Image-empty-state_edited_edited_edited_e


Who better to walk us through a history of standup comedy than the man who wrote the book on it, Wayne Federman, and authenticated, brilliant standup comedian Shawn Pelofsky. The first comedy club may have been a primitive weapon with some funny carvings, so we’re going back only as far as Mark Twain and Will Rogers and moving right on into podcasting and Tik Tok hilarity. Plus Fritz and Weezy are recommending American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins, The History of the Sitcom on CNN and Streaming, Ted Lasso on Apple +, The History of Stand-up: From Mark Twain to Dave Chappelle by Wayne Federman and, brace for impact, Weezy and Shawn take a deep dive into The Bachelor in Paradise.
