– The Sharkpreneur podcast with Seth Greene Episode 647 Art Bell

Upon graduating college, Art Bell got a job at CBS, then HBO, where he started the Comedy Channel that became Comedy Central. After that he was President of Court TV, then worked for a while as a consultant to a bunch of television companies. His most interesting and least successful project was commercializing 3D television.

After Art left the TV business, he took some writing courses and found he loved writing. Constant Comedy is his first book, not counting a humor book he wrote with a couple other guys while at Comedy Central. Art hopes to write some more books.
