A Path To Being A Novelist Through Stand Up Comedy by Alan Watt [Founder of L.A. Writers’ Lab]

Film Courage: You were able to make a living at stand-up comedy. Why transition to writing? Because so many people come to LA for the comedy scene.

Alan Watt, Author/Screenwriter and [Founder of L.A. Writers’ Lab]That’s right. I miss stand-up comedy so much. Boy…that’s a really…that’s a loaded question to unpack because there’s a lot of reasons. But the really simple reason is because I didn’t love going on the road. And I when I sold my first novel they backed up the money truck. I didn’t have to go on the road. And it just became this thing where I just sort of became a full-time and would still do stand-up occasionally if somebody asked me like a coffee shop on a Friday or Saturday night or something, I’d go do stand-up and love it. But it just became this thing that it sort of gradually fell away.

Then it’s also if you don’t do stand-up comedy every single night, you suck! It’s one of those things where it’s muscle memory and you lose it so quickly…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
