Episode 64: Joe Mande
Joe Mande (The Good Place, Parks & Rec) spent many years flailing around doing open mics in NY, directionless, and getting heckled by other comedians. We chat about his first hour-long set and how he immediately offended a bunch of Canadians, how being on the other side of camera taught him how much of this industry is out of your control, dealing with Imodium, maxi pads, and a sweater change before filming his Comedy Central half-hour, and how he went ahead and shot his special anyway when Netflix wasn't willing to give him an hour.
