Julie Klausner writes for Fuse TV’s Billy on the Street, is the author of I Don’t Care About Your Band, and hosts the podcast How Was Your Week.

“People expect writer-performers to be one-man bands right now, because it’s easier to publish our own work,” she says. “There’s definitely more responsibility on us
for that.”

On deciding where to roll out new material, Klausners says, “When I first started on Twitter, a relative asked, ‘Aren’t you concerned with giving away your jokes?’ I don’t think of it that way. That’s my content, and that’s what I do.”
