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.

Curb Your Enthusiasm's Susie Essman, 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.

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.

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). In character as "Vijay the VJ," he served as a veejay for MTV Desi in 2005, interviewing such mega-celebrities as Snoop Dogg, Shakira, Hulk Hogan, Pitbull, Carmen Electra, and several others, at the MTV Video Music Awards. He served as a producer on critically acclaimed short films, including “THE BOUNDARY” (starring Alexander Siddig, directed by Julius Onah–sold to HBO); co-wrote and produced the standup comedy concert film “ALLAH MADE ME FUNNY: LIVE IN CONCERT” (directed by Andrea Kalin–limited 2008 theatrical release in the United States); recorded an appearance in "Triumph's Election Special 2016" for Hulu (produced by Funny or Die; executive produced by Conan O'Brien and Robert Smigel); served as creative consultant on Hannibal Buress' 2016 Netflix special "Comedy Camisado"; appeared in Bassem Youssef's 2016 comedy series "Democracy Handbook" on Fusion's new digital platform, F-Comedy; and can be seen playing a recurring role in Amazon Studios' big-budget original series PATRIOT (created, written, and directed by Steve Conrad) in 2017.

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.

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.

Donald Trump leaks classified information to the Russians. Howie Klein from Down with Tyranny fills us in. How corrupt is Congress? On Monday, Politico released the results of its three-month study of senators and house members who continue to play the stock market, trading on what some might call inside information despite passage of a law five years ago specifically banning such activity. We talk with the author of that study Politico’s Maggie Severns. The reason radio and television stink is because the justice department wont enforce antitrust legislation and so television and radio remains in the rapacious hands of just a few corporations who care more about money than they do our democracy. Trump’s FCC is expected to allow media conglomerates to just get bigger, case in point-- the conservative television group Sinclair broadcasting announced plans to buy Tribune’s television stations. David Dayen from The Nation and The Intercept joins us to talk about why the growth of large media giants is good for republicans but bad for what’s left of America’s critical thinking. Graham Ellwood is a hysterical comedian who hosts Comedy Film Nerds. His new documentary about podcasting has just been released. It’s called Ear Buds: The Podcasting Documentary. And then we discuss parenting, and mating with animal behaviorist Dr. Jennifer Verdolin whose new book Raised by Animals is just out this month. We talk about that and her previous book Wild Connection: What Animal Courtship and Mating Tell Us About Human Relationships which tackles the wild world of romance. Here’s a hint, if you want to attract a mate, don’t use so much perfume and stop showering. Also we learn that the birth control pill may be leading women into picking the wrong mate.

Trump's guilty of a cover-up far more blatant than those lion pubic hairs stapled to the top of his skull. Comics Andy Kindler and Bruce Smirnoff along with National Security Reporter for The Intercept Mattathias Schwartz, Constitutional Law Professor Corey Brettschneider and Movie Critic Michael Snyder. Plus From The Vault: Robert Smigel is Donald Trump.

Andy Kindler regularly voices the character of Mort, a mortician and the Belchers' neighbor, on Bob's Burgers. He also stars on IFC's Maron. His State of The Industry addresses make history at Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival and are now available for download on iTunes. Kindler is considered one of the funniest comic minds and the most daring, unafraid to attack comics, producers, agents and everybody else who can further his career. He is one of Alex Brizel's all time favorite comics which makes David jealous.

Mattathias Schwartz is a national security reporter for The Intercept. He has served as a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine, a staff writer at The New Yorker, and is currently a term member at the Council on Foreign Relations. In the past, he has contributed to the print editions of the Wall Street JournalWiredBloomberg BusinessWeekMIT Technology ReviewHarper’s, and the London Review of Books, among other publications. He founded and funded the Philadelphia Independent, a broadsheet newspaper, and served as editor and publisher for its 21-issue run. “A Massacre in Jamaica,” Schwartz’s investigation into the extradition of Christopher “Dudus” Coke, for The New Yorker, won the Livingston Award for International Reporting. “A Mission Gone Wrong,” an investigation of the killing of four Honduran civilians during a DEA-led drug interdiction, was later nominated for the same award. Schwartz also wrote “The Whole Haystack,” which examines the government’s collection of domestic phone metadata under the controversial Section 215 program.

