Will closes out 2020 and 10 years in New York City by talking to one of the first comics he met when he first moved to the city.

There aren't many comics Will gets nerdy about music gear with but Adam Newman is one.

Adam tells Will about his pre comedy days playing in pop punk and metal bands in New Hampshire, and Georgia before deciding to move to NYC to be a comic, getting involved with CollegeHumor  putting together late night sets, compared to putting together his Comedy Central half hour and his one hour special, touring as a comedian, scriptwriting, and how he plans to combine his music and comedy once the pandemic ends.
