Quit questioning yourself so much and just do something. You can worry about the minutiae to death. Almost every good podcast started out with a different concept/conceit/topic, and then morphed into the thing that it is now. Yours won’t be any different. Just make stuff, and then step back and evaluate it later. Take pleasure in the making.
So well put. This the best and only advice anyone looking to do comedy (or get into any creative field) needs. Just. Get. Started.
How to Do Creative Work:
Sorry, Mom, I’m pretty busy tonight. How about this weekend? Also, this a very weird use of Tumblr’s “Ask Me a Question” feature.
CollegeHumor is looking for some funny, hardworking Editorial interns for the fall semester!
Duties include writing articles, captioning pictures and videos, and actively participating in writers meetings with the staff.
In order to apply, please create a CollegeHumor account at collegehumor.com/signup and submit one complete article in the CH style. Once you’ve done that, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your article, your resume, a simple cover letter so we know a bit about you, and three additional article pitches.
Applicants must be available to work 2-3 days per week out of our NYC office.
If you’re interested in writing for CollegeHumor, but don’t live in NY, don’t worry! We always accept freelance submissions.
