Album Notes
This is the perfect album for any person considering (or even curious about) what a Stand-Up Comedian must do to get started and manage his (or her) career.

This is Volume 5 of a 5-Volume set, each containing from 18 to 22 tracks of valuable 'backstage' information about the 'serious business' of comedy... and it definitely is a business.

Barry Neal, stand-up comedian, coach and talent manager has been in the business for over 20 years, appeared on TV, and knows the business from A to Z. In this 5-volume series he explains everything from how to get started by doing 'open mike' nights, to developing material and graduating from Opener, to Featured Act, to Closer.

You'll learn how to do avoid making career-killing mistakes, and where the real money-making opportunities are, and you'll appreciate Barry's telling of his experiences along the way in the beginning of his career as a comedy club emcee, opening for and introducing Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Maher, Janine Garafalo, and many others... and about how to survive in Las Vegas by Not making the mistake that he did.

If you've listened to all 5 of the albums in this set, then all you have to do now is get some material together, get out to a comedy club or anywhere else where there's an Open Mike night, get up on the stage, and see what it feels like to be scared out of your wits. But don't worry... it gets better. Just remember, bombing is part of learning, so thanks for listening to our albums and here's wishing you the best of luck in a great profession.
