A conversation about comedy creation and consumption today

Comedy is a complex, global industry so in 2018, what defines a globally successful comedian? A sold-out festival show? An Edinburgh Comedy Award? A Barry Award? Millions of YouTube hits? A chart-topping podcast? A Netflix special?

For this conversation, we’re bringing together panelists from around the comedy business and around the globe. They’ll discuss how the barometer for success in comedy differs across local scenes and cultures. Talking sponsorship, streaming, self-publishing and critical versus popular acclaim – our panel of industry heavies will share their views and insights on the changing nature of comedy.

How do ideas about the longevity of material vary from one country to the next? And why do different comic voices, and comic cultures, suit different platforms?

Please note, the following performances will be filmed: Sat 21 Apr.
