Rachel talks to writer Jason Shapiro about his journey as a comedy writer and developing the popular twitter account, Los Feliz Daycare. Having started as a PA on Lost and moving his way up to write on shows such as Betty White's Off Their Rockers, Jason discusses the importance of standing out in your own way. He tells the story of how he started a fake twitter account and anonymously tweeted to writers he was working with as a way to get noticed while showcasing his writing ability. The idea turned into something bigger for Jason and Los Feliz Daycare is now followed by some of the industry's biggest players and has opened the door to more opportunities for Jason.
"There is a very linear path at how to do it, but that's gonna happen for 1% of people. You have to also be doing these things on the side to get noticed and those are the things to get you to the next level," Jason says.
