In this edition of the weekly roundtable, David Feldman invites on one of his co-workers from the Jack and Triumph Show, Editor of TV Comedies Steven Rosenthal. David looks to peel away more layers of the onion that is Mr. Rosenthal by picking his brain to find out how he became this comedy jack of all trades. Also joining David are returning champions Eddie Brill and Liam McEneaney. The discussion runs the gamut, covering topics such as the value of editing in comedy, the Dennis Hastert & FIFA scandals, summer blockbusters and holocaust documentaries.
On the heels of Letterman's final episode, former Late Show warm-up and stand-up booker, Eddie Brill, sits down with David, alongside regulars Liam McEneaney and Kevin Bartini, where he lets David ask him one time, and just this one time, about Letterman's legacy. The gang also chats about the pros and cons of mean-spirited comedy, the militarization of the police force, and their first forays into manhood. You won't want to miss this one!
