The 5 top late night talk show comedy hosts.

How your radio and TV appearances can lead to Big-$ Gig$
That is . . . if you are able to get a copy of that appearance,
then exploit it properly!



Q: What do you do with your radio and TV appearances (if you are able to get a copy of the appearance)?
A: Whenever you are on radio or TV, make sure that you and at least 3 friends are recording it at home.
This, as back-up just in case the station goofs up, and you cannot get a copy of their recording.
Stuff happens!

Why should you care?
•Because successful appearances on small radio and TV stations
shows producers of national radio and TV networks
that you know how to do the job.
Important fact:
Most local headliners give terrible media interviews.
So, if you are at all ambitious,
•get good at media interviews starting . . . now.

Next, you or someone else must edit it down with audio or video editing software:
Cut out verbal stumbles, any mistakes, etc.
John Kerry stumbles his line.
This 9-3-2013 Associated Press photo printed in the Wall Street Journal
catches Secretary of State John Kerry verbally stumbling
over a boots-on-ground question.
This was while testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing
to advance President Barack Obama’s request for congressional authorization
for military intervention in Syria.
The request was not advanced.

Since whatever you say on radio or TV
is unlikely to be picked up by media political analysts,
do yourself a favor:
Keep only the good sound bites.

Remember how you surf the web:
People like you are in a hurry,
and only want to watch 30-90 seconds of your video.
Good.
Less is more!

Next, put these great sound bites on your professionally designed web site:
Why?
If the show is popular, your appearance alone is an implied endorsement.

Comedy bookers and corporate Meeting Planners will be equally impressed.
•Many full time comedy clubs will not headline you unless you have already appeared
on at least one of the TV shows hosted by the comics
that appear in the photo at the top of this page.
Gee, isn't that interesting?

But if you want to really talk interesting, remember:
Corporate gigs pay "funny money;"
•which means you can get ten (10) times your comedy club Headliner pay for a week
•in just one performance!

Did that cold fact just get your attention?
OK: then, be sure to click the next two links.
•Yes: you can get in on this action today!

Why delay?
Eh?

Tips on prepping for media interviews,
including how to contact media.

Tips on how to nail your on-the-air performance,
including a demonstration
:
How to greatly improve your odds of going over BIG during a media interview.
Then, the radio or TV show will want to have you back on again real soon.
Yes: that means you can get yet another shot at scoring the big money.
•That would be more-$, wouldn't it?

;-)

But then, what do I know?

What more would you like to learn about
The Act to Sell the Act: Media Interviews?



I am ready to get started with your:
1)
One-on-one Coaching & Co-Writing services at $200/hour, rounded to the quarter-hour.
Today, I wish to purchase this number of hours: x $200/hour = US$:



I have already read Jim's "Coaching and Co-Writing your Stand-Up Comedy Act or Business Keynote Speech" web page,
and agree to abide by Jim's "Consulting with the coach--procedures."


2) I am ready to order your "Selling Yourself during interviews by newspapers, radio and TV" audio/workbook package.
I realize that since being successfully interviewed by a professional radio DJ, TV talk show host
or newspaper/magazine writer is the supreme test of comic technique,
there must be pre-requisite audio/workbook packages from Jim's Home Study Program (HSP).
So, I can order my copy of Jim's entire HSP
(see next section)
or just order my copy of these minimum five pre-requisites packages + the Interviews package itself:
"How to Write a Joke: the 7 basic joke forms" (32 pages, one hour audio) $50
"Editing Your Comedy or Serious Speech into an Act" (34 pages, one hour audio) $50
"Topical Monologues: 11 joke formats" (92 pages, four hours audio)$100
"Social Commentary: 7 joke formats" (22 pages, one hour audio)$50
"Simple Premise Routines" (38 pages, one hour audio)$75
"Selling Yourself during interviews by newspapers, radio and TV" (54 pages, three hours audio)$100
Total (272 pages, 11 hours audio): $425

$425 + $35 shipping & handling via US Priority Mail = $460.00
California residents: must pay 8.5% sales tax on $425: $39.10 + $460 = $499.10

3) As all the above pages and audio are included in Jim's entire "Home Study Program" (HSP),
I will instead go ahead, and order all 1,200 pages and 21 hours of audio for my copy of HSP:
$1,000 + $60 shipping & handling via US Priority Mail = $1,060.00
California residents: must pay 8.5% sales tax on $1,000: $85 + 1,060 = $1,145.00

Full description and a video clip preview:
Go here, and click on "Home Study Program" (HSP) in the left-hand column.
That will stop the "Tip-of-the-Day" (TOD) video from playing in the right-hand column and
replace it with this HSP menu.
See blue arrow below in this screenshot.

Note: TOD requires Flash Player which is already on 98% of Apple and Windows desktop & laptop computers.
However, Flash is not allowed on Apple iOS devices like: iPhone, iPodTouch and iPad.
Scroll down for an alternative link to iOS-friendly information covering basically the same material.

Apple and Windows computer version:
Click on the link inside top blue box for "21 hours audio & 1,200 pages workbooks" to find links
for a video preview and a 3-slide "More Information about" table of contents for entire "Home Study Program."

See the other five blue boxes for more information about the pre-requisite packages for
"Selling Yourself in Interviews: Newspapers, Radio & TV,"
which are easiest to order from this order form,
not from my TOD video jukebox.

However, you can just as easily order your copy of my entire "HSP" directly from my TOD video jukebox :
