What I’ve Learned from the Infinity Project

leave a comment »

Over the past week or so, I’ve been thinking more about how my experience producing this local mock news cast could potentially influence my future career plans. I’ve always considered myself to have a pretty good sense of humor, and I’m finding that I can keep pace with some of our comedians. If my jokes aren’t spot-on, the premise is there. It makes me think I might find success on the level of the Daily Show or the Colbert Report. Of course, it would be nearly impossible for me to arrive at either show without some serious producing abilities, but perhaps it’s something I can train my sights on later in life.

After talking with Ryan Beck, the host of the Infinity Project and a former intern of the Daily Show, he agreed. Getting in the door at either show is a matter of knowing the right people and being in the right place at the right time. For now, it’s on my radar and I’ll be keeping a vigilant eye out for any opportunities in that direction. I’m not sure where to start, but one thing I will be doing next semester is helping out with a skit show on the local access channel. You’ve got to begin somewhere, right!?
