Been a little while, huh?
So I had an experience at a club this past weekend that really made me think so I decided to pick up this microphone and talk about it.
This is just a little insight into the mind of a comedian and how I dealt with a very abnormal circumstance.
Enjoy the therapy session.

After you listen to the podcast, watch the video here.
And here’s the audio of how I started my show:
Well it’s only been….4 months. Where’ve I been? Writing on a game show (www.FunnyYouShouldAsk.tv) but now that I’m on a cruise ship again for a couple of weeks, I brought out the ole computer and did another podcast; this time with comedian Orlando Leyba (www.Heylando.com).
We talked about his early career; getting started a little later in life and what he thinks about working a ship for the second time.
Thanks for listening guys, enjoy the show!

Greetings from the moving vehicle. This week I’m sitting in my car while comedian and my wife, Allison Weber (www.AllisonComedy.com) drives. We are in the middle of a tour and decided to have a little roadcast.
This week we talk about a bit about our relationship and ways of looking at our lives. Kind of a personal one, but always fun.

Hey kids, welcome to another WFD.
This week I’m with dueling piano player and buddy, Ben Michaels (https://www.facebook.com/bmichaels88). This talk was so much fun that I spread it into 2 different episodes.
This week we talk about how he got started in music and dueling. And our days as south Florida boys.

Greetings from Germany! Seriously, I’m in Germany now on the Couples of Comedy Tour right now with my lovely wife Allison Weber and comedy couple Rebekah Kochan & Dante.
So far we’ve been to 5 different countries and still have 3 more to go…and it’s been unreal. We’re recording on our tour bus (thankfully we got all the plane rides out of the way first; 16 flights in 15 days. One word “Oy”) as we drive through the German countryside.
On the show we talk about the tour, what we’ve done and seen and what’s it like to tour with each other. Hopefully we can record at least one more before the tour ends.

Welcome to episode 200!!!!!! Personally I don’t think we look a day over episode 45, but hey…

Hello all, welcome to the first show of 2017 and episode 198.
This week we sit down with comedian Matt Kirshen (www.MattKirshen.com); a very funny comic from the UK who’s been over here for a decade now and killing it. This week though the show is light on laughs and heavy on debate as he and the lovely Allison (www.AllisonComedy.com) go back and forth about cancer and conspiracies. Honestly, you don’t hear too much from me as I’m just sitting back and enjoying the show.
Again, this episode doesn’t have many laughs, but it is very interesting to hear two opposing sides of a very intense debate.
Matt & Allison deep in debate.
Listen to WFD #198: Matt Kirshen
