NEW YORK, NY – The Comix Academy announces a new one day intensive seminar, The Business of Comedy, to help comedians and producers improve their skills on the business side of show business.

Under the tutelage of publicist and comedy business expert, Kambri Crews, The Business of Comedy will teach you how to better market yourself, build a fan base, brand your product, and use technology to your advantage as well as teach you the difference between great and horrible web presences.

This one day seminar will be taught in Ochi’s Lounge (downstairs at Comix) and, as a special one-time offer, Crews will follow up the seminar with a half hour, one-on-one consultation, where under her watchful eye you’ll learn how to apply everything you just learned to your own material.
