The way-too-likable, philosophically funny comic, Bret Raybould, explores the role of PRESENCE in stand-up from a makeshift recording studio inside Bret's private plane. We break this topic down into "being present" and "stage presence", touching on the stages of learning, flow state, body language, not giving a fuck, and knowing your act. Bret tells us how dealt successfully with following SNL's Leslie Jones after she brought down the house. We dig into these aspects of presence and a lot more via bits by Brody Stevens, Patrice O'Neal, and Dane Cook. All this while we eat gold-crusted caviar off the backs of Bret's devoted team of silent manservants.
Conan alum Mike Recine is a national headliner & a hysterically twisted joke writer--the perfect guy to explore WRONG comedy. This hilariously earnest chat covers bits that are morally "wrong," factually incorrect, or illogical using material from Dave Chappelle, Patrice O'Neal, Anthony Jeselnik, & Mike Recine himself.
The all-too-likable and contagiously funny comic, Kenny DeForest (Seth Meyers, HBO's Crashing), joins us to discuss LIKABILITY. What makes a comic likable or not? How does that relate to authenticity, status, and confidence? And some great stuff from Patrice O'Neal, Eminem (!?), and Kenny himself.
Heady and hilarious comic Dave Lester covers CROWD WORK through his wealth of experience and material from Patrice O'Neal, Bo Burnham, and Big Jay Oakerson.
Ashley Gavin is a robot -- a high-energy, high impact, hysterically funny, lesbian robot. Since some of her best jokes only work once audience gets to know her, we dedicated this episode to "Persona Bits." She is a nationally touring comedian, and her comedy has been featured on FOX, AXS TV, SeeSo, and SiriusXM Comedy.