Bruce Smirnoff's show business career began at the age of 13, when he tried to attempt an acrobatic stunt he witnessed on the Ed Sullivan Show. The next day, from his hospital room in ICU, Bruce chose the guitar as his next foray into the performance world, convinced this would net him the attention from the females he so desired at school! Armed with no real ability, a low IQ, and no interest, whatsoever, from females, Bruce soon found something he was good at, STAND-UP COMEDY.

At Boston University in the late 70's, Bruce became famous ushering in the tremendous comedy boom that swept Boston, which included people like homegrown Jay Leno. Bruce wound up in L.A. in '78, where he spent the next twenty-two years, leading to dozens and dozens of national TV appearances and his 1998 critically acclaimed, award winning One-Man Show, "Other Than My Health, I Have Nothing.And Today, I Don't Feel So Good!" The show ran two years in L.A., then made stops in Toronto, New York, Cleveland and Kansas City.

Currently residing in Florida, Bruce headlines in top comedy clubs and gated communities throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia, where his topical humor and quick wit have won audiences everywhere. He has opened for stars like Julio Iglesias, the Righteous Brothers, Gregory Hines, and Andrew Dice Clay.

Corey Brettschneider, Professor of Political Science at Brown University, teaches courses in political theory and public law. He is also Professor, by courtesy, of Philosophy. He holds a Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University and a J.D. from Stanford Law School.

Professor Brettschneider works at the intersection of constitutional law and democratic theory. He also has been a visiting professor at law schools, including The University of Chicago, Fordham and Harvard.

Jeremiah Tower & Azhar Usman. David goes insane demanding to know why Ann Coulter won't go away?

