Greetings my friends and welcome to another fun, interesting and totally insightful episode of WFD.
This week I welcome comedian, friend and road warrior, Dwayne Perkins (www.DwaynePerkins.com). I met Dwayne in Omaha, NE many years ago and we’ve remained friends and I’ve remained a fan.
We talk about his early comedy career, bad comedy experiences and what fashion trends he’d love to bring back.
Skippy is here too so you know it’s going to get weird.
Listen to WFD #107: Dwayne Perkins
Hey there kids and welcome to WFD #106. This week I sit with comic and friend, Jimmy D (www.JimmyDellaValle.com) about a few different things, but mostly comedy. Jimmy has the same passion for comedy as I do and you can hear it in this show. Plus Jimmy shares a few great road stories.
Listen to WFD #106: Jimmy D
Did you ever have one of those days where you thought, “Hmmm…there’s my wife doing laundry – HEY, LET’S DO A PODCAST!” Wow, me too!
Yes, this podcast happens while Allison folds some laundry and we talk about various topics including: Her trip she’s about to take to NY, old products that kids today will never know & you get a little glimpse into how my writing process works…plus Skippy stops by and the tables are turned on him.
Listen to WFD #105: Me & Allison (Laundry Day)
First Cracker Barrel now a Dennys; apparently I’m most creative when I’m hungry.
Welcome to Episode #104 (and sorry for a 3 week absence) as I sit and chat with magician, illusionist & fellow cruise ship performer, John Shaw (www.youtube.com/user/OriginalSynners). This show was really interesting to me because as John discusses the life of a traveling magician, I can’t help but be amazed how it mirrors the life of a comedian.
Sit back & enjoy!
Listen to WFD #104: John Shaw
Here we are my friends, once again recording & driving and not giving a shit for mine or Allison’s personal safety.
This week myself & Allison (www.AllisonComedy.com) are driving back from a nice weekend with some friends and decided to record our thoughts. This episode is pretty relationship heavy; we talk about past loves & our marriage at this point. Per usual, Allison says something that makes me think of a funny/dickish (but still funny) thing to say, I say it, she gets mad, I feel bad and life goes on.
Enjoy the show!!
Listen to WFD #103: Me & Allison In The Car
Wow, what a shitty show this is…and not the quality, but the content. Yes, it’s a poop-centric kinda show as a show favorite and buddy, Darren Carter (www.DarrenCarter.com) stops by and almost immediately, so does Dan, a plumber.
We “shit”-chat with Dan about his job, and Darren and I talk about our shit stories…I have 2. That’s not a pun with the “number 2”; I really have 2 poop stories.
Enjoy the show!!!
Me, Darren & Dan:

Here we are, episode 101 and yet it is a part 2 of episode 100. Confused? Well don’t be, it’s just another fun episode with comedian David Nickerson (www.DavidnNickersonComedy.com). This week we continue our talks about comedy and explain our idea for open mike bingo. Next time you’re at a comedy club, try playing it. Also Allison gets a little upset because…well, you’ll see. And, unfortunately, Skippy Greene couldn’t make it on this episode, but his spirit came…which is very much like Skippy anyway. Enjoy!
Listen to WFD #101: David Nickerson (C-Word/N-Word’s pt. 2)
100 Episodes!! I can’t believe we’ve actually reached 100 episodes. Unreal. Thanks so much to our loyal friends who have been avid listeners; it really means so much to all of us. So as a real fun treat, our guest this week is the guy who I initially started this podcast with, David Nickerson (www.DavidnNickersonComedy.com). This week talk a lot about comedy, busting balls, plus Allison (www.AllisonComedy.com) comes up with an “interesting” phrase which is where the title of this episode came from. And, of course, Skippy Greene stops by with a little twist to his regular question. Enjoy!
Listen to WFD #100!!!: David Nickerson (C-Word/N-Word’s pt. 1)
Hej!…that means “hi” in Sweden, because that’s where I am right now, Stockholm, Sweden. I’m over here doing some shows with my guest, comedian Sean Savoy (www.SavoysWorld.com).
