A while back I met an agent. The first thing he asked was if our act was clean. He was very concerned.
He once lost a major corporate client because of this after hiring a well known comedian.
I’m not dropping the name because I can’t verify the story personally. I believe it’s probably true, but I’d rather error on the side of caution.
My agent promised the client a clean act. Before booking, he reiterated this point to the performer several times.
The comedian started out clean. Then he started feeling his audience out. He dropped a blue punch line…
