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.
