stage, before the stage and after the stage, that is a business. Be successful and earn the payment of performing.
