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.

JACKIE "THE JOKE MAN" MARTLING and Constitutional Law Professor COREY BRETTSCHNEIDER.

Ari Shaffir is the producer and host of his podcast, Skeptic Tank, and the stand up comedy web and television series This Is Not Happening on Comedy Central. 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. To date, the Pardcast-a-Thons have raised over half a million dollars for the charity.

Over the years Jimmy has also been seen on such shows as "Comedy Bang Bang", "@Midnight", "Maron" and "Monk". He hosted “National Lampoon's Funny Money" for Game Show Network, four seasons of AMC's "Movies at Our House," and episodes of NBC's "Late Friday", VH1's "The Surreal Life" and "The Playboy Morning Show".

Jimmy has recorded three comedy albums: "Uno," "Pompous Clown" and 2013's "Sprezzatura," which Entertainment Weekly named one of the 5 Best Stand-Up Albums of the year.

Corey Brettschneider is Professor of Political Science and Public Policy at Brown University, where he teaches courses in political theory and public law. He received a PhD in Politics from Princeton University and a JD from Stanford University. His recent articles, part of a book project entitled, Democratic Rights: The Substance of Self-Government, (Princeton University Press, 2007), include "Balancing Procedures and Outcomes Within Democratic Theory: Core Values and Judicial Review," in Political Studies (2005), "The Value Theory of Democracy," in Politics, Philosophy and Economics (2006), and "The Rights of the Guilty," in Political Theory (2007). 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. Remarkable radio as well as show business history.

Jackie left the Stern show in 2001 after a fifteen-year run as head writer of the radio show, four television series, and three Pay-Per-Views. He’s released six dirty joke CD’s … “The Joke Man,” “Sgt. Pecker,” “Hot Dogs & Donuts,” Come Again?!,” F. jackie,” and “snart,” as well as three videos, five joke books and countless joke gadgets of all kinds, for children as well as adults.

He Tweets a joke every day at 4:20pm … you can follow him on Twitter, @jackiemartling …

In 2006 he released a CD of his original music entitled “Happy Endings,” that he co-produced with guitar legend Frank Vignola.
From 2007-2014, Jackie wrote and performed his own radio show on SiriusXM Satellite Radio, “Jackie’s Joke Hunt,” and he wrote the joke page for Penthouse magazine for 17 years.

Jackie is featured in the red-hot comedy documentary, “The Aristocrats,” over a dozen other independent films, and has appeared on many television shows.

He still works all around the country performing his solo act of rapid-fire filthy jokes and the classic finale, “Stump The Joke Man.” and guests on many of the top national radio shows and podcasts.

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.

Howie Klein, Professor Corey Brettschneider and Dr. Jay Sutay.

Marc Maron stars in the new critically acclaimed Netflix series "Glow." Randy "Iron Stache" Bryce is running for Wisconsin's first congressional district intent on defeating Speaker Paul Ryan. Howie Klein on Randy Bryce and the fight for Medicare For All. Professor Corey Brettschneider explains how Donald Trump Junior violated campaign finance law by taking that meeting last year with those Russians.

Marc is the author of two books: The Jerusalem Syndrome: My Life as a Reluctant Messiah, based on his solo show and is available for purchase on Amazon.com, and a collection of essays titled Attempting Normal, which was released by Spiegel and Grau in 2013.

His first four albums, Not Sold Out, Tickets Still Available, Final Engagement, and This Has To Be Funny are comedy classics. Marc released his stand-up special Thinky Pain on Netflixin 2013 and as an album in 2014.  His most recent special, More Later, premiered on Epix in December 2015 and is also available on Hulu and Amazon Prime.

Randy Bryce is a U.S. Army veteran, cancer survivor, and union ironworker. He joined the race for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District because his values are our neighbors’ values, and Washington has gotten way off track.

Randy was raised in southeastern Wisconsin, and went to public schools. After graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, and was posted to Honduras, where he earned the Army Achievement Medal. Randy’s father was a police officer, and his mother worked in a doctor’s office. His brother is also a police officer, and his sister is a public school teacher.

