Comedian Mark Reiss was one of the first people Will meet upon moving to NYC, and then Mark disapeared for the better part of two years. Mark sits down to chat with Will about where he was during that time and how coming to terms with himself made him happier as a person and funnier as a comic, as well as starting out in punk bands in high school, early family life in the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia), comedy, and mental health.
