Mike Leigh is the founder of MLA Talent. They're not just a talent agency they also produce a lot of free digital media and podcasts creating their own podcast network to share audiences.
I got him on to talk about...
-How does he scout for new talent or online content to develop?
-Does it help having a following online to get on TV or radio?
-Why he thinks there’s so few great comedy producers now.
-Why he thinks acts with big profiles shouldn’t be doing the Free Fringe and who he books at his Fringe venue.
-How does he push forward clients he represents that TV and radio are not interested in?

This interview would be good for any act looking into developing an online audience or someone who already has one who wants to try and move it to the real world as well as any act who wants to try and find an agent as there's loads of advice on how to find the right one and what not to do.
