Comedian Steve Hofstetter is well known for heckler videos, and as a comedy club owner, but Will knows him as his former boss who once kept him from getting punched in the face. 

He talks to Will about the days of the Laughing Devil Comedy Club, growing up in numerous neighborhoods in Queens, being exposed to political comedy early in life, starting stand up comedy and producing shows in NYC in the early 2000s, his early days on the road and performing in colleges, and a great story of a road trip he took with his father shortly before he passed away with comedian Dick Gregory.

Episode 87 - Tom Rhodes

 

Comedian Tom Rhodes has toured the world performing Stand up Comedy.

 

He talks to Will about a rough year spent in NYC early in his career based on the advice of Jay Leno, the San Francisco comedy scene in the early 90s, being the first comedian to sign with Comedy Central, his friendship with Mitch Hedberg, wanting to know who a comic is through their jokes, and how his short lived NBC Sitcom led to him touring and performing comedy in over 20 countries all over the world and hosting a Late Night Talk Show in Amsterdam.

 

Plus Will recounts the story of the time he navigated Police Blockades in Istanbul, Turkey on Labor Day on the same day that he performed Stand Up Comedy on a sold out show of mostly non-english speakers.
