In this episode of TribePod, Courtney Lane interviews Ray Ellin.
The world of standup comedy has shut down because of COVID-19, but that hasn’t stopped one comedian from earning a living.
Ray Ellin is a comedian, host, producer, and writer, and is the founder of Comedy Cloud (www.ComedyCloud.co). He produces live, interactive, Zoom-run, online comedy shows for companies and non-profits. His service is right on time for companies looking how to solve the holiday party problem for 2020.
Ray is also executive producer of Comedy Central's This Week at the Comedy Cellar, which recently wrapped its third season, and he is the owner of Aruba Ray's Comedy Club (www.arubacomedy.com) on the island of Aruba.
But Ray’s current specialty is performing live for employees and interacting with them in real time—bringing a bit of the live comedy show back into the lives of many people who are missing it in lockdown.
Ray caters each show to each company and audience (all female comedians for a women-run organization, all Italians for an Italian-American charity group, etc.). But whatever the bent of the office, he makes sure his show motivates employees and improves company morale.
