Des Bishop came over to Skeptic Tank headquarters (my apartment) to tell me about Ireland. Des moved there from Queens when he was a teenager and managed to go from a Brooklyn problem child, to one of Ireland’s most successful comedians. He tells me about his observations of the people and the land of Ireland, with some history and some stories. Have a happy and drunk St Patrick’s Day everybody!

Steve Simeone and I had some dinner, watched a college basketball game, and talked about all the time he spends over at Children’s Hospital. He’s been going over there all the time for over a year now. He hangs out with the sick kids and just kind of plays with them. And he does it all the time. It’s a really nice story. We also get into a little bit about the late great Gary Handling and the surprising amount he meant to all of us at the Comedy Store

If you want to donate time or money, here are 3 places Simeone says are all great causes.

St Jude is helping treat and cure childhood cancer

Regular Hero is a group dedicated to helping people help others. They come up with creative ways to show you how you probably already have the power to help.

Be The Match is the group that’s trying to get as many bone marrow people tested as possible. It’s an easy-in, easy-out way to do it. And if you match with someone down the road, you will for sure save a person’s life who would die if you hadn’t gotten tested.

Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles is where Steve Volunteers

Here’s a video of someone else volunteering her time there. You will cry.

It started a trend of kids in children’s hospitals all over doing their own version of the song.

Again, you will cry. Why aren’t we all helping? Why am I not helping? It’s time I help.
