This week’s headliner, Brad Wenzel is one of the top young comics to come out of the Michigan Comedy Scene in years. With three appearances on Conan as well as an outstanding debut on Third Man Records entitled “Sweet Nothings”, he is yet another example of good things happening to really good people. Check out all his upcoming tour dates at www.bradcomedy.com. Drew Harmon is an outstanding comic now back in Michigan after many years as a staple on the San Francisco Comedy Scene. So good to have him back in Michigan and making his debut on the Castle Podcast. Check out all of Drew’s info at www.drewharmon.com. Brad had four shows this weekend at The Comedy Castle. Tix can be found at the link below.
This special episode of The Comedy Castle podcast has Tom and producer Joel Fragomeni interview comedian Mike Young about his twelve years on the road as the opener of the late comedy legend, Bob Saget. As a Michigander, Mike tells of Bob’s love of Detroit and The Comedy Castle, Bob’s unusual path to the starring role on Full House, and why no small town Subway was safe from Bob on the road. Mike also shares the details of Bob’s tribute show – coming soon to Netflix! – with Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, John Mayer and more. It’s a wonderful talk, hat shows how big the heart of Bob Saget was, and how much he’ll be missed by everyone. Also, Mike talks his upcoming made-in-Michigan movie, “Stealing Jokes” and the hilarious way he stays so humble. If that’s not enough, this week’s headliner, Quinn Patterson, can be heard on an archive episode here, and tix are at the link below.
This week’s headliner, Robert Mac is the epitome of a comic’s comic. A top notch joke writer with a delivery and style that is at the same time familiar yet totally unique. Think Steven Wright meets David Letterman meets the funny guy in the office that everyone likes. His new album “More On Robert Mac” is a great companion piece to his first record “Know More Robert Mac.” Make sure to check out both. Available on all platforms. Tickets for Robert’s shows this weekend can be found at the link below.

Fascinating stories from a quarter of a century in show business including how he landed an interview with Paul McCartney.
