Josh and Zac grew up together in a special little pocket of Maryland called Kent Island. So, the fellas have a nice catch up session combined with a full report of Zac’s life as a rock and roller, attempts not to gush when you meet your idols, and what happens when your drummer does PCP at a Belgian rock festival. Fun ep!
Hola DigHeads! On a very special, bonus episode, Josh and Mike have a phone-convo with comedian JT Haberssaat. JT has apperaed on Comedy Central, has performed with Henry Rollins, Doug Standhope, and Brian Posehn, and even acted alongside Ron Jeremy in the (technically, non-pornagraphic) Toxic Avenger 4. He is currently headlining the Altercation Punk Comedy Tour, the Bmore stop of which will be featuring Josh and Mike as openers.
The boys get in depth with JT about his DIY, “Black Flag-style,” of touring, and why he prefers to avoid the mainstream comedy circuit, and just do the whole damn thing himself. Thanks for the call-in JT, this was a very fun and interesting conversation!
Topics in the ep include: Matt Mcconaughey and Tom Cruise dying their hair, black rooms, Joe’s early struggles doing stand up in NYC and Florida, comedians wearing bowling shirts, and in a truly universal moment of kismet / time is a flat circle moment – Josh realizes that Joe was one of the first comedians he ever saw on MTV’s Spring Break comedy show. It was a hell of a moment, brother!
Matt was nice enough to down at a coffee shop in Baltimore and discuss VEEP, what it’s like to hang with Baltimore’s mayor and Maryland’s governor, the early days of doing stand up, Dog Bites Man stories, DCM, the Chicago Improv Festival, and much more!
This was a great time and we can’t wait to do it again! We talk all sorts of business, from Tommy’s construction of a Necromican, to Chris’ bachelor party at Hell House, to Brandon’s opinions on Bmore vs. DC, to Ben’s (once again) defense of eating raw chicken like’s it’s just ok.
