The best podcast (I've produced)
There's no denying that this is the best podcast series that I've produced.
Incredible and in depth look at the pathway of a stand-up comedian
I love the episodes that are both funny and insightful. Morry asks the difficult questions and gets his interviewees sharing some deep secrets.
Really worth a listen.
One of the best comedy podcasts out there. The best one out there if you are interested in how stand up works.