We are taping at the apartment of our friend/promotor Behrang (who you hear every so often on the episode).
Enyoy (that’s Swedish for “enjoy”) the hilarity!
Listen to WFD #99: Sean Savoy
Ahoy mateys, this week I am coming to you from the Norwegian GETAWAY, a cruise ship where I am working…well, sort of, as the boat was docked for 5 days in NY for the Superbowl – side note – Sorry Denver.
This week I’m talking to one of the other comics on board, Patrick Keane (www.citizenkeane.com). We are set up in the library on the ship; how studious, no? Topics on today’s show range from: comedy influences, dating comedians, “why we do this”, Woody Allen & cruise ship audiences.
Skippy Greene drops by too, he’s done a lot of cruises before. As he’s said, “I was on the Titanic fooling around with Molly Brown. Unsinkable my ass, that chick went down A LOT!” Enjoy!
Listen to WFD #98: Patrick Keane
So here’s part 2 of Darren Carter (www.DarrenCarter.com) and my lunch at Cracker Barrel.
We pick up as Darren talks about fatherhood, Jonathon makes another appearance and Darren tells a really amazing story about his youth…it gets pretty real.
Listen to WFD #96: What’s For Lunch pt. 2
Darren’s back for a second week in a row and this time not only are we in the car…we’re at Cracker Barrel!
Yes Darren (@DarrenCarter) and I, still in Columbia, MO, decided to take the podcast out to lunch.
Part 1 of this episode hears us looking for a destination, talking about the various folks at Cracker Barrel, meeting a real cool server, Jonathan, and just random talk that you’d expect from two comics.
Stay tuned for part 2 next week!
Listen to WFD #96: What’s For Lunch pt. 1
*THIS EPISODE IS COMING OUT EARLY BECAUSE I’M WORKING ON A CRUISE AND I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL HAVE WIFI*
“On the road again…” with Darren Carter! (www.DarrenCarter.com) Yes, I am, once again, in the car recording a podcast with my buddy Darren…or, Der-ron.
We are working together this week in Columbia, MO so we decided, while driving to our gig, to do a little show. Always fun when Darren’s on the show.
This week we yap about: Partying, old insecurities, strip clubs and fireworks and more. Plus Skippy Greene & “Snoop Dogg” pay a visit.
Listen to WFD #95: Me and Darren Carter in the Car…ter?
*THIS EPISODE IS COMING OUT EARLY BECAUSE I’M ABOUT TO GO ON A CRUISE AND I DON’T KNOW IF I’LL HAVE WIFI*
94! Almost at the big 100 mark. So amazing.
Very excited about this weeks guest, because he’s a first timer in the ol’ studio/living room, it’s comedian Eddie Ifft! (www.EddieIfft.com). Eddie is incredibly funny, and like me, loves to tour abroad. And as Skippy Greene would say, “I tour a broad everyday! SCOOBY-DOO!”
Topics this week include: the evolution of comedy writing, Eddie’s childhood, how he hid is comedy career from his family, capitalism and drinking. More serious than funny this week, but still incredibly interesting.
Listen to WFD #94: Eddie Ifft
“Hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to dinner we go…” Hello my friends and welcome to another “whatever” filled episode of What’s For Dinner.
This week we welcome back Patrick Melton (www.pmelt.com) to the show…though he’s still a little upset that he hasn’t surpassed Darren Carter’s record. Topics on today’s episode include: bitcoin, working the road, the alamo in San Antonio, pot & living with women. Of course I live with the best woman, Allison! (by laws of marriage, I had to say that…though I would’ve anyway)
And the lovely Allison and pervy Skippy are here as well. Enjoy!
Listen to WFD #93: Patrick Melton
Hiya! This week it’s just Allison & myself in the living room/studio for our 93rd show. Oh how time flies.
On this show topics range from (literally) what’s for dinner, I open the show with a pretty cool announcement and we close the show and discuss our distain for some reality TV. Kardashians??? Fucking seriously???
Skippy stops by with a change up to his usual type of questions. Oooo…mysterious.
Talk to you next week!
