Sharing marketing tips for comics is the one and wonderful Tracy DeGraff. After penning her first book, “Laugh Anyway Mom”, Tracy took classes at The Second City in Chicago hoping to take her stories to the comedy stage.
Today, she joins us to share insights on what has worked (along with a few things that didn’t) on her way to creating her one woman show. She emphasizes the need to pave your own P.R. way in order to sell tickets, bring awareness, and earn money as a comedian or speaker.
