Budd Friedman and Trip Whetsell talk about their new book “The Improv: An Oral History of the Comedy Club that Revolutionized Stand-Up.” Comics Sean Donnelly, Dave Sirus and Farah Brook talk Sean Spicer, Emmys, and why we shouldn’t forgive anybody associated with Donald Trump.

Jeet Heer is a Canadian author, comic critic, literary critic and journalist. He is a senior editor of The New Republic and as of 2014 was writing a doctoral thesis at York University in Toronto. He has written for publications including The National PostThe New YorkerThe Paris Review, and Virginia Quarterly Review and was on the 2016 jury for the Scotiabank Giller Prize. Heer has published several books, including: Sweet Lechery (2014) In Love with Art (2013).

Often referred to as the “Naughty Dear Abby,” Lora Somoza is a sex educator, advice columnist and the host of the weekly podcast, "Between the Sheets with Lora Somoza." (www.LoraSomoza.com)  
Lora writes an online sex advice column that goes out bi-weekly to over 30,000 loyal readers all over the world with circulation growing everyday. Known for her blunt, straight talk laced with her own brand of humor, her readers are fiercely loyal followers. 

She is also the host of the weekly "Between the Sheets with Lora" where she and a wider variety of guest discuss every topic related to sex, blending education and entertainment. (Available both on iTunes and on her website)

Lora graduated from UCLA with a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing. After spending seven years working in the film industry honing her skills in script development, she turned her talents towards freelance journalism writing articles for various online magazines. 

Realizing the needs of what her readers really wanted to hear, she started immersing herself in the research of all things SEX. She interviewed hundreds of couples, experts in the field and read every book on the subject she could get her hands on.

When he’s not catching a nap with his bulldog, Rickles, Sean Donnelly can be found headlining clubs and festivals all over the country. He has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan and NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Sean co-hosts the podcast Defend Your Movie with Farah Brook. He released his debut comedy album “Manual Labor Face” in 2015 on Comedy Central Records. Sean has been featured on the truTV series World’s Dumbest and Almost Genius as well as Adam Devine’s House Party, The Half Hour, Broad City, and Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central, Amazon’s Alpha House, GSN’s Lie Detectors, Limitless on CBS, and Billions on Showtime.

It’s no joke to say that our world would be a lot less funny without Budd Friedman!

In 1963, thirty-year-old Friedman—who had recently quit his job as a Boston advertising executive and returned to his hometown of New York to become a theatrical producer—opened a coffee house for Broadway performers called the Improvisation. His goal? Simply to make a living, and if all went according to plan, to also make enough professional contacts to be able to mount his first Broadway show within a year’s time.

Later shortened to the Improv, its first West 44th Street location in a seedy section of Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen had previously been a Vietnamese restaurant. Initially attracting the likes of Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Albert Finney, Christopher Plummer and Jason Robards, as well as a couple of then-unknowns named Dustin Hoffman and Bette Midler, Friedman’s new venture was an instant hit.

But while it drew near capacity crowds almost from day one, it wasn’t until comedians began dropping by to try out new material that the Improv truly hit its stride, not only becoming the first venue ever to present live stand-up in a continuous format, but in the process reinventing the art form and creating the template for all other comedy clubs that followed.

Now, in The Improv, Friedman, along with a Who’s Who of his most famous alumni—including Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Fallon, Bill Maher, Richard Lewis, Robert Klein, Larry David, Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin, Judd Apatow, Al Franken, Paul Reiser, Howie Mandel, Bob Saget, Dick Cavett, Paul Provenza, Drew Carey and many more—tell it like it was in the first-ever oral history of how this game-changing comedy club came to be.

From the microphone to the iconic brick wall, the Improv has been the launching pad for practically every major name in American comedy over the last five-plus decades since, also placing Friedman side by side with other men who transformed entire industries. Today, at the age of 85, he is still comedy’s master imprimatur, and his fabled club endures as one of the most important incubators for live stand-up anywhere—even though its original New York location is long gone.