Listen to WFD 92: Me & Allison
Happy first week of 2014 everybody.
This week, Allison and myself welcome comedian Richy Leis (@RichyLeis) to the studio/living room.
The show today features one of the most epic “comedy stories” – it even rivals Craig Gass’s story (if you don’t remember that one, listen to it after this show and compare) – as a matter of fact, the entire last half hour of the show IS the story. So buckle up and enjoy.
Listen to WFD #91: Richy Leis
Holy Sh*t, 90 episodes!!! 90!!!! 10 away from a centenial! What better way to celebrate than to have our friend and comedian Cole Parker back on the show. (www.youtube.com/user/CompletelyGreat) The show starts out with the prime example of why Allison & I are perfect for each other.
Then delve into my anal-retentiveness when it comes to making plans and keeping to time. I stand by my opinion, btw. The show goes from serious to silly and back again and back. Enjoy this, the last episode of 2013 and we will see you next year.
Listen to WFD #90: Cole Parker
WFD 89: WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!!!!! Do NOT listen to this episode at work (unless you’re wearing headphones), do NOT listen to this with kids in the room and DO NOT listen if you’re embarrassed about sex.
In case you can’t tell, things get really, really sexual on this episode as our friend and adult film actor/producer/director Phil Varone returns (www.PhilVarone.com). As if nothing could top Phil’s last visit, this time we talk about porn, sexual escapades, we watch clips from Gene Simmons sex tape (yes, there really is one) and from cakefarters.com (yes, that’s a real website & yes, it is exactly what it sounds like…and it’s HILARIOUS!).
Phil also brought along a friend, Anal Addy, who has her own podcast, and she tells an (alleged) true story about what a celebrity said while getting “serviced”. Again, it’s alleged…because I don’t want to be sued.
Allison & Skippy are here as well.
So plug in your headphones, leave your prudishness at the door and enjoy.
** Again, just to be sure, this episode is VERY graphic **
Listen to WFD #89: Phil Varone & Anal Addy
Here’ssssssssssssssssss….Darren! Yes Darren Carter (www.DarrenCarter.com) is back; let’s face it, he’s part of the family here, so we love having him.
This week we talk about this podcast (Darren is a true fan, which is nice), Christmas and we hear some of Allison’s new dirty Christmas songs and we here Skippy Greene’s Christmas song, “GBX” (available on iTunes).
It’s a really fun show, enjoy it my friends!
WFD #88: Darren Carter
Adam Richmond returns to the studio/living room today! Oh what joy!
Today is a kinda mellow/serious episode. Adam and I talk about some road gigs, and a lot of life,the lessons we learn and how we deal with them.
Enjoy the journey.
Listen to WFD #87: Adam Richmond
“On the road again…”; yes my friends, I come to you, again, from a moving vehicle. At this point I should just call the show “What’s The Mileage?”
Anyway, this week I’m driving with my brother, Darren, and my lovely partner in goofiness, Allison (www.DirtyGuitarGirl.com) returns to the show after a long absence. We are driving to Naples, FL. for some family time and decided that we should make this into an episode. Topics range from family memories to awkward family memories…and a lot of other stuff in between. Enjoy!
Listen to WFD #86: Me, Allion & My Brother in the car
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends! Happy Hanukkah to all of my Jewish friends! And happy weekend to everyone else!
Well, being the time for family and giving thanks, and since I am presently staying with my parents, I thought it would be fun to have my dad, Stu, on the show once again.
We talked a little about life, about his early jobs, about family and a couple of dirty jokes. Lift up your pants because the sentimental bullshit got kinda deep here. 🙂
Have a great holiday and enjoy the show!
WFD #85: My Dad (Happy Thanksgiving/Hanukkah/Whatever)
Once again I come to you from the back of the tour bus as we head to the airport and return to normal life.
I’m joined again by Mike Tsirklin (www.RealPotheads.com), Brian Swinehart (twitter.com/bswine), George (our military contact) and Adam Hunter (www.AdamHunter.com), who comes in and out of the conversation.
