Yes it would be worthless. And it should be something not passed off as experience. It should be admitted up front.

Free ads from 50 years ago in fantasy land on the radio promoting a haunted house. THIS IS NOT A TOURING SHOW.

My lord stop.

Last year is hardly 50 years ago. And I will stop with the update below:


Well I’ve decided that I will take Danny and Minpro’s advice and from now on start my own threads to share information. They said they wouldn’t interfere there so we shall see. It would certainly stop some of the bickering back and forth that has taken place the past couple of months. I do apologize to all those that had to put up with it. I take full reasonability for my part in the derailment it has caused and I’m sorry for my bad behavior. Maybe I can return to being my real self now and start sharing some helpful advice soon on my own thread. Thanks everybody.

I will show the EXACT same restraint you have in the other threads Tom. Sound fair?

Good for him, though I don't think he'll be able to restrain himself, lol. Time will tell...

Oh no he won't. He will start his own thread, nobody will care and he will be RIGHT BACK here derailing every thread.

No, he'll get some of the people here that want the general, basic feel-good, rah-rah stuff, or those that want to operate on the cheap. It will be general business advice and perspective as always and not entertainment business-specific info or insights. As he's said members aren't stupid and will decide the type of info their business truly needs.

I'm back . . . .
Sorry about not chiming in earlier. The Café stopped notifying me there were new posts on this thread so I thought it was dead.

Full disclosure, I am being coached by MindPro.

I have decided to postpone any 4-walling in smaller (3000+) towns for now. I am in the process of starting a residency (2-wall) at a local hotel. So far I have gotten my photos done and collected. I have built a website ( http://HeresKerry.com ) and gotten business cards made. I have also gotten a second line so as not to mix up client calls.

Raleigh area has more than 145 hotels. I have gone to each website of a 3 star or higher and collected data to include the number of beds, meeting room number and size, dining and bar, the promotions director's name and contact info. I will be proposing to them a free staff party entertainment for the holidays. These are usually in January.

BTW, tell me what you think of the website! It still needs work, but I am pleased with it. http://HeresKerry.com

A little early to make that call I would say. But in the end I genuinely hope you get a show / arrangement you are happy with. If you manage that, it will be.

In reality it can be found out pretty quickly if the money is well spent.

Well, I mailed 7 of the larger hotels in the area for a free staff holiday arty show. I got 2 bites and one no! I then emailed 7 other hotels, but have only received one negative response. I can get good video and referrals from these holiday parties. I will also try for a residency in these hotels in Jan-Feb time frame.

I will continue to contact all the hotels, convention centers, event planners and DJs in the coming year.

Sounds good. What style of show are you wanting your residency to be?

I will be doing a mixture of stand-up comedy and comedy mentalism. I just got a gig for this Thursday! A lunch meeting.

That’s great! If all goes according to plan I’ll be doing some public “traveling” shows in late February and March as well. *fingers crossed*
