I am a junior looking for opportunities in comedy performance or writing. I am hoping to have an internship this summer with NBC or Reductress. I am nervous because I do not have any direct production experience. However, I am currently Media Intern for Flotilla TV and Naffy Improv, and I am a performer at ImprovBoston. I am also going to Chicago next semester for the Comedy Studies program at Second City.
What are some ways I can make myself a more competitive applicant for NBC internships? Are there opportunities in Chicago for production experience? Thank you for your help.
