And I think this is the mp3, but I don’t know tech stuff.


While I was visiting New York, I interviewed comedian Mike Lawrence about comic books. I was trying to interview him about what comic book nerd life was like, but then it just turned to talk about comic books and the movies. I’m not a great interviewer. Anyway, fun conversation.


Here’s Mike’s set from his New Faces show at the 2010 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival.

What a nerd.

While I was in New York, I stopped by my friend Kurt Metzger’s apartment to talk about his religious upbringing and his rejection of that life. Kurt has clearly spent a lot of time thinking about all this junk, so it was great to get him ranting about it. If you’ve never seen his standup, it’s amazing. He tours about as much as the Beatles now, so if you want to see him, you probably have to be in Manhattan. He usually plays at the Comedy Cellar. And finding him online is nearly impossible. I suggest subscribing to his Facebook feed, because he gets angry on there a lot.

Here’s the Michael Jackson bit we were talking about.

And here’s his set from Ferguson earlier this year. He stayed with me when he was here doing it because the Late Late Show would only cover one day of hotel for him. While he was here he smoked more medical marijuana than anyone I’ve ever seen. He has a crazy tolerance. If you ever see him, offer him weed. I guarantee he will love it. Tell him it’s because of this podcast.

Also, I forgot to take a picture of the two of us together for the website and there’s nothing online of us both so I asked some people on Twitter to photoshop something of the two of us together. That one on top is one of those. I’m gonna share with you some of my other favorites, culminating in the best one, some sort of amalgamation of the two of us in one face. It’s pretty hot. I also like how everyone used the same ridiculous picture of Kurt making that weird jagged shit log face.





And here’s the coup de grace. Try not to beat off to it.
