Can a comedian just do comedy?

by The Comedy Nerds on August 15, 2008

Busy ComicsBeing a comedian is hard.  Really hard.  What makes it even harder is that lately just being a good comic isn’t enough.  Now comedians have to be be good at more than just getting up on stage and making people laugh.

This week we look at the effects of this on the comedy world.  Are comics expected to do too much?  Is it watering down the overall product?   Is it still possible to do only one thing and still succeed?
