as much as I hate him, Dane Cook really changed things long before Bo, by using Myspace. I actually dislike both immensely but I respect how they got their audience and nurtured it and became big stars.

too many comedy specials on Netflix right now. I like to laugh but most of that content is just not very funny.

Peter Jones I'm with you on that. I consume comedy big time via streaming, satellite radio and the clubs on Sunset blvd and the Netflix stuff is over saturated and out of synch with the clubs.

This podcast is amazing. Can't wait for next week's episode. if you're into the history of British stand up at all I would highly recommend the book 'Getting The Joke' by Oliver Double.

Love the pure definition of standup used here: a guy/gal on a stage with a mic—no props, no musical instrument or any gimmicks. There’s something very primal about the lone comic confronting the audience with nothing but his or her wits to get them through the ordeal. The phrase “killing the audience” is perfect for what a great comic does. I loved the first show. Looking forward to the rest.