The Improv gives readers an exclusive look at what really happened on stage and off-mike at one of America’s most venerable institutions. From the revelry and the rivalry to the smash hits, near misses, love affairs, chemical experimentation, exhilarating rises, tragic downfalls and just plain fun, it’s all here—emceed by the man who unofficially provided the laugh track for an entire nation, despite inevitable power struggles, personal and professional disappointments, and ever-changing times.

BARRY CRIMMINS who is to comedy what General Robert E. Lee is to surrendering joins us from Scotland. Comedy Giants RAJ DESAI, JIM EARL, & JON ROSS, plus author of "Snooze: The Lost Art of Sleep" MICHAEL MCGIRR and Film Critic MICHAEL SNYDER. On today's show Comedian Barry Crimmins worries Americans have forgotten what we should be ashamed of. He joins us from Scotland to remind us how disgraceful we are as both a nation and a people. Jim Earl worries that Barry Crimmins has left out a few things that Americans should be ashamed of. He joins us from Los Angeles to remind us how disgraceful we are as both a nation and a people. Comedy Writer Raj Desai doesn't remind us of how disgraceful we are as both a nation and a people. But he does remind us of how disgraceful David Feldman is as both a comedy writer and a person. Comedy Writer Jon Ross has a farm, so he's happy and yet he's funnier than ever so screw him. We go to Australia and talk with Author Michael McGirr about sleep, and why Americans would be better off if we just stopped for awhile. Film Critic Michael Snyder talks Dunkirk.

In Snooze, Michael McGirr delves into the mysterious world of sleep, including its many benefits, its stubborn elusiveness, and exactly what our brains really get up to while we’re in bed. He offers readers a tour through the odd sleep patterns of some of history's greatest minds, including Aristotle, Homer, Shakespeare, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Edison, and more. He looks, too, at the demise of sleep in our increasingly fragmented modern world―and examines what that means for everyone from the Average Joe in the workplace to those with serious sleep disorders.

Here's what they're saying about Barry Crimmins: 

"Barry is hilariously funny, but more important, his humor comes out of a deep intelligence, and extraordinary understanding of the world around him and an intense commitment to social change." -- Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States.

"He breaks down reality in a hilarious way. He seems ticked off at everything, and when you hear him, you agree. One of the few political comedians who are really good." -- Steven Wright in U.S. News and World Report

"The finest political satirist in the nation. A prolific writer of comedy who is both keenly insightful and superbly humorous." -- Swift Kicks

"Barry makes Jack Reed look like Michael Milken." -- Dennis Miller

"Barry Crimmins uses his sharp sense of irony as a political weapon. In his hands, the subversive joke is the first small act of resistance." -- Billy Bragg

"Crimmins did more...to educate these folks about the arms race and other issues than hours of speeches and editorials could have done." -- Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility

"A hallmark of Crimmins' shows are their unpredictability. He's known to go off on an unscripted monologue like a musician riffing in a jam session, an act of inspired spontaneity few comedians attempt." -- Mark Sommer Albany Times-Union

Raj Desai has written for The 2017 White House Correspondents' Dinner, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog's Hulu series for which he received a 2017 Writers Guild Award and a 2016 Primetime Emmy nomination. He's been on late night TV and Comedy Central doing stand-up. Raj has also written for Comedy Central, The New Yorker, and McSweeney's. He also played Reba on the hit show "Reba."

Jim Earl is a Peabody and Emmy Award winning comedy writer.

Jon Ross is a genius.

He also co-hosts the podcast Punch Drunk Sports with Jayson Thibault and Sam Tripoli, and is a regular guest on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

A seasoned veteran of comedy clubs and late night television, Jimmy Pardo has appeared on such shows as “The Tonight Show”, "Conan", "The Late Late Show" and his own half hour special on Comedy Central. 

