The Comedy Bureau Field Report Ep. 129: Ellory Smith & Dana Donnelly & Coming Up in Comedy Under Capitalism

There is so much focus on the craft of comedy these days that one might look past how the economics of it often contribute to just how hard it is to do comedy as either passion or a career. Being aware of both is necessity and both rising stars in the LA comedy scene and the face of splendid monthly show Funnilingus, Ellory Smith and Dana Donnelly, sit down with TCB’s Jake Kroeger on this week’s TCB Field Report to talk how to keep their dreams alive while the winds of capitalism often blow fiercely against them.

Also, “hot” takes on some of this year’s Emmy winners as they were being announced during this recording.

Follow Ellory @ellory_smith on IG and @ellorysmith on Twitter and Dana @hottestdana on IG and @danadonnelly on Twitter and their show @funnilingusla and get tickets to Dana’s half hour @ Hotel Cafe on 9/28 here.