Three of the biggest names ever to come out of my hometown, San Francisco: Comedian Christopher Titus, Comedian Mark Pita, and, this is huge, Chef Jeremiah Tower, plus my new friend, one of Dave Chappelle’s favorite opening acts, and he’s writing for tomorrow night’s White House Correspondents Dinner, Comedian, Lawyer, Husband, Father, Son and Holy Ghost Azhar Usman. Christopher Titus is working on his eighth comedy special. Mark Pita recalls the early days of San Francisco comedy scene, his first Carson shot, and what it's like to hang with your comedy heroes. Jeremiah Tower! If you know anything about food this is big, and if you don’t know anything about food you need to know who Jeremiah Tower is. It all starts with Jeremiah Tower. Before Mario Batali, before Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry, before Wolfgang Puck there was Jeremiah Tower who created the idea of a celebrity chef, he created not only California cuisine, he created American cuisine, he created farm to table he created the whole idea of being a locavore. He’s on the show today! Jeremiah Tower is responsible for Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California and Chez Panisse is responsible for the whole idea of locally sourced food. I know. It sounds crazy, but Jeremiah Tower in the late 70s and early 80s said, "To hell with French cooking, to hell with flying in fish from Chile, let’s cook with what’s right in front of us." You take that for granted, but until Jeremiah Tower nobody knew what fresh food tasted like. There’s a new documentary out called the Last magnificent, and it’s the story of how Jeremiah Tower didn’t just revolutionize modern dining, he created it. Martha Stewart, Mario Batali and Anthony Bourdaine are in this documentary, The Last Magnificent, it’s produced by Anthony Bourdaine, and the Last Magnificent is incredible, you’ll never look at food the same way again. So much of what we take for granted started with Jeremiah Tower in the early 80s, he went on to create Stars restaurant in San Francisco, and then, he disappeared. Fell of the face of the earth. Walked away from it all, left at the top of his game. Only to return two years ago to run Tavern on The Green in New York, as well as serve as the subject of this fantastic documentary The Last Magnificent. I would put this up there with Jiro Dreams of Sushi, that great 2011 documentary covering Jiro Ono the 85-year-old Japanese sushi master who runs a hole in the wall that Michelin gives three stars. So proud to have Jeremiah Tower on the show today. Christopher Titus has done seven comedy specials.  Never happy with doing what's been done before, Titus makes sure every show has a specific theme, while simultaneously taking the audience on a wild ride of laughter.  He is currently touring with his newest and eighth show, "AMERICA… REALLY?," in which he is half-assed running for President in 2017. After rave reviews of “Norman Rockwell is Bleeding,” Titus followed it up 2 years later with his rant on 9-11 and the world coming apart in “The 5th Annual End of the World Tour.” This 90-minute piece once again shows how Christopher is a comic who either suffers from A.D.D., or is an angry white trash maniac. After his second show, all hell broke loose in Titus’ life.  A bad divorce and an amazing new relationship brought his third 90-minute show to life. “Love is Evol" goes through the ups and downs of love and divorce in a way that no comic has before.  If you’ve ever been in love and had your heart ripped out, this show will heal you... and steel you for the future. Never holding back, Christopher Titus was able to do three ninety-minute shows in only five years.  Most comics would take a break and recharge, but instead, Titus dropped “NEVERLUTION” in 2011.  Neverlution takes on the entire country and its complacency with everything from terrorism and politics, to child-rearing and technology.  Titus again shows he is up to more than just stand-up comedy.Between 2004 and 2011, Titus released six hours of comedy.  Now what?  “VOICE IN MY HEAD” is what.  Titus turns his rage and hilarity inward, and kicks his own ass with this special about every mistake he has made in his life, including getting his TV show cancelled. The disc ends with an epic 28-minute piece about meeting Bruce Springsteen and what an idiot Titus continued to be in front of “The Boss." Only one year later, Titus released “Angry Pursuit of Happiness.”  One of his best specials, Titus takes the audience on a ride through life.  From the bit, “Arm the Children,” to His Dad’s ED problem, to one of his most epic pieces, “Here’s How Life Goes,” you will laugh your ass off while reconsidering your own life choices. In “BORN WITH A DEFECT,” Titus tackles one of his toughest subjects to date-- kids.  In an hour and forty minutes, Titus deconstructs the love of children and proves that they really don’t care about us at all. He also gives parenting advice and tells stories that would make a child therapist get a restraining order. As he says in the show, “If you are a parent this show is therapy, if you don’t have kids it’s 90 minutes of birth control.”   If you are counting, that’s seven specials in only 12 years. Titus has done the work, paid his dues and has the history to show that he is one of the best comics working today.  Not happy to just write bit after unrelated bit, Titus always brings a cohesive, complete show. Titus’ comedy is part rant, part confession, part therapy, but ALWAYS funny.  His reputation is one of a hard, funny comic who takes no prisoners and gives the audience everything he has, in every show he does. He has tackled the world, relationships, families, the human race and most of all, himself. Mark’s career flourished in LA, first, fulfilling his dream of appearing on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson then subsequent appearances with Jay Leno. Mark landed a job as host of Totally Hidden Video for the FOX network, playing different characters in hidden camera situations and then hosting Friday Night Videos for NBC. Mark has made guest appearances on Mad About You and Third Rock from the Sun. For Comedy Central Mark has appeared on Premium Blend; The A-List; Dr. Katz; and Make Me Laugh. Mark wrote and starred in his own sitcom for NBC but the pilot wasn’t chosen for the fall season. Head of NBC, Warren Littlefield picked a show called “Union Square” instead. It lasted three episodes. Mark predicts that his show would have lasted at least four. When the word came down that the project wasn’t a go Mark magically received a call from the top rated morning show in the San Francisco Bay Area to be the roving entertainment reporter/host. For five years Mark brought his unique comic expertise to the man on street format and enjoyed the original approach to interviewing newsmakers, movie stars and everyday folk. In 1997 Mark achieved the comedy version of the hat trick when, during a show, he made a women (name withheld) laugh so hard she wet her pants, cried, and liquid came out of her nose. There is no higher honor. A favorite on the comedy club; college; and corporate circuit, Mark has also opened for Chris Issak, Celene Dion, Vanessa Williams, Paul Anka, Kenny Rogers, Olivia Newton John, Smokey Robinson, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Rick Springfield. The prestigious ELAN AWARDS has chosen Mark as Master of Ceremonies five times, and Anthony Robbins has employed Mark to liven up his financial seminars. Every Tuesday in Mill Valley, California, Mark runs a comedy showcase at the 142 Throckmorton Theatre new comics a chance to develop. Veterans like Dana Carvey, Robin Williams, and Richard Lewis have also stopped by. AZHAR USMAN is a standup comedian, actor, writer, playwright, and producer. He is one of the hottest standup comics based in Chicago; CNN called him "America's Funniest Muslim," and Georgetown University identified him as "one of the 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World." In 2010, standup icon Dave Chappelle–for whom Azhar has opened over 50 times–commented "Azhar Usman is untouchable." As the co-founder of the international comedy showcase "Allah Made Me Funny–The Official Muslim Comedy Tour," he has toured over 20 countries, on five continents. His comedy has been profiled/reviewed by over 100 major world media outlets including The New York Times, The Economist, BBC, The Guardian, NPR, TIME Magazine, Al-Jazeera, USA Today, and Fox News. Besides appearing regularly on television, and in numerous documentary and independent films, he served as executive producer of Mo Amer's first one-hour standup special "Legally Homeless" (directed by Jay Chapman), and most recently, served as a creative consultant on Hannibal Buress' 2016 Netflix comedy special, "Comedy Camisado." Azhar guest stars as KKYMAN CANDAHAR on Amazon Studios' new big-budget original series PATRIOT (created, written, and directed by Steve Conrad). 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).

