about

This step-by-step guide demonstrates how to easily create a successful comedy group. By following the techniques in this book, actors will be able to do an end run around casting directors by casting themselves in their own group’s productions. Create a Comedy Group is filled with practical advice, production information, resource guides, tips, short cuts, and amusing war stories culled from the author’s fifteen plus years of experience in running her own group. By covering every aspect of forming and running a comedy group, this book shows how to develop a profitable acting career by writing, touring, and selling stage shows as comedy product for Cable TV, Network TV, and for film. The author’s own experience of creating a group led to her winning a New York Critic’s Drama Desk Award for starring in her group’s Off-Broadway show El Grande de Coca-Cola, which was televised as an HBO comedy special. Next, Bullshot Crummond was televised by Showtime and then produced as a feature film by George Harrison’s HandMade Films under the title Bullshot. Based on her own experience, the author also explains how an actor can go on to leverage a successful solo career using the exposure and experience gained from creating a comedy group.
