With web-only comedy series proliferating online and stand-up comics increasingly using digital platforms to connect with -- and sell to -- comedy fans, the Paley Center for Media will explore the intersection of comedy and technology with the Next Big Thing in Digital Comedy

The Next Big Thing in Digital Comedy featured dynamic presentations from comedy creators, executives, and entrepreneurs, and high-level discussion on what media and programming executives need to know about the changing landscape of comedy

PaleyNextBigThing is a series of quarterly gatherings designed to showcase new entrants and disruptors in the media, entertainment, and technology spaces by bringing them together with established leaders and investors in those industries. A mix of elevator pitches, open debate, and cocktail conversation, the PaleyNextBigThing provides a forum for rising innovators and entrepreneurs to meet the pioneers and pillars of the media industry.