As the tour wraps up, we talk about our favorite and funniest moments from the tour (including when I wanted to kill Adam…though that lasted for a total of 5 minutes), and also a little discussion about how things have changed regarding the content of the shows.
It was really an amazing tour and I want to thank all of the wonderful audiences, the AFE (twitter.com/ArmedForcesEnt), our driver, Mike and the comedians for making this so much fun.
Enjoy the show!

I’M ON A BUS MOTHERF**KER! Greetings once again from a moving vehicle. This week I’m broadcasting from a tour bus while I travel through Europe for the ARMED FORCES ENTERTAINMENT. I’m joined on this episode by comedians Brian Swinehart (@bswine) and Mike Tsirklin (@russiancomic). The other comic, Adam Hunter, was sleeping. Wuss.
This week we discuss the tour so far (this is only our 5th day out of 12), childhood bullies, the red light district of Brussels…which of course leads us to some in depth sex talk…which of course leads us to Skippy Greene.
Listen to WFD #83: Live in Europe from the Tour Bus!
Guess who’s joining me as I make my return to the studio/living room?…Well if you read the title of this episode, you know, but in case you just jumped right in, IT’S DARREN CARTER! (www.DarrenCarter.com)
Darren stops by for a bit (actually, this is one of the longer shows we’ve had) and we discuss comedy, road stories, a lot of “Weird Al”, and, for some reason, “Gay, black, midget farmers.”
Enjoy the randomness.
Listen to WFD #82: Darren Carter is BAAACK!
And so it goes, I’m once again in my car, doing some driving, talking to myself while talking into a microphone. I swear, I should change the name of this podcast to WHAT’S THE PRICE OF GAS?
So enjoy my ramblings about life, comedy, driving and whatnot. Hope you like this insight into the mind of a road comic doing what he does most of the time…drive.
Listen to WFD #81: Me In The Car Again
Episode 80!!! Holy smoke in a bottle of shit!!! (that’s an old Russian expression my grandmother used to use).
This week I’m at THE WORLD SERIES OF COMEDY in Las Vegas.
You might remember that last week I was recording as I drove home FROM the World Series. I just like to do things backwards sometimes; it sometimes can be awkward when Allison and I make love.
Anywhoo…this week I’m talking with my friend and Florida comedian, Forrest Shaw (www.ForrestShaw.net). We talk about the competition, Thai massages, dating comics and he reminded me why I’m such a nice guy.
Skippy Greene drops by as well…but then again, it wouldn’t be WFD without him, now would it?
Listen to WFD #80: Forrest Shaw
Hey guess where we’re at this week? That’s right, I’m driving in my car again! This time I’m joined by comedian Dave Williamson (www.DaveWilliamsonComedy.com) as we drive back from the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas.
Dave and I discuss how the festival went, how he got started and how, for a short time, he and his whole family lived and traveled the country in an RV…it’s like a white version of the movie “ARE WE THERE YET”, or a funny version of the movie “RV”.
Enjoy the drive time.
Listen to WFD: 79 Dave Williamson
Hey kids, going to make this short because I am on a tour and the wifi here sucks.
This episode I’m driving back from Lansing, MI to catch my flight and decided to do a solo driving podcast. All I really remember about this one is that I got kinda personal and even doubted if I should upload it. But ya know what, you guys are my friends so I know you won’t judge me too bad. 🙂
Hello all, hope you are having a great Tuesday today This week I sit down in Ft. Wayne, IN with comedian/magician/all around entertainer, Keith Fields (www.KeithFields.com). Keith is a really great guy and an exceptional performer. We talked about comedy all week, though on the podcast we talked a lot about career and life…as per usual on this show.
Oh, next weeks show might be delayed because I will be on a military tour and I might not have access to wife…I mean wifi; though my wife will be inaccessible as well.
Listen to WFD 77: Keith Fields
Hey guys, this week we (as in Allison and myself) are joined by comedian and buddy, Mike Batayeh (www.MikeBatayeh.com).
Our subjects range from LOST (and why I liked the ending…SPOILERS!) to comedy.
