An examination of Comedy, how it works, and why it sometimes doesn't. Created and Hosted by Comedian/Pianist Owen Benjamin

Customer Reviews

A rare glimpse into the evolution of one standup comedy bit after another

Benjamin pulls back the curtain and shows the process that a standup comedy bit goes through, from its initial, often tenuous idea, to a fully-formed, gut-busting, crowd-pleasing classic.

Other podcasts by comedians are focused more closely on the business of being a comedian, but this is the first one I’ve heard that commits itself to the process of comedy as a performance piece.

Much Needed Point of View

There are more comedy podcasts to count, but it’s a breath of fresh air to hear someone dissect why something doesn’t always work. Intelligent, hilarious, and endlessly intriguing.

Owen kills it again

I first heard Owen Benjamin on the WSY? Podcast, then watched his hour-special, High Five Till It Hurts, then on Sullivan and Son, and was pumped to hear he finally got a podcast up and running. Just listening to this guy makes you smarter and makes you laugh. I definitely recommend subscribing.
