Well, it’s official. I’ve earned my first dollar from comedy. Actually, I earned my first dollar plus twenty more. I had my first ever paid gig and walked away with $21 for 12 minutes of my time. That’s $1.75 a minute. That’s $105 an hour. If this was a full-time job, I’d be making $218,400 a year. But, I only got 12 minutes.
So, I guess you could say that the money’s good in comedy, it’s just the hours that suck.
