    This week, Daniel Eachus sits down with Valerie Lopez to talk about being an award-winning jazz musician and how it translated to his comedy pacing, how reading the biographies of notable comics helped him see the behind the scenes work needed to become successful, and how putting his foot in a million doors translates accomplishing his goals as a comic, author, and actor.

    Daniel's recommendations for comics to check out from LA include: JC Currais, James Frey, and Samuel J Comroe.
    If you're in LA and you're reading this, you already know that LA is one of the biggest comedy scenes in the country - there's something for every taste. In fact, Daniel suggests getting a bit out of the hub of LA and head south to Orange County which has a lot of great shows to offer with a lot of young up and coming comics. La Cave in Costa Mesa, The Rec Room in Huntington Beach, and the Irvine Improv are destinations to check out. As he tells it, Orange County is where you go for stage time and LA is where you go to network and meet people.

Alleywhoa! ,

Get to know Austin comedy & beyond!

This podcast is an excellent resource to learn about the Austin comedy scene, who’s involved, and what’s going on. Meet the comedians and get to know them better than we probably know each other! These interviews are absolutely great.

Lotta great comics here

I listened to Brendon Walsh's episode back in October 2017 & just recently listened to the John Rabon ep. Scanning the names on the other episodes and I've found a new pod to binge. Check it out!

The Hunter Duncan episode is the best one but they’re all good
