On this bonus episode of Beginnings, we break our usual format and delve into the creative process by chatting with Caroline Creaghead about booking and producing a live comedy show. As the booker and producer for Big Terrific, Get It Out There: Comedy by BAM and IFC, The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, her own weekly show at Union Hall, Creaghead and Company, as well as many others, Caroline has been responsible for putting together some of the best shows in New York City, and in 90 minutes, she walks me through the nuts and bolts of creating a successful live show, as well as discussing cynical networking and the morality of unpaid internships.
