Matt Braunger is known as one of the country’s best comics and one of the funniest podcast guests. So the pressure is on Joel to make it a good one, and thankfully – almost completely due to Matt – it is. Matt compares Detroit with his hotbed of Portland, tells you how the Chicago comedy scene shaped his act, and riffs on why guys named Robert are called Rob and not Bob. Funny stuff! Also, find out why Matt aped Bob Seger for his album cover, and it’s great. Matt has five shows this weekend at the club. Tickets can be found at the link below.
Comedian and actor Emma Willmann joins Joel in advance of her Comedy Castle debut this Sunday January 29th. As you’ll hear, Emma had previously played a bowling somewhere in the Great Lake State, but rest assured, you couldn’t hear the pins! Emma talks about being addicted to comedy documentaries, why cancel culture is unfair to comedians, why one comic’s writing process is not for everyone and so much more. You’ll also hear about what happens when Jerry Seinfeld pops in to a NYC comedy club! It’s funny! Tix for Emma’s shows can be found at the link below and Tom’s talk with our sold-out weekend headliner, Brad Williams from 2021 can be found right here.
