Today on the show we have Scott Montoya, who I got to interview back in October when he brought the LOL Comedy Festival to town for another year in a row. One of the artists from that fest was a previous guest on the show: Kate Quigley, episode 57, and around the same time is when I talked to Scott.
Scott started his comedy producing career in 2002 with The Original Latin Kings of Comedy, and from there he's produced The Payaso Comedy Slam, The Original Latin Divas of Comedy, Joan Rivers: Don't Start With Me, Andrew Dice Clay: Indestructible, Snoop Dogg Presents the Bad Girls of Comedy, Jay Mohr: Funny For A Girl, Tommy Chong: Comedy at 420, and loads more. He started lolflix Standup Comedy Films in 2012 and then started up LOL Comedy Fest, which brought major stars to Santa Barbara and other cities since 2011, including the very funny Brad Williams. A lot of these shows are streaming so don't just take my word for it.
But we go into his background in this interview and I hope you'll see what it takes to get into event promotion and the circuitous route that he took. You can follow LOLflix at lolflix.com. Thanks to Stephanie Hope for helping set up this interview.
