[EP 136] Roller Skates & Parachute Pants feat. Joe Matarese!

Hola DigHeads! On this week’s episode, Josh and guest cohost comedian Stavros Halkias sit down in the green room of Magooby’s Joke House to talk to comedian, Joe Matarese! Joe’s a veteran stand up, he recently appeared on America’s Got Talent, and he also has a very successful podcast called “Fixing Joe.”

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!

[EP 133] That Monster Man! feat. Patton Oswalt!

Patton Oswalt is our guest on the podcast this week! Yes, it’s really him. It’s the real Patton Oswalt, of Comedians of Comedy, Werewolves and Lollipops, and Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D.! And no it’s not some, “we got him to say two words into the microphone, so technically he was a guest” crap, we actually sat down and did an interview with Patton Oswalt. And the man was cool. Beyond cool. Like, maybe-he-doesn’t-realize-how-famous-he-is, cool.

Josh, Mike, and Mike Finazzo are, not only eternally grateful for Patton to take the time to do this, but inspired too. Patton Oswalt was incredibly kind, and accommodating, told some great stories, gave advice, and he even thanked us for the interview after he bought us boys some spiced pumpkin lattes (it’s Fall!). Did we mention how amazingly cool Patton Oswalt is? Thanks so much Mr. Oswalt, your comedic brilliance is matched by your strong personal character!
