The dark and bubbly NYC comedian, Camille Theobald, spends her evening with us laughing at bits by Louis CK, Sarah Silverman, and Tom Segura. We playfully examine the role played by TENSION & RELEASE in stand-up performance and writing.
Fantastic stand up comic and writer Peter Revello is the perfect guest to theorize about dark, black humor. And that's what this episode is all about--how and why we have a hearty laugh at bad things. Apropos to Peter's philosophy background, this episode lends itself to exploratory debate; so if you love nerding out about how humor works, you'll love this.
Usama Siddiquee is a standup comic and light-speed comedy host. His high-energy comedy style and turbo-riffing can be seen all over the U.S., and he's a "made man" at New York Comedy Club in Manhattan. This episode is frenetic and hilarious, frothing with the fervor all three comics share for stand up and peppered with philosophies of success.
This is the inaugural episode. Harrison said, "Dude, we should talk and stuff about stuff." Jeff interpreted that to mean that the hosts should record an episode that explains who we are because, without the backdrop of our characters, Jeff seems like a real ass, despite actually being quite harmless. Then we talk about sets!