Comedy Genius, Phil Hendrie. Visit www.PhilHendrieShow.com and sign up for his daily program and gain access to his 30,000 hours of commercial free archives. 

Also Comedian Bruce Smirnoff, Broadcasting Legend Mark Thompson, and Professor Corey Brettschneider.

Phil Hendrie is a creative genius chock full of character, comedy and commentary — that’s Phil Hendrie. Famous for concocting a cast of fictional characters, all of whom he plays on air while simultaneously serving as host of his national talk radio program, Hendrie actually started out as a disc jockey at WBJW 1440 AM in Winter Park, Fla., a suburb of Orlando. After 15 years working as a disc jockey at stations across the country, he realized he hated what he was doing. Moving to Los Angeles, Hendrie debuted in talk radio as a weekend host at KFI-AM 640.

In 1990 at KVEN-AM in Ventura, Calif., Hendrie introduced his first fictional character on air — an Iraqi, Raj Fahneen. The Gulf War was happening and Fahneen vociferously defended Saddam Hussein. Thinking he was a real person, listeners went ballistic and the phones lit up. An entire cast of characters would evolve from that moment on, marking Hendrie’s place in radio history.

Hendrie’s popularity resulted in the radio show going national in 1999. By 2006, he was ready to explore the next chapter of his career — acting in front of the camera. He departed from radio and quickly added to his resume which already included Trey Parker’s and Matt Stone’s motion picture, Team America: World Police, as well as television roles on Andy Richter Controls the Universe, Richard Appel’s A.U.S.A., and Judd Apatow’s North Hollywood. He also starred in Steve Levitan’s Phil Hendrie and wrote, executive produced and starred in Phil at the Gate.

For the last 10 years, Hendrie has regularly played characters on FOX’s popular animated series King of the Hill and Futurama. Other recent television work includes roles on Giants of Radio, The Replacements, Three Strikes, Mike Birbiglia’s Secret Public Journal, David Mamet’s The Unit, and NBC’s Teachers. He also played Nets Coach in the motion picture, Semi-pro. Hendrie continues to act today and is currently working on the motion picture, Last Call.

Although he enjoyed acting on a full-time basis, Hendrie missed the daily creative outlet that radio provided. In 2007, he returned to national radio in the late evenings, but in the Spring of 2014 he finally severed his ties with radio and made the show available exclusively online via podcasts. He has come a long way since doing voices as a child growing up in Arcadia, CA. Influenced by comedy greats such as Jackie Gleason, Lenny Bruce, and “Emperor” Bob Hudson, Hendrie has artfully carved his own niche in comedy and the spoken word format.

Bruce Smirnoff's show business career began at the age of 13, when he tried to attempt an acrobatic stunt he witnessed on the Ed Sullivan Show. The next day, from his hospital   room in ICU, Bruce chose the guitar as his next foray into the performance world, convinced this would net him the attention from the females he so desired at school! Armed with no real ability, a low IQ, and no interest, whatsoever, from females, Bruce soon found something he was good at, STAND-UP COMEDY.

