If you work in comedy and you want to help shape its future, please pause a moment and take the Comedians Survey. Deadline to take it is today! What's this survey? It's this:
In the spring of 2011, Comedy Central, in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) initiated The American Comedy Fund, establishing the first-ever fund dedicated exclusively to supporting the comedy community. Administered by The Actors Fund and the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF), the American Comedy Fund will privide much-needed social services, emergency assistance, health care, insurance, housing and employment and training services for those comedic performers who qualify during times of need, crisis or transition.
In order to better serve the community and to help shape the services The American Comedy Fund intends to provide, The Actors Fund is conducting a survey of comedians to better understand the life and challenges of those working in the field. So far, almost 400 comedians have taken this survey, so if you haven’t we’d love to have you participate, and encourage you to spread the word. Your responses will help shape the future of the fund!
Don't you want to be a future-shaper? I thought so. The survey awaits you.
