Ok…so a comedian I’ve never met from Texas just e-mailed me…er…excuse me…SPAM’ed me about getting free tickets to his show.
As we discussed on TANcast 34, I hate this. When I send out e-mails, I send them to people I actually think would enjoy the show. I don’t just blindly e-mail everyone on my list and it annoys me that other comics aren’t as considerate.
But this douche isn’t even one of my friends! I’ve never met him. I’ve never seen him. Fuck him!
So I want to send this e-mail in response, but I’m worried it might be too harsh:
Really dude? I’m a comedian. It’s right there in my name…”Tim Babb Comedian.”
How often do you go see comedians you never met just because they message you? I’ll bet not very often. I bet you’re busy working on your own shows.
I’m doing the same thing…but I don’t invite comedians to my shows unless I can get them stage time. So did you send me this because you can get me a guest set at one of your shows or are you just a tool sending out mass e-mails to comedians?
Why do I have a feeling I know the answer?
