In this episode, Nick & Brie interview stand-up comic Ryan Dillon, who before the lockdown, had big plans for a booked comedy tour of the East Coast of Canada. But when the pandemic hit, all those plans evaporated quickly. We ask Ryan about how a stand-up comic can cope and continue working on his craft in a time where live shows are no longer possible.
We learn about how Ryan got into comedy, about how he uses comedy to heal painful wounds from the past.
Find out more about Ryan’s writing process and some of the ways he manages audience expectations.
Key Creative Tips:
Writing, stand-up comedy, performance, starting out in Comedy, finding your Voice, performing on Zoom, performing with anxiety & depression, setting and achieving goals.
Nick's Update: Submitting his short story by mail to the Toronto Star’s short story competition.
Brie's Update: 100 Days of Improv & news from The Second City.
