Adam Eget met me at the Comedy Store to talk about Cedu, the crazy bad kid school his parents shipped him off to because he was a spazz. It’s amazing what people got away with 20+ years ago. The amount of mistreatment and abuse and murder would never fly now. Sorry for the echoey sound, I didn’t realize how hollow that room we recorded in would sound. Listen for the intro and outro for interesting American killers stories.

Ari Shaffir’s album. I decided to do a slightly in depth analysis of my CD, Revenge for the Holocaust. This is the kind of thing I want to see more of in comedy. Discussing a standup recording the way an actor or director would discuss a movie. How were the bits concieved? What were the struggles associated with their development? Maybe a funny anecdote or two about the process. So here it is. If you’ve never heard my album before, enjoy. If you have heard it, here are some facts about it you may find interesting.

Episode Details

This was from an Arab night at the Laugh Factory.


This was a real early version of this story. I don’t know how I managed to make it pretty much twice as long for the finished product but I did and it’s way better on the album than here. It was not the first story I told on my storyteller show but it was definitely in the first year. I wasn’t doing this bit more than 8 months before I recorded it.

 

By the way, new This Is Not Happening stories start up this Tuesday and run every Tuesday until my second story airs in about 6 weeks. Before that, there’s some great ones from Jeff Dye, Steve Rannazzisi, Trevor Moore and others. Until then, here’s one of my favorites that’s also about shitting yourself. It’s a crime that it doesn’t have 100,000 views. Please share it.

Awesome story
