Work Environment

Full-time comedians usually spend a lot of time traveling between shows. A comedian may have a strong following in the Midwest, for example, and in the course of a week he or she may have two shows in Detroit, two shows in Chicago, and a show in St. Louis. Some people may find this lifestyle exciting, but for many it is exhausting and lonely. Those who perform as part of an improv troupe may also travel a lot. Once a comedian has developed a good following, the traveling may subside somewhat. More established comedians perform at one or two clubs in the same city on a fairly regular basis.