After returning stateside, Randy was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He didn’t believe he could ever have children, and now calls his only son Ben, his “miracle child.” Ben is a public school student like his dad was.

Randy found his way to an apprenticeship as an iron worker, and has now been helping to build America for more than 20 years. He’s been active in Ironworkers Local 8, serving as political coordinator for the union, and until recently as a member of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council board of directors.

“My mother has multiple sclerosis, my father is in assisted living, and I survived cancer in my 20s to have a miracle child in my 40s,” said Bryce. “What Paul Ryan and the Republicans are doing to take health care away from millions of us, to make it cost more and cover less, and to allow the protections we’ve gained to be stripped away – it’s just unacceptable.”

Randy currently serves as President of the Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce board of directors, and as Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin Veterans Caucus. He resides in Caledonia.

Howie Klein is an American writer, concert promoter, disc jockey, music producer, record label founder, record label executive, progressive political activist, and adjunct professor of music. He is perhaps best known for his role as President of Reprise Records from 1989 to 2001. He appears occasionally as himself in music-related film documentaries and has received accolades for his stance against censorship and for his advocacy of free speech protection.

Corey Brettschneider is professor of political science at Brown University, where he teaches courses in constitutional law and political theory. He is currently also a visiting professor at the University of Chicago Law School. Brettschneider was a visiting professor at Fordham Law School, a Rockefeller faculty fellow at the Princeton University Center for Human Values, a visiting associate professor at Harvard Law School, and a faculty fellow at Harvard's Safra Center for Ethics. Brettschneider received a PhD in politics from Princeton University and a JD from Stanford University. He is the author of When the State Speaks, What Should it Say? How Democracies Can Protect Expression and Promote Equality (Princeton University Press, 2012) and Democratic Rights: The Substance of Self-Government (Princeton University Press, 2007). These books have been the subject of several journal symposia, including one most recently published in the Brooklyn Law Review. Brettschneider is also the author of a casebook, Constitutional Law and American Democracy: Cases and Readings (Aspen Publishers/Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, 2011). His articles include "Sovereign and State: A Democratic Theory of Sovereign Immunity," forthcoming in Texas Law Review; "Value Democracy as the Basis for Viewpoint Neutrality," in Northwestern Law Review (2013); "A Transformative Theory of Religious Freedom," in Political Theory (2010); "When the State Speaks, What Should it Say? Democratic Persuasion and the Freedom of Expression," in Perspectives on Politics (2010); and "The Politics of the Personal: A Liberal Approach," in the American Political Science Review (2007).

Dr. Jay Sutay, the self-proclaimed “Hardest Working Pediatrician in Comedy”, is a frustrated pediatrician from South Windsor, CT, who brings his tales from the exam rooms, his experience working with kids and their parents, as well as his own tribulations as the father of two daughters to his stand up comedy. His cutting and sometimes incisive commentary about society, parenting and raising kids, has left audiences laughing.

 

Dr. Jay Sutay began doing stand up comedy in 1983 while attending Fairfield University. He was a regular at Open Mic Night at the Treehouse Comedy Club when it was still located in the basement of the New England Motor Lodge in Westport. While in college, Jay had narrowed his career choices to two. Medicine or Stand up Comedy. A chance encounter with comedian, Jay Leno, on October 31, 1983 sealed Jay’s career path. Leno’s advice was to go to medical school and become a doctor. Insisting that after medical training, at the very least, Jay would have a job. Sage advice. Comedy offers no guarantees.

 

After graduating from F.U. in 1985, Jay took a year off to mull over his options. Realizing that pizza making by day, and stand up comedy by night was probably not the best use of his college education, medical school seemed the likely option. Jay completed his medical school training at The University of Connecticut School of Medicine, and delivered the valedictory address at his graduation in 1990 (clearly selected as the speaker not because he was the top student in the class, but because he was the funniest). After completing his residency in Pediatrics at Hartford Hospital, he has been in private pediatrics practice in South Windsor, CT since 1993. He has been named a Connecticut Top Doc by Connecticut Magazine each year since 2006. Dr. Sutay is Board certified in Pediatrics, but has no documentation that he is a comic, or for that matter, funny.

