Author, inventor and comedian Steve Roye is turning the comedy world upside down with an innovative program that trains participants to become paid corporate comedians in less than three months. The "Make Money in Comedy in 90 Days" program takes people who have had little or no stage experience, teaches them how to write laughter-driven material and then gives them the tools to market themselves to corporate audiences. Ironically, the entire program takes place outside of the traditional comedy club environment.
"The old comedy career model says that it takes at least five years to become a headliner. I can shave about 4-1/2 years off that timeline, and my system is incredibly simple," says Roye. "I recruit motivated, funny people who are eager to fulfill their dream of getting paid to make people laugh."
The strength of the 90 Days program is that it takes the mystery out of the comedy business and empowers people to take charge of their own careers. With the help of the Internet, weekly conference calls and his patent pending Comedy Pro Software, Roye helps participants develop and improve their comedy material in upbeat creative sessions. One of his early success stories is John Armytage, who owns a beauty products company in Sydney, Australia. "I now have 35 minutes of killer material after only two months and my first comedy show earned more than $1,200," says Armytage.
Most people think that comedians only perform at comedy clubs, on TV or in Vegas. Yet, the most lucrative and reliable comedy market is performing at corporate meetings and events. The 90 Days program also shows people how to get quality stage time in their own local geographical area and provides valuable insights on how to get gigs at a variety of functions and markets. "I've been able to start promoting my own paid comedy shows and I done it in a matter of weeks," says Adam Robinson, a computer salesman in Chicago.
Who are the best candidates for the 90 Days program? Anyone who is naturally funny, willing to develop corporate quality comedy material and interested in learning how to promote his or her career. The best part is that people donÂt have to quit their day jobs while they work to get their comedy dreams off the ground. Darian Kovach, is a computer analyst in Columbus, Ohio with a wife and two kids, yet he performs three times a week as a stand up comedian. "I always knew I could be a professional comedian and now IÂm getting the chance to prove it. This program has shown me how" says Kovach.
"The next time someone says 'You ought to be a comedian,' youÂre only 90 days away from making that comment a reality" says Roye.
