Show Notes

Scott Edwards started his first company at age 17, and at 24—in 1980—opened Laughs Unlimited, just the 12th full-time comedy club in the entire United States. Scott was fortunate to fall in with comedy greats like Bob Saget, Dave Coulier, Garry Shandling, and many others who helped him develop an extremely successful chain of comedy clubs in Northern California. In turn, he helped develop talents like Paula Poundstone, Brian Posehn, and Dana Carvey, and enjoyed working with icons like Graham Chapman of Monty Python, Pat Paulsen, Soupy Sales, and Tommy Chong.

Scott knows comedy performance and production, having produced three TV series, a number of large concerts, and thousands of live comedy stage shows. Now Scott is sharing what he’s learned through his books, interactive online courses, podcast, and video archive. Listen and enjoy the experiences and stories about talent from all the greats, from Ellen and Yakov Smirnoff to Paul Reiser and Seinfeld—and even the amazing Robin Williams!