 

After 20 years away from comedy, Dr. Sutay resurrected his long dormant stand up act in December 2006 by taking the stage at Hartford’s Brew Ha Ha Comedy Club.

Congressman Alan Grayson, Comic Joe DeVito, Professor Corey Brettschneider and Buckels The Clown.

Lizz Winstead created The Daily Show and Air America as well as Lady Parts Justice. Says Lizz, "Lady Parts Justice is the first not safe for work, rapid response reproductive rights messaging hub that uses comedy, culture and digital media to sound an alarm about the terrifying erosion of reproductive access so people will get off their asses and reclaim their rights." Lizz adds, "The name 'Lady Parts Justice' came from an incident involving a former Michigan state representative and a tireless advocate for abortion rights named Lisa Brown. In 2012, at the same time we were developing our organization, Lisa was fighting against dozens of horrible regressive anti abortion bills in Lansing. In one contentious battle, The Speaker of the House banned Lisa from the statehouse floor for using the word vagina when arguing against a transvaginal ultrasound bill- a bill that would have forced pregnant people to undergo a state mandated transvaginal probe before they could have an abortion. When she asked what she SHOULD use instead of vagina, the Speaker of the House suggested something less offensive like “lady parts.”  The actual offense – a politician who was offended by the word vagina yet felt an absolute entitlement to legislate it – inspired us to take Lisa Brown’s fight and expose this kind of hypocrisy by choosing Lady Parts Justice as our name."

Frank Conniff's new books are "Twenty Five Mystery Science Theater 3000 Films That Changed My Life In No Way Whatsoever" and "Cats V. Conniff: A Chronicle of the Historic Lawsuit Brought Against Frank Conniff by His Cats, Millie and Barney."

Congressman Alan Grayson was the United States Representative for Florida's 9th congressional district. He is also a national treasure.

Joe DeVito's TV appearances include The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, and a semi-finalist turn on season five of NBC's Last Comic Standing. His savage wit has also made him an in-demand panelist on shows like Chelsea Lately, CNN's Headline News, Animal Planet's Wild 100, and a regular guest on FOX News Channel's Red Eye. As a writer, Joe has contributed to Maxim Magazine, MTV, and the award-winning film Super Size Me.

Corey Brettschneider is professor of political science at Brown University, where he teaches courses in constitutional law and political theory. He is currently also a visiting professor at the University of Chicago Law School. Brettschneider was a visiting professor at Fordham Law School, a Rockefeller faculty fellow at the Princeton University Center for Human Values, a visiting associate professor at Harvard Law School, and a faculty fellow at Harvard's Safra Center for Ethics. Brettschneider received a PhD in politics from Princeton University and a JD from Stanford University. He is the author of When the State Speaks, What Should it Say? How Democracies Can Protect Expression and Promote Equality (Princeton University Press, 2012) and Democratic Rights: The Substance of Self-Government (Princeton University Press, 2007). These books have been the subject of several journal symposia, including one most recently published in the Brooklyn Law Review. Brettschneider is also the author of a casebook, Constitutional Law and American Democracy: Cases and Readings (Aspen Publishers/Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, 2011). His articles include "Sovereign and State: A Democratic Theory of Sovereign Immunity," forthcoming in Texas Law Review; "Value Democracy as the Basis for Viewpoint Neutrality," in Northwestern Law Review (2013); "A Transformative Theory of Religious Freedom," in Political Theory (2010); "When the State Speaks, What Should it Say? Democratic Persuasion and the Freedom of Expression," in Perspectives on Politics (2010); and "The Politics of the Personal: A Liberal Approach," in the American Political Science Review (2007).

Greg Proops talks about the last abortion clinic in Mississippi and why we all need to give to Planned Parenthood. Plus the author of "Last Man Standing: Mort Sahl and the Birth of Modern Comedy" James Curtis, Journalist Emil Guillermo, and Comic Scott Rogowsky.

Greg Proops' Proopcast is called "The Smartest Man in The World." This week's episode is a stunner. Greg travels to Jackson, Mississippi to shine the light on how difficult it is to get an abortion in Republican held states. The name of his episode is "The Last Clinic in Mississippi" and it is a monumental work of journalism.

