Blackout Diaries is Awesome
Sean Flannery is hysterical. The live show at the Lincoln Lodge is a blast. Check this podcast out, yo.
We've all got drunk stories.
This is a great compilation that we can all relate to. Hilarious!
I live far away from Chicago and enjoyed the stories Sean Flannery has told on other podcasts (as well as his standup and The Visitors Locker Room show) I've heard have not been able to see The Black Out Diaries in one man show or showcase form so I was VERY happy to see that it has finally turned into a podcast. The first episode was great and I didn't want it to end.