Listen to WFD #76: Mike Batayeh
Get your motor running…cause this week (on our 75th show!!) we are broadcasting from my car! That’s right, What’s For Dinner has gone mo-bile.
This week Allison and I are driving back home after my week in Vegas, and comedian David Gee (www.DavidGeeComedy.com) came along for the ride. So we figured, hey, what better way to kill some time then to do a podcast…incidentally, Allison is driving so don’t think that I’m holding a microphone, driving a car and being charming as hell all at once. 🙂
David is a 30+ year veteran of comedy and it was a real treat to talk old school comedy, the many shows he had done and his stories of meeting many classic comedians, including Groucho Marx.
Oh yeah, Skippy is here too, did I forget to mention that? Sorry. Enjoy!
Listen to WFD #75: David Gee
David, Kevin Pollack, me & Allison after our week in Vegas.
74 episodes later and I’m still trying to get the hang of this whole “podcast” thing.
This week our buddy & comedian, Brian Monarch (www.BrianMonarch.com) comes by to the studio/living room. Per usual, we talk comedy and early life with Brian. We get deep, we get silly…we get dilly.
Allison & Skippy are here (you’re welcome), so enjoy!
Listen to WFD #74: Brian Monarch
Hi there and welcome to this, #73, in the ever going saga of this podcast.
This week I’m in the living room/studio with comedian Brett Gilbert (www.BrettGilbert.com). We discuss comedy, his inevitable fatherhood and why Brett is wearing sunglasses most of the show.
Consume and enjoy!
Here are some pics from the show:
Listen to WFD #73: Brett Gilbert
Heydee-Hidee-Ho! Hope you guys are ready for dinner…god, that sounded stupid.
This week I sit with my friend and comedian Lenny Schmidt (www.LennySchmidt.com). We talk about his life working cruise ships as of late and about his recent divorce. Things go from light to heavy and, what do you know, back to light again.
Consume and enjoy.
Listen to WFD #72: Lenny Schmidt
Hi kids, today I sit in the living room/studio with comedian and buddy, Brian Dunkleman (www.BrianDunkleman.com).
We talk a lot about Brian’s gig as co-host on the very first season of American Idol, and the aftermath that happened after he chose to leave the show. (all I can say is I have a new respect for him as a comic and a person; very strong guy). We also take a sharp left and discuss our first time masturbating…hey, it wouldn’t be a show without some dirty talk, now would it?
Listen to WFD #71: Brian Dunkleman
Wow, number 70! Seems like yesterday we were only at 69. Waka-waka!
This week I talk shop with my friend and comedian KT Tatara (www.KTTatara). We recorded this at Flappers Comedy Club before our shows that night.
This is definitely a comedy heavy episode, so enjoy it kids!
Listen to WFD #70: KT Tatara
Hey Dinnerfolks…that’s what I’m gonna call you, Dinnerfolks.
This week a show favorite, Darren Carter (www.DarrenCarter.com) stops by the living room/studio for another fun filled visit. This week we, along with Allison (www.DirtyGuitarGirl.com) talk some fun stuff and serious…just call it “serious fun”. Enjoy the ride Dinnerfolk.
Listen to WFD #69: Darren Carter
And we’re back! After a week off I got myself a brand new recorder (which I plug in the new few shows). So everything should be hunky dory from now on…doesn’t “hunky dory” sound like a really well built version of the fish Ellen Degeneres voices from “Finding Nemo”? Get it? The fish’s name was Dorrie? Nevermind. Anywho, this week Allison and I are on the road in Fresno so we decided to do a hotel podcast…and, as usual, we open up WAY too much about our marriage. Enjoy!
Listen to WFD #68: Me & Allison (Dinner On The Road)
Hey guys, I’m going to be taking a little break from the show for a week or two.
I go into a little detail on the “episode”.
Thanks for the love; technology is a fucking bitch!
Listen to WFD Apology…break time
Hiya folks! This week Allison and I sit and discuss a few things, such as our 2 year wedding anniversary (which had just happened, thank you), how she started smoking marijuana and I reveal a rather embarrassing story that just solidified my status as “geek”.