Annie Lederman has appeared on Girl Code, This is Not Happening, Chelsea Lately and @Midnight.

James Curtis is the author of "W.C. Fields: A Biography", which was awarded the Special Jury Prize by the Theatre Library Association and named one of the Notable Books of the Year by the New York Times. He is also the author of "William Cameron Menzies: The Shape of Films to Come," "Spencer Tracy: A Biography," "James Whale: A New World of Gods and Monsters," and "Between Flops," an acclaimed biography of writer-director Preston Sturges. His new book "Last Man Standing: Mort Sahl and the Birth of Modern Comedy." Here's how it's described by the author:

"On December 22, 1953, Mort Sahl took the stage at San Francisco’s hungry i and changed comedy forever. Before him, standup was about everything but hard news and politics. In his wake, a new generation of smart comics emerged―Shelley Berman, Mike Nichols and Elaine May, Lenny Bruce, Bob Newhart, Dick Gregory, Woody Allen, and the Smothers Brothers, among others. He opened up jazz-inflected satire to a loose network of clubs, cut the first modern comedy album, and appeared on the cover of Time surrounded by caricatures of some of his frequent targets such as Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Adlai Stevenson, and John F. Kennedy. Through the extraordinary details of Sahl’s life, author James Curtis deftly illustrates why Sahl was dubbed by Steve Allen as “the only real political philosopher we have in modern comedy.”

Sahl came on the scene the same year Eisenhower and Nixon entered the White House, the year Playboy first hit the nation’s newsstands. Clad in an open collar and pullover sweater, he adopted the persona of a graduate student ruminating on current events. “It was like nothing I’d ever seen,” said Woody Allen, “and I’ve never seen anything like it after.” Sahl was billed, variously, as the Nation’s Conscience, America’s Only Working Philosopher, and, most tellingly, the Next President of the United States. Yet he was also a satirist so savage the editors of Time once dubbed him “Will Rogers with fangs.”

Here, for the first time, is the whole story of Mort Sahl, America’s iconoclastic father of modern standup comedy. Written with Sahl’s full cooperation and the participation of many of his friends and contemporaries, it delves deeply into the influences that shaped him, the heady times in which he soared, and the depths to which he fell during the turbulent sixties when he took on the Warren Commission and nearly paid for it with his career."

Emil Guillermo is an American print and broadcast journalist, commentator and humorist. His column, "Emil Amok", appeared for more than 14 years in AsianWeek—at one time, the most widely read and largest circulating Asian American newsweekly in the U.S. The column has now migrated to the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund site blog. 

From 1989-1991, he was host of NPR's "All Things Considered." He was the first Asian American male, and first Filipino American, to host a regularly scheduled national news broadcast. He has also worked as a television reporter in San Francisco, Dallas, and Washington, D.C. He has hosted his own radio talk show in Washington D.C., San Francisco and Sacramento. His writing and commentary has been widely published in newspapers around the country, and has earned him national and regional journalism awards. In 2015, Guillermo received the Asian American Journalists Association's Dr. Suzanne Ahn Award for Civil Rights & Social Justice, in recognition of excellence in coverage of Asian American Pacific Islander civil rights and social justice issues. Guillermo is the author of Amok: Essays from an Asian American Perspective—a compilation of essays originally published in Asian Week—that won an American Book Award in 2000. Born in San Francisco, Guillermo is an alumnus of Harvard University, where he studied history and film, and was a member of the Harvard Lampoon. He delivered the Ivy Oration as class humorist in 1977.

Scott Rogowsky is the host of Running Late.

Congressman Alan Grayson, Adorable Laura House, World Politics Review's Editor-in-Chief Judah Grunstein, and Film Critic Michael Snyder. 

