I think some people have the wrong idea. They think I'm anti-booker or comedy club system. I am not. There are many ways of succeeding in stand up comedy and those angles that require you to work within the system of multiple bookers and with a big chain comedy club or clubs is a way of succeeding, no question. I have done this very thing and it worked for me to a certain degree.
All I've ever said is I felt there came a time that the business light bulb went on in my head and I knew I had outgrown or at least lost an affection for that particular system or micro-systems.
