039 : Scotty Landes : Comedy Writer & Producer

Scotty Landes Post

While in college Scotty knew he wanted to become a comedy writer.

After scraping by for years in NYC he got his first gig with only $400 left to his name.

He’s made the most of that opportunity and is now the co-executive producer of MTV’s Money From Strangers and a writer for Comedy Central’s Workaholics.

On this Skype interview you’ll hear Scotty discuss his path to breaking into the comedy writing biz, his unusual way of interacting with his Twitter following, and how when the door opens, be ready to walk through it.

“If you can have this really weird life where you get paid to make people laugh it’s like I don’t need people to inspire me to do that. I just will do it on my own and be very grateful for it and then die within 60 years and I’m A-Ok with all of it.” – Scotty Landes
