Hollywood, CA, September 25, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Comedy Workshops has announced the release of Comedy Career in a Box, the first fully-interactive DVD set made specifically for aspiring comedians, speakers, writers, actors and anyone who wants to make money from being funny.
Judy Carter, author of Standup Comedy: The Book (Dell Publishing, 1989) and The Comedy Bible (Simon and Schuster, 2001), produced the six-hour DVD package while using the same techniques found in her own Hollywood-based Comedy Workshops.
"For every person who has studied with us and became successful, I always knew there were hundreds more across the country who could also do great things in the world of comedy, but didn’t have the resources. That’s where Comedy Career in a Box comes in.”
Comedy Career in a Box focuses on the joke-writing process, performance techniques and potential career paths for comedians. The four-disc package also features 18 Hollywood Heavy-Hitters, including club bookers, agents and producers, who divulge industry secrets that enable comics to avoid career pitfalls, maximize their opportunities and make money from being funny.
“If you tried to contact these industry professionals yourself, you’d be hard-pressed to get a word out before their assistants hung up the phone,” Carter said. “With Comedy Career in a Box, the viewer gets to hear these heavy-hitters speak candidly about what it takes to really make it – from negotiating contracts to finding representation and starting a career in television – it’s all there.”
