Alternate Ways To Work As A Comedian

When you took the stage and thousands of eyeballs glued to you and ears waiting to hear something funny, the pressure being able to perform is nerve-racking.

Radio Jocks

RJ or Radio Jockey has been with us for almost an era, but since the arrival of FM channels the Radio Announcer suddenly being referred as Radio Jockey or RJ. These days an RJ not only plays a part of the navigator but his/her primary aim is to treat the listeners and simultaneously provide regular online information.
