Even for comedians, writing a good resume is very important. They can only get an interview and give a demonstration of their routines once they have passed the first step which is to be able to submit a qualified and competitive resume. The resume is an extension of an applicant’s business card or identification card.
Here’s a good example of how a comedian should write his resume.
