Employment Prospects


Comedians work in a wide variety of venues, including comedy clubs, resorts, hotels, and cruise ships. Cable television and streaming services such as Netflix are major employers of comedians. They hire comedians not just as performers, but as writers for situation comedies, movies, and talk shows, and as entertainers for the audiences at live tapings. A comedian interested in performing is well advised to hire an agent to find employers and book engagements.
