Episode 66: Sergio Marzitelli

In this episode I sat down with Pennsylvania (by way of Miami) comedian Sergio Marzitelli. He tells me about waking up in his late 20’s and quitting coaching basketball to work as a comic and scriptwriter. We discuss small town crowds, when you write a joke/song so good you think you must have stole it, the importance of evaluating yourself honestly, overconfident performers, and we compare issues in the music scene with issues in the stand up scene. Also, I reveal my sitcom idea and profess my love for the guy who makes beats for ICP.
