I am Barry Katz. I've managed, developed and produced for Louis CK, Dave Chappelle, Tracey Morgan, Jay Mohr among others and host the Industry Standard podcast on the business of comedy. Ask me anything
Hey Reddit. Doing this from Just For Laughs in Montreal. I have a live edition of my podcast tomorrow morning with the President of Original Programming at Comedy Central, Kent Alterman. If you're in Montreal, come on out.
Update 1: Getting a lot of Chappelle questions. Here's my podcast with Chappelle's Show co-creator Neil Brennan that probably has what you're looking for in terms of stories.
Update 2: Barry got some of that sleep stuff around 4am, but he's back up and ready to answer any more questions you might have.
