Some Comedy Festival Insights

Posted on 12 May 2014

Melbourne Comedy Festival comedians reveal what it’s really like behind the scenes

According to the festival director, Susan Provan, only about half of the acts break even. That means that after the 10 per cent who get all the big crowds, the remaining 40 per cent lose money — or, as she calls it — are “investing in their career”.

Make sure if you are doing comedy, you genuinely love it. If you make it about fame and fortune, you will break your heart.

Peace and kindness,
