The Comedy Bureau Field Report Ep. 205: Sam Varela & State of Comedy 2024

Intrepid indie comedy producers, Sam Varela, returns to TCB Field Report to talk the state of comedy with TCB’s Jake Kroeger at this juncture of (still) early 2024. Varela produces shows in both LA and NYC (including the amazing Picture This) as well as live-streams that are genuinely worth watching and definitely is one of the perfect people to weigh in on where the art form/community/scenes of comedy are right now and where they’re headed going forward.