Susie and David discuss how David came up with a Curb storyline, being approached by annoying Curb fans, Susie Green’s  understanding of men, whether the fighting between Susie and Jeff is sensual, growing up around secure, alpha females, dealing drugs, the monotony of acting classes, relationships with their mothers, turning to comedy as an act of desperation, improv versus stand-up, taking kids to see your stand-up, bombing, Broadway audiences, meeting your idols, Paul Dooley, their parents’ sex life, can a women be with a man after he cheats?, why it took a while to get married, Beverly Hills couples making arrangements for what they both need in a relationship, the myth of Larry David being a lousy stand-up, Caroline's Comedy Hour, being a performer versus a writer, growing up in a theatrical family, the mental health that comes from reading, Joy Behar ruining David’s marriage, growing up without religion, falling off the vegetarian wagon, her dog with one eye, programming Turner Classic Movies, and refusing to play along with Jeff Garlin.

Congressman Alan Grayson says the single biggest threat to American security is the Republican health care plan that will end up killing tens of millions of Americans to pay for a tax cut for billionaires.

Judah Grunstein the editor chief of World Politics Review, reports from Paris on France's new President and what that means for both the French safety net and stability inEurope. Judah also explains the situation in Qatar and why it's a  flashpoint Americans must pay attention to. Judah also attempts to disabuse David of the notion that life is better in France than here in America. 

Film Critic Michael Snyder reviews "The Mummy," "Megan Leavey," "My Cousin Rachel,"  "The Hero," "The Hunter's Prayer," and "Last Men In Aleppo." He says no to Cruise in The Mummy. "Megan Leavey is very well told," say Snyder.

Comics Azhar Usman & Bruce Smirnoff and Constitutional Law Professor Corey Brettschneider. On today's show: Comey versus Trump comes down to "He Says, Rapist Says." 

We have in depth analysis of the Comey testimony with our resident constitutional scholar the brilliant Professor Corey Brettschneider author of "When The State Speaks."

LONG BIO

Described as “Americaʼs Funniest Muslim” by CNN, AZHAR USMAN is among the “500 Most Influential Muslims in the World,” according to Georgetown University. Standup comedy icon Dave Chappelle–for whom Azhar has opened over 50 times–commented in 2010: “Azhar Usman is untouchable! He's like a comedian from the future.” Azhar has been profiled by over 100 major media outlets, including The New York Times, The Guardian, Sydney Morning Herald, The Times of India, DAWN (Pakistan), Al-Ahram (Egypt), Jawa Pos (Indonesia), and The Economist. In 2005, ABC’s Nightline dedicated an entire episode to exploring his life and comedy career. 

A former attorney, Azhar is a Chicago-based, professional standup comedian, performing at comedy clubs, theatres, festivals, campuses, conferences, conventions, and private events all over the globe. Since 2001, he has performed in over twenty countries, on five continents. He released his self-produced, underground comedy album “SQUARE THE CIRCLE” in 2003, which went on to gain a cult following among English-speaking Muslim communities worldwide. 

Azhar appeared in numerous documentaries (BBC, CBC, ABC, Al-Jazeera, PBS), starred in the award-winning, independent feature film “MOOZ-LUM” (starring Danny Glover and Nia Long, directed by Qasim Basir), and portrayed original sketch characters both on television (MTV, E4) and online (Tinkuʼs World).

As a versatile media professional, Azhar is as comfortable in front of the camera as he is behind it, serving as writer, producer, and talent on diverse creative projects throughout his career. He is an executive producer and co-founding principal of KALIJAGA MEDIA LLC, a newly formed independent production company focused on entertainment content production across all existing and emerging digital platforms. The Company’s first major production is “MO AMER: LEGALLY HOMELESS,” the first ever, one-hour standup special starring an Arab-American comedian (directed by Jay Chapman). In the Spring of 2017, he appeared on Pete Holmes' popular podcast "You Made It Weird," where he announced that he will record his first ever one-hour standup special later this year (to be directed by Ramy Youssef and executive produced by Hannibal Buress).

Watch Laurie on CONAN this week. David worries that with all this talk about Bill Maher and Kathy Griffin people will forget that Chuck Woolery is an anti-Semite. Howie Klein on the increasingly violent GOP. Mark Thompson on the exponential speed of Climate Change. Jim Earl blames Hillary, Obama and America for America. Michael Snyder on Wonder Woman. Andrew Goldstein talks about his dog Dusty. And Comedy Writer and Comedian Laurie Kilmartin on writing jokes and raising a child with Trump in the Oval Office.

