UTG Presents: Stand-Up Tuesday with Ari Shaffir

Posted by: Drew Beringer (02/12/13)
Under The Gun recently spoke with comedian Ari Shaffir for its "Stand-Up Tuesday" feature, which you can check out here.
As production gets cheaper, itís like, letís just give it straight to them and that way, the fans Ė theyíll decide what to do with it, if they support a comic or not. I heard something on NPR about self-publishing for writers, and how it used to be this black mark. It was the grossest thing you could do. But now, itís just like, the writers are giving up to 80% of book sales, including Kindle sales, through Penguin releasing it or what have you. Now, theyíre giving up like 10%. You ask a writer, and theyíre like, we just donít need them anymore. There are so many modes of distribution now that you donít have to rely on someone okaying you.

Don't like his material in the slightest, but he seems like a great guy who's really making a name for himself in the comedy world recently. He's very non-controversial, so I can't be mad.

Love me some Ari! I'm like, 50-50 on his material, but when he hits a home run he hits a home run (the rest of the time he's kind of just bitter/angry).

Dude's making waves.
