Episode 72: BFF’s Volume 7

This week I sat down with Brad Hartland, Ryan Sweeney, Rob Banks, and Dan Ciarrocchi. We talk social politics, the reasons why musicians are horrible people, hipster fantasy football players, I ask Brad what he’s doing with his life, and we institute a policy where anytime someone wants to insult Ryan they have to compliment him instead.

Episode 71: Sergio Marzitelli, Doug Max, Erwin Portillo, and Naval Officer Pat

This week I hosted stand up comics Sergio Marzitelli, Doug Max, Erwin Portillo (sort of), and non-comic Naval Officer Pat.

We talk hack-jokes and developing a unique voice, the importance of honesty in art, Pat talks about capturing Somali pirates and getting engaged, Doug lectures me on my hosting skills and tells a classic dog ejaculation story, Sergio talks about his woes being single, I tell everyone how to solve all your relationship problems, and Erwin’s mic didn’t work but he managed to get many offensive jokes on the air by texting them to me to read for him.

Episode 70: BFF’s Volume 6

In this week’s BFF episode I’m joined by Brad, Ryan, and Oli. We talk about the mob mentality of our over-offended culture, racial prejudice in the media, and unjust arrests. Then we tackle some real topics like picnic planning, the perceived value (or lack thereof) of music, and Pat joins us towards the end to talk about our ska-date to see Reel Big Fish and Less Than Jake last week.

Episode 68: Rob Banks

In this episode I spoke with LA comic Rob Banks about doing open mics in LA, growing up on a farm, cocky feature comics, working as a background actor, and he educates me about getting “belligerent” at country concerts.


He also tells me about when he moved to LA and lived in the dining room of a house with 12 guys including a meth addict who lived in the closet and was somehow able to talk a girl into staying the night once.

Episode 45: Steve Esposito

This week I talked to 6-year stand up vet Steve Esposito about advice for comics who are starting out, the struggle of making a living off of your art, marriage, why artists are egomaniacs by nature (at first), and horrible youtube comments.
