How does Zoom Comedy Differ From Live, In-Person Comedy?
Zoom comedy shows are just like live comedy shows in that your participation and energy is key to the show’s success. When you and your guests have their video and sound turned on, the evening is much more fun and interactive. Unlike Netflix, the comedians can hear and see you, and often interact with you. The show isn’t a roast, but just like in live, in-person comedy, crowd work is an essential part of the performance.