Listen to WFD #66: Allison & Me
Hiddy Ho there neighborino’s! Today comedian/buddy Erik Passoja (www.Passoja.com) returns to the show. The show hits a lot of subjects, but mainly I ask him what it’s like to be a comedian and a father…and let’s just say he’s pretty honest. 🙂 Enjoy!
Listen to WFD #65: Erik Passoja
It always feels nice to have familiar faces return to the show, and this week one of my favs is back, “The Party Starter”, Darren Carter (www.DarrenCarter.com).
This week we talk about past episodes – who knew Darren was a fan – about life, love, truth and a bit of silliness. We also try (and eventually succeed) to hear Snoop Lion’s new commercial for “Hot Pockets”.
Allison & Skippy are here as usual, and you’ll notice the special opening theme song as provided by Darren’s son. Enjoy!
Listen to WFD #64: Darren Carter is baaaack!
Hey, it’s another Tuesday, so another day of wishing it was Friday already.
Well hopefully this chat with my buddy Adam Richmond (www.AdamRichmondComedy.com) will cheer you up. Adam and I discuss the state of comedy today and what makes us, as comedians, tick. Allison is absent this week (boo!!) but she’ll be back next week, so don’t you fret my friends. As always, thanks for the love people.
Listen to WFD #63: Adam Richmond
62! We’re at 62 people! I’m just going to start celebrating mundane milestones now. “Holy shit, we’ve done 62 episodes!!!”
This week Ally & I are joined by a good friend of ours, Adam Hunter (www.AdamHunter.com). We talk about comedy and about the jobs we had before doing
comedy. Six words for you “Spider-Man in a porn shop” and leave it at that. And Adam also talks about what it was like doing The Tonight Show.
Skippy is here as well, so enjoy the filth and funnyness…is that a word? Screw it, it is now.
Listen to WFD #62: Adam Hunter
What’s for dinner tonight? On the menu…oh god, that sounds so fucking stupid. Let’s start again:
Hey all, this week Allison & I sit down in the studio/living room with John Diresta (www.JohnDiresta.com). John is an incredibly funny comedian and actor who’s also so down to earth and “real”. No bullshit; nothing. And on this show John (with his son Matt, who didn’t really talk much) pretty much takes over with all kinds of amazing stories from his life as a comic and his life as an NYC cop.
Sit back, relax and enjoy…and leave a nice comment while you’re at it.
Listen to WFD #61: John Diresta
EPISODE 60!!!! Wow, I can’t believe that. I need to thank you all for listening and supporting; it means more than you all know.
On this episode, Allison and I are the studio/living room and we talk mainly about fears. I start by mentioning how I am making some changes in my career, and by doing so conquered a (sorta) fear I’ve had. Then we talk about how I overcame my fears of scary movies…yes, I’m a pussy. And Allison talks about what her fears are.
Then things got weird for a second as I was a total dick and forgot an amazing thing that just happened for Allison…but we get past it.
There’s a small glitch at the top of the show…sorry ’bout that. 🙂 Then again, after 60 episodes, would you expect anything else?
Listen to WFD #60: Me & Allison
I’m very excited with the guest this week, one of my oldest comedy friends and a bit of a mentor to me, Jimmy Shubert sits with me and Allison this week! (www.JimmyShubert.com). This show is a bit on the serious/candid side as we discuss a lot about comedy and Jimmy’s journey, then we suddenly change gears and talk about cooking and why Jimmy’s enjoying the single life now…not that he isn’t looking ladies.
Plus I show him a few pictures from his (and my) youth. Here’s one of them: http://www.flipschultz.com/pictures/scrap/mejimmyshubert.jpg
As always Allison and Skippy drop by…btw, Skippy’s question this week is REALLY f**king out there.
Listen to WFD #59: Jimmy Shubert
First of all, sorry for the lack of episode last week. There was such a technical f**k up that there was no way to upload it. But the guest that I had last week, Darren Carter (www.DarrenCarter.com) returned and we had an even better time shooting the sh*t and making each other laugh.
Listen to WFD #58: Darren Carter
