Performing In and Out of the Writers’ Room ft. Charla Lauriston (Hoops/People of Earth) (PT141)

July 01, 2019

Alex and Nick welcome Charla Lauriston, writer on Hoops, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and People of Earth, to discuss pitching in the writers' room and working as a stand-up comedian.

How can you be effective in a writers' room? Should you gauge your own pitches? How does stand-up translates to TV writing? What is the process of writing a comedy routine? How do you sustain a TV writing career beyond that first job?

The Paper Team is a laugh riot...
