Married Magicians from Canada...? Whaaaaaaaa?

I can't emphasize how much fun it is to hang with these two. OR how much fun their show is. They work off each other better than any two magicians I've ever seen. Sure, I've never seen "Penn and Teller", but that kind of adds to the legitimicy of my statement. They are reall great on stage and just as much fun for me here on this show. Great Podcast, if...

Played TK's Comedy Club in Dallas back in August. TK and I go waaay back. We did shows together in LA. Then, he moved Dallas and opened his own club. Yet another example of my "Comedians make the best club owners" theory. Great shows, steaks, cigar patio... and a somewhat "legal" speakeasy down stairs. If you find yourself in Dallas... Go check it out. Liked it so much, I'm going back twice next year. ...

I met Quincy Carr on the  @norwegiancruiseline Bliss. Great comic and a great guy. He's brand ir "Quality  Comedy", a smart creative way to produce a "cleaner" comedy. Great to watch him work. We sat around and talked about the biz of being a stand up. One of my favorite things to talk about and one of the main reasons I produce this show.

Worked with Magen at TK's in Dallas. Great week. New she'd be great for the show and she was. We talk about the comedy class she teaches, stand-up, dating and even some politics. She knows a ton about stand-up. So much, we lost track of time. I also had to edit out about twenty minutes of stuff that...... well, lets just say i did it to protect the innocent.

Steve Mazan and I did the live stream show. We chatted about movies, his podcast, living him Chicago and his weak ass WiFi signal. He also turned me on to the movie "Stardust". He was right.
