Episode 268 - Chappelle, Iron Fist and South Sudan
March 21, 2017 10:39 AM PDT
J-L goes deep on comedy specials (Chappelle, Jim Norton, etc.), Netflix Shows (Iron Fist, The Crown), his own failure to secure a Comedy Central Half Hour, his rankings and thoughts on Marvel TV shows and then asks his listeners to consider making a monthly donation to WFP.org to help the people of South Sudan. It is a good and varied episode.

Music by The Big SexyEpisode 267 - The Moral Rot of Comedy with Mike Payne
March 13, 2017 09:31 PM PDT
The title only scratches the surface of what J-L and Panye West get into. This episode should be listened to by anyone who likes comedy, aspires to do comedy or is a comedian. From oversaturation of content by Netflix to ambitious open micers and every one in between J-L, with assists from Mike Payne, dissects every business and moral failure of every group associated with stand up comedy. It sounds depressing, but it is the only thing you need to hear about stand up in 2017.

Don't call it a comeback. Seriously. But J-L is back this week to discuss the Super Bowl in his own unique way. He also reviews 3 new comedy specials on Netflix. It is a fun return to your earbuds!

This episode is a doozy. J-L mourns the future death of his movie reviews, offers a new Moment of Dane and then discusses reluctantly trying to help an ex only to find out it's for something far less worthwhile. J-L then wraps up discussing criticisms of a new comedy special and how he hates how Netflix and TV are using stand up to test market young talent, rather than to reward those that are ready.

A lawyer by education, a comedian by trade and a disappointment to my parents, I travel the country telling jokes and interviewing people once a week to convince them the things they like are not actually as good as they think they are.
