Ep189.Comedians Vince Morris & Michael Blaustein are living proof that comedy is indeed black & white
Episode189 with comedians Vince Morris & Michael Blaustein and this episode is by far the most extensive chat on racial relations ever. Vince has a very interesting take on this as he has seen and lived through people who were racist and also to his father who fought in Korea. Yes, it was a different time but when you grow up in that kind of environment yes, it does make a difference. It's a good one folks and it's all at Howienave.com

Episode 188 with comedians John Caponera & Alycia Cooper on information overload & how it filters into comedy. Topics include John wishing politics wouldn't be a part of sports and Alycia suggesting a compromise, the passing of Playboy founder Hugh Heffner segueing into how easy it is for kids to access sexually explicit material on the Internet (John's a father of sons and a daughter so he has a unique perspective) and priorities balancing art in the classroom versus a city in Texas paying 72 million dollars on a football stadium at the high school level!

Ep187.Across the board comedy with comedian-actor Adam Ray, 'How he got his first agent' Sandy Danto and perennial host David Gee
Episode 187 is uploaded and features comedian-actor Adam Ray, 'How he got his first agent' Sandy Danto and perennial host David Gee who also played host at Budd Friedman's book launch party at the LA Improv where I drove down from Lake Tahoe down to Los Angeles in 8 hours. Some great stories between the four of us and I think you'll enjoy this episode because of it.

Ep181.Comedians Jenny Zigrino & Chris Fairbanks (don't call them newbies in the biz but to Lake Tahoe more so)
Episode 181 with comedians Jenny Zigrino & Chris Fairbanks. Yes, I've referred to them as 'newbies-to-the-Lake' but not newbies in the comedy biz. On this episode everything from unintentional audience participation to experiencing things that still shock you when you thought you've seen it all! With South Lake Tahoe as the backdrop and this being their first time on our stage I'm reminded that being up here is still a much better choice (for your host) than being in a place such as Los Angeles.