At Boston University in the late 70's, Bruce became famous ushering in the tremendous comedy boom that swept Boston, which included people like homegrown Jay Leno. Bruce wound up in L.A. in '78, where he spent the next twenty-two years, leading to dozens and dozens of national TV appearances and his 1998 critically acclaimed, award winning One-Man Show, "Other Than My Health, I Have Nothing.And Today, I Don't Feel So Good!" The show ran two years in L.A., then made stops in Toronto, New York, Cleveland and Kansas City.

Currently residing in Florida, Bruce headlines in top comedy clubs and gated communities throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia, where his topical humor and quick wit have won audiences everywhere. He has opened for stars like Julio Iglesias, the Righteous Brothers, Gregory Hines, and Andrew Dice Clay.

Also Corey Brettschneider who is a Professor of Political Science at Brown University, where he teaches courses in political theory and public law. He is also Professor, by courtesy, of Philosophy. He holds a Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University and a J.D. from Stanford Law School.

Professor Brettschneider works at the intersection of constitutional law and democratic theory. He has also been a visiting professor at law schools, including The University of Chicago, Fordham and Harvard.

Winner of the American Book Award Journalist Emil Guillermo, plus David interviews an angry listener. 

Janeane Garofalo stars in David's daughter's favorite movie Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. Janeane is one of the bravest voices of our generation. Do you need to know anything else about her? Other than we love Janeane Garofalo? There are comics who have never thrown a punch in their lives who have actually punched people for saying anything bad about Janeane. In fact I should have one of those guys on the show.

Rhonda Hansome and Tom Ryan plus Professor Corey Brettschneider.

Today's show covers Boston's comedy scene, the Catholic Church, Matt Drudge, and Trump's Travel Ban.

Barry Crimmins is one of American history’s greatest political satirists. Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait directed a documentary about Barry, it’s called Call Me Lucky and you can download it on all the streaming services. Louis CK just directed Barry’s new standup special it’s called Barry Crimmins: Whatever Threatens You and you can stream it over at www.LouieCK.net. This is what Louis says about Barry, “When I started out in the clubs in Boston, Barry was one of the Titans. One of the great comics of the time and he was singularly responsible for fostering a massive standup comedy scene in Boston that begat some of the best comedians of the last 35 years.Most importantly, Barry is hilarious and brilliant. A lot of comedians fall into categories or clusters but I've never seen what Barry does repeated anywhere. He has an approach to American life, American leadership and the people here and where we have been and where we are headed and why we do what we do that just blows me away. I think that his comedic voice is essential. That's why I made his special.”

Barry is also author of Never Shake Hands With A War Criminal.

Jimmy Pardo is the host of the wildly popular podcast Never Not Funny. In addition to his comedy CDs Uno, Pompous Clown and Sprezzatura, in 2007 Pardo appeared on the comedy compilation CD Comedy Death-Ray. He last hosted the game show Race to Escape on the Science Channel.

Dr. Katz, Cassie Grimaldi and The Insecure Morons. Dave Attell has been called one of the greatest standup comics whoever did it. If you ask the greats they will tell you they became great by watching Attell. He is considered a boundless fearless joke writer, and his work ethic makes him one of the most prolific artists working today. 

Dean Obeidallah hosts The Dean Obeidallah Show, on SiriusXM, which is the only daily national radio show hosted by a Muslim American. He is a comic and a lawyer.

Cassie Grimaldi is a comedy writer who has been published in The New Yorker. The Insecure Morons are making their first and hopefully of many appearances on the David Feldman Show.

Dave Attell works closely with the National Military Family Association. Please donate to this wonderful cause by going to www.militaryfamily.org.

According to their site:

"NMFA is the voice of military families because, for 46 years, we have proven that we stand behind service members, their spouses, and their children. Our Association is the “go to” source for Administration Officials, Members of Congress, and key decision makers when they want to understand the issues facing our families. They know we have “boots on the ground” with military families and understand better than anyone that “military families serve, too.” Through the support and programs we provide, and our respected voice on Capitol Hill, at the Pentagon and Veterans Administration, our Association always looks out for the families who stand behind the uniform and for those who serve - See more at: http://www.militaryfamily.org/about-us/mission."
