On the debut episode of "Smart Girls at the Party," Amy Poehler sits in a dark studio and solemnly introduces her first guest as a "singer, actor, dancer, musician, feminist, entrepreneur and skateboarder."
"Just get to the joke," is the lesson, Latham says, and it doesn't hurt if the thumbnail representing the video is of one of the attractive female hosts.
"It's the future, man," Latham says of the YouTube channels. "Especially for my career as long I've been in stand-up, always looking for the next Bernie Mac or the next Steve Harvey. They don't have shows anymore like they used to on television to find talent. So YouTube is a really good platform for me to introduce new comedians to a new audience. And the audience will tell me if they like them."
