Question for Gethard - Why don’t you start your own network?
Because that would cost hundreds of millions of dollars in start up money, as well as advertising, staffing, developing, and maintaining a full slate of shows, and I’m an unsuccessful comedian from a middle class neighborhood in northern New Jersey.
Believe me - If I could get my own network somehow, it would be the craziest network in the history of things being networked. That being said, I can’t get anyone to even bite on our show - if you know of a way I can leapfrog that piece of the equation and get straight to owning the CW, please give me the inside scoop. I am honestly all ears.
I feel like this answer came off as sarcastic. I hope it didn’t and apologize if it did. I would love to start a network. But I don’t know how, and the only thing I do know about it is that it takes more money than I will ever see added up total over the entire span of my life.
