Originally from New York City, Liam McEneaney is considered by many to be one of the country’s top comedians, in addition to his work as a top writer and producer.
In this week's powerful Tell Your Friends! podcast repeat, Liam sits in Williamsburg's McCarren Park with the late comedian and classic New York City comedy character Gary Marinoff. Gary traces his career in standup, living with his mother while taking odd jobs. After her death, he descended into the homeless shelter systems of New York and Hollywood, Florida. Gary gave it all for comedy, his one love, and he talks about it all. Plus a story from Bob Powers and poetry from Dale Goodson. Support the Tell Your Friends! podcast at www.patreon.com/radio
Six years ago, Liam trekked out to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, where cupcake maven Allison Robicelli and her husband Matt were neighborhood fixtures, having grown up there, and turned their bakery into an international institution.  Liam talked to Allison about her cookbook, the Robicelli's bakery, being famous in Japan, seeing their food used in porn, and her years managing the late Pip's Comedy Club in Brooklyn.

This week's Tell Your Friends! History's Greatest Podcast! is a corker, as this week's guest, writer/showrunner/show creator/comedy force of nature SHADI PETOSKY starts busting Liam's ball immediately. Shadi has created some great TV for kids and adults, from segments for Yo Gabba Gabba! to her own beloved show, Danger & Eggs. Shadi sat with Liam at the great Hollywood coffee shop Sabor y Cultura and talked about her career, why her very successful TV show had to go away, about why she left standup comedy after a group of her friends were forced to fight with a Midwestern hack over her honor, and why she doesn't want to consider herself a transgender role model. We also get into her time as podcast network owner during the most difficult time of her life, living in a house where she would see famous people coming in and out all the time, and a touching encounter with the late Brody Stevens. Also, Liam outs himself as a total bougie fancy lad. PLUS, in a mighty intro, Liam talks about the Gilroy Garlic festival shooting, weird hotel toilets, and how Paul Krassner helped inspire him to create an alternative high school newspaper that somehow failed to get him into trouble.

PLUS 2 stories from Bob Powers. Support the Tell Your Friends! podcast at www.patreon.com/radio
