On a plane ride back from Washington, DC, Joe Rogan and I struck up a conversation about censorship in comedy and about standup in general. Rogan and I take these UFC trips sometimes. He gets a free companion ticket and companion hotel room wherever the UFC takes him. I used to go once in a while just to have fun and do something cool. But then it started to hit us that we’re bored the night of the weigh-ins. So Joe started scheduling comedy shows in whatever city the UFC went to for the night before the fights. It makes those trips a lot more productive. Anyway, this was on the way back from DC. We did a show at the Warner Theater two nights before. Sold out, like, 1600 seats. Fun, fun, crowd. And some of my friends from high school were at the show. That was nice because it fooled them into thinking I was a winner.

 

I used to watch Rogan kill with this bit every week from the cover booth at the Comedy Store when I was an employee there.

Steve Agee stopped by my apartment to talk about mental health for a while. It’s the first podcast I’ve done from my apartment. I wish I could say I did it in my pajamas but unfortunately, I had already been out before we recorded. Anyway, I really liked this episode. I think some frank and casual discussion about mental disorders would really help fight the stigma associated with the diseases. The more common the subject becomes, the more people will search for help.

I’m still gonna upload this Agee clip of him telling a sweet psychedelic story from the very first This Is Not Happening storyteller show. Check back on Tuesday.
