WSC Show #107 - Interview with Jamie Masada, Owner of the Laugh Factory




In today's episode, I talk with Jamie Masada, the owner and founder of the Laugh Factory, a comedy club on the Sunset Strip for over 25 years. Every Wednesday throughout the strike the Laugh Factory turned over all door proceeds to the Writers Guild Foundation Industry Support Fund. This fund was set up through the Writers Guild Foundation for all below-the-line personnel in need of financial help of which writers do not benefit. Recorded Wednesday, 20 February 2008.
