Producing a Show in NYC

Dan Allen, co-producer of the popular and long-running Sacapuntas!, provides insight into successfully producing a live comedy show in New York.

Your role as the producer is to build trust between your audience and your show. You have to consistently provide a funny show that is different every single time they attend. At the same time, you have to build trust between the performers and your show. They need to know that every time they perform on your show it’s going to be fun and productive.
