How to Get Out of Boston Comedy Central DirectV’s Brianna Wu Ban

The Brianna Walsh lawsuit has caused major disruption for Boston comedy.

But it could be a good thing for us.

In this video, the Boston comedian discusses the new ruling from the US District Court in New York and the implications for other comic and independent creators who’ve been blocked from directv channels.

The panel discusses whether the ruling is an important precedent or a bad one for comedy in the United States.

Also: the fallout from the Brianna Watsons lawsuit, why people are calling for more directv exclusivity, the new restrictions on indie creators, and whether or not we’re seeing the death of comedy as a medium.

This is a fun and informative episode.
