How a Comedian Copes in a Pandemic

Much like surviving a career transition from banking to comedy, Stephan Dyer knows he will be able to get through a pandemic. The first 2 years of “bad” stand-up didn’t stop him from pursuing his passion and he has since performed over 300 shows around the world. The COVID-19 pandemic is a vulnerable time for the arts sector, so we checked in on Stephan to see how he’s coping. We talked about what he is doing to run his public speaking school, MalPensando, his thoughts on productivity during a lockdown, and why he thinks artists are powerful.
