Episode Info:

Today on the pod, the founder and CEO of Comedy Dynamics, Brian Volk-Weiss! Comedy Dynamics is the largest independent producer and distributor of comedy in the country.

Countless grunt jobs led him to work as a manager’s assistant. Soon, Volk-Weiss was overseeing his own roster of comedians.

Comedy Dynamics has a library of over 700 titles and has produced stand-up specials for Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Jim Gaffigan, Ali Wong, David Cross and many, many more.
