Web Comedy: The New Joke?


Websites, blogs, social media, YouTube, iTunes, live streaming and podcasts…

The worldwide web has put a worldwide audience directly into the hands of comics. How do these formats (and the marketplace) affect creative practice? What intellectual property protections exist to support comics? How essential is an online presence?

Join moderator and TV producer Todd Abbott, YouTube sensation Alex Williamson, social media producer and comedian Jennifer Wong, podcaster Tommy Dassalo and US comedy producer Sam Kinken (AEG Live), to discuss navigating the brave new world of comedy 2.0.

Presented by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
