It's no secret that comedians need to be active on social media. Now more than ever, it's a vital part of being a comedian, more so that even writing every day. A one minute clip can literally chance your status as a comedian over night. I have worked with so many TikTok famous comedians who became headliners selling out comedy shows around the country!
The problem with social media, aside from the negative energy and time sucking, is that it constantly evolves. One day, you need to be posting on Instagram three times a week and then it changes to videos, then reels, etc. etc. Its hard to keep up on your own and hiring people to assist you doesn't always help. Not to mention the added costs and energy associated with hiring people to do work for you, which, sadly they will never prioritize as much as you will yourself.
All you can do it put your work out there consistently and hope for the best. I know there is irony in posting this on social media as well. If you want to support comedians or any art form, please follow their work. Here is a joke I posted today on Instagram as a throwback to one of my first jokes as a comedian.
