Basements, dim back rooms, the dive-iest of dive bars, at 9:00 PM on a weeknight: this is where comedy is born. Not at The Apollo or on HBO, but at open mic nights. This is where all great comics get their start and where the bad ones toil and sweat in the hopes of maybe, one day, becoming less bad. Peter Bresnan happens to be the latter type, and TELL ME I'M FUNNY is a new podcast series that follows his attempts to succeed as a stand-up comedian, presented as candidly as possible, good jokes and bad ones. Follow him in his sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes bizarre journey through the lower circles of comedy.

Inspirational, Emotional, and Entertaining
I admire Peter for taking a chance and following his dreams. He is very open about his hopes, dreams, and insecurities. The podcast gives us a peek inside his journey to become a comedian, and it's fascinating to witness his process and commitment to make it happen. The show is the perfect length...not too long and not too short. I would like to hear some more content from his stand up act.
Totally fascinating and endearing
A super interesting look into the grind of becoming a comedian. Plus, this guy is actually funny. Really looking forward to more!
Peter is awesome!
This is a really fun podcast! I love hearing Peter’s standup! :) It’s fascinating to learn about his process!