Laurie is an Emmy-nominated writer for CONAN on TBS, and, as a stand-up comedian, has appeared on CONAN, Last Comic Standing, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Comedy Central.  Her book, Shitty Mom, was a NY Times bestseller.

Kathy Griffin needs to apologize for apologizing. Donald Trump said he was pulling out of the Paris Climate accords because "the treaty is bad for the economy." Know what else is bad for the economy? The polar ice caps melting, you brain dead Homunculus.

Today we talk Trump, the mortal threat to our planet, with Comic Tamer Kattan, David's hero Burt Ross, Constitutional Law Professor Corey Brettschneider and Comic Tom McCaffrey.

Tamer began his comedy career in Los Angeles and New York, but very quickly began to tour internationally. His over-seas experiences include tours for the troops in Afghanistan, performing at the American University in Cairo (during the Egyptian revolution) and the Edinburgh fringe in Scotland, where he received three 4 star reviews from international press. Towards the end of 2013, he moved to London for 1 year (following the path of his two biggest comedic influences, Patrice O’Neal and Bill Hicks). Tamer was most recently featured on Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity event with Todd Glass and Hannibal Buress, won the 2015 World Series of Comedy and has TV & Radio credits on BBC and SkyTV in the UK as well as in the U.S. on Fox, HULU, HGTV & truTV.

Burt Ross is the second greatest living American right after Ralph Nader.
 
Professor Corey Brettschneider is the author of When The State Speaks.
 
Comic Tom McCaffrey was born and raised in Manhattan. He started doing stand-up comedy in 1999 in Los Angeles and moved back to New York in 2002. His credits include; multiple episodes of Vh1's Best Week Ever, Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Comedy Central's Secret Stash Movie, Comedy Central Records' Invite Them Up CD, Discovery Channel's The A-List. He released a full length Comedy CD called 'Lou Diamond Phillips?' on the indie label TALTL Records. It was chosen by Punchline Magazine as one of the 'Top 10 Comedy CD's of 2008'. He has contributed to the Onion News Network and is featured in the book 'Rejected' published by Random House, edited by Jon Friedman. He also has the lead role in the indie comedy film 'Happy Life' executive produced by Abel Ferrara, director of 'Bad Lieutenant'.

The leader of the free world calls women "fat pigs," "dogs," "slobs," and "disgusting animals." Over the next four years what hope do women have for their "whatevers?" Especially the millions of female refugees lacking toilets, running water and basic sanitation. Dr. Marni Sommer writes about menstruation issues confronting refugees and she joins us from Tanzania. Also Howie Klein from Down with Tyranny. Michael Snyder tells us what movies to catch. Comic Jon Ross remembers why he and David stopped talking for several years. Comic Laura House is in love. And the host of Succotash Marc Hershon does everything and knows even more.

Good news for the White House, Trump’s new healthcare plan now includes immunity from prosecution. Howie Klein from Down with Tyranny peels back the curtain on what’s in store for the GOP when it comes to impeachment, getting rid of Obamacare and denying African Americans the right to vote. Sunday was Menstrual Hygiene Day around the world. Millions of girls and women especially refugees lack the hygiene and facilities to attend to their fertility issues. I read about this in an article posted at The Conversation. It was written by Dr. Marni Sommer from Columbia University who joins us today from Tanzania where she is working inside two refugee camps. Then we lighten the mood talking with my old and dear friend Jon Ross. Jon’s a comedian, a comedy writer and provides a follow up to last week’s conversations with Jake Johannsen and Fred Stoller about the early days of the San Francisco comedy scene. Marc Hershon hosts Succotash, writes for the Huffington Post and Splitsider and has written several screenplays for the Hallmark Channel. He joins us from Sausalito to discuss which podcasts we should be downloading, and then recalls the early days of San Francisco’s standup explosion. Plus, she’s back! House is in the Laura! Laura House is in love and on our show.
