EP79 - Vladimir McTavish - the secrets behind The Stand

May 5, 2017

Vladimir McTavish (@vladmctavish) is one of 4 comedians who sits on the board of directors at the world famous Stand comedy club. We talked about building an audience for a comedy club, why the Stand is so highly looked at by comedians as a model for how a club should be run and more. 

We talked about...

  • The value of unpaid gigs.
  • Balancing being a promoter and a comedian.
  • The secrets behind the comedy club chain The Stands



This podcast would be great for anyone who is interested in gigging at the Stand, going full time as a comedian or an audience member wanting to know some of the behind-the-scenes secrets of the comedy club chain as well as the perspective of being a promoter.