Utilizing his trademark crowd work skills, Jimmy spent the last 6 years as Conan O'Brien's opening act at "Conan" tapings. Jimmy has also appeared on "Conan" as a panel guest, a field correspondent and recently filled in as co-host. He also conducts the unconventional celebrity backstage interviews for Teamcoco.com's "The Pardo Patrol."

In 2006, Jimmy Pardo became a podcasting pioneer when he began hosting the raucous-but-smart weekly podcast "Never Not Funny", which Entertainment Weekly called "one of the sharpest and gut-bustingest shows on the Internet." The show has been named a top comedy podcast by The AV Club, Esquire, GQ and USA Today, and its guest list (Conan O’Brien, Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, Tom Bergeron, Zach Galifianakis and Sarah Silverman, just to name a few) reads like a Who’s Who of Hollywood. Never Not Funny also hosts the annual Pardcast-a-Thon fundraiser, a 12-hour marathon webcast to benefit Smile Train.

Other publications include articles on capital punishment and the role of rights in Marxian thought.

Brettschneider is the recipient of the Cornell University Young Scholar Award, a fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies, and a Safra Foundation Fellowship in Ethics from Harvard University. He is currently developing a project that suggests why political liberalism should incorporate the concerns of feminist theory. The first article of this project is "The Politics of the Personal: A Liberal Approach," in the American Political Science Review (2007). 

 

In 1982, after founding “Governor’s Comedy Shop” in Levittown on Long Island and touring as a national headliner, on a suggestion from a Washington DC comedy club owner, Jackie Martling blindly sent his three LP’s to Howard Stern upon Howard’s arrival at WNBC-AM in New York City. Howard called him to make a guest appearance on his radio show. In 1986, Jackie became a full-time cast member and the head writer of Stern’s show, and as they say, the rest is history.

Donald Trump’s new Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci told the New Yorker that Steve Bannon has been trying to suck his own cock, but only because Sean Spicer is no longer showing up for work. Comedian DAVE SIRUS on The Mooch, Skinny Repeal and how the GOP basically just wants to murder us. Also Reince Preibus has been fired for failing to orchestrate a repeal of Obamacare. Let's hope he develops a chronic health condition just as his COBRA insurance starts running out. Hard to believe the least messed up thing about Reince Preibus was his name. Meanwhile Senator John McCain was the deciding vote in defeating Skinny Repeal. Perhaps McCain will decide to serve his country once again with valor by deciding to caucus with the Democrats. You know John, the GOP isn't the Hanoi Hilton. You can leave anytime you want. ZACK FORD covers LGBTQ issues for Think Progress. He joins us from Washington DC to discuss Donald Trump’s recent tweet prohibiting transgender people from serving in our armed forces. Considering Trump's morbid obesity, perhaps he should instead consider banning trans fats. Comic JOE DEVITO is also one of our most requested guests, he returns from San Antonio with some choice words about the Alamo, and Americans in general. Our most hated guest Comedian PAT DIXON from the New York City Crime Report returns. You’ve hated him on Comedy Central and VH1 and you get to hate him some more on our show. And Comedian, Actor and Comedy Writer DAVID TAYLOR is back to talk about Disneyland and what it’s like to be a horrible human being and why it takes practice.

 

Civil Asset Forfeiture allows police departments and DEA agents to seize cash, homes and cars if they suspect the property belongs to a drug dealer. Under Obama the feds curtailed the practice, but now Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he is bringing civil asset forfeiture back. LEAP stands for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. It’s an organization of police officers, judges and retired DEA officials who want to end America’s failed war against drugs. Detective RUSSELL JONES is one of LEAP’s leading spokesmen. He joins talks to us about civil asset forfeiture. Detective Jones is the author of “Honorable Intentions," which chronicles his 40-year involvement in the War on Drugs. As a government intelligence agent, Jones worked in Latin America observing narcotics trafficking during the Nicaragua-Contra conflict. You’re going to want to hear my conversation with him. He sheds light on how exactly crack cocaine ended up in our inner cities, and who’s to blame.
