On the Wings of Laughter with Comedian Eddie Brill
What it takes to make it in competitive stand-up comedy, and how the entertainment/performing arts industry will emerge from this complete Covid shutdown.
Today we blend some revealing truth with a lot of laughter. On the Ides of last March the lights Broadway went dark. Swiftly across this Covid-stricken nation, shows did not go on and the entertainment/performing arts industry vanished from our culture.
How long can show biz and its performers endure the shut down? What are the creative solutions? How will the performing arts re-emerge? Host Bart Jackson brings into the spotlight renowned standup comedian Eddie Brill. For 17 years, Eddie was the warmup comic for the David Letterman’s Late Show, and for more than a decade served as the show’s talent coordinator. And while we have Eddie shackled to our studio, he will pull back the curtain and share what it takes to make it as a professional comedian, how to deal with agents, and what kind of laughter we need in our lives. Tune in and hear intriguing personal tales of comedy’s kings, past and present.
