Holy hell this is a good one! Monroe Martin is a hilarious young stand up who will be filming his new special very soon!
The Philadelphia native talks to Josh and Mike about growing up in foster care and group homes, starting comedy in Philly, and giving back to the family he has. This was a inspirational and truly fun talk.
While there were some technical difficulties (Josh forgot to record the first 10 minutes of the pod, like an idiot), the boys had a great talk in a basement before Jared’s show about starting out in Chicago, grown ups that are into Disney, is comedy art?, moving to New York, setting goals, and terrible TV gigs!
Joey’s production company is Across the Bridge. And you should check out all of his work. He’s amazing. And he grew up on the same island with Josh! Joey gave Josh a shot to “act” in a great short that Joey recently did called First Promise which you can see right here – WATCH IT THIS 3 MINUTE FILM! Josh talks to Joey about how he got his start, working at Def Jam, and of course, God.
