“Have Fun”…those were the words Gene Perret used when he started Round Table as a way for comedy writers and performers to connect and learn more about the business. After 30 years we are thrilled to still be in the position to help others pursue their dreams.
Through this website, we hope to continue to help Round Table members learn the craft of comedy and to connect with others in their profession. Subscribers of Round Table will have access to the RT pages. These pages will provide how-to articles, interviews, markets, inspiration, and more. If you are a subscriber, please access these at any time. We will be updating on an as needed basis and will do our best to provide you with the most recent information. If you are not a subscriber, you may sign up and start enjoying the benefits of a Round Table Subscriber.
Round Table has survived due to our membership. If you have any suggestions or recommendations of what you would like to see here, please let us know. We will do our best to make sure we are fulfilling your needs.
But most important, heed Gene’s advice and “Have fun.”
If you are not a member, we’d love to have you at the Round Table.
Subscriptions can be bought in 1 month, 3 month, and 12 month intervals.
