Good episode? Give it some love!
In one of our longest episodes yet, Josh sits down with Comedian and Ellen staff writer Adam Yenser, also known as Kevin the Cashier. We start off talking about Hungry Crowd, Toluca Lake’s newest cafe/restaurant, despite the unwanted adult supervision. Josh hits peak “Larry David” in his nuanced restaurant complains, so take note. We talk about comedy battlegrounds in Stand-Up, Sketch, Improv, and TV writer’s rooms in today’s politically charged climate. Josh brags about his ballin’ in unit laundry, which is the highest luxury in Los Angeles - and also leads to the classic “laundry room fight club” story. We discuss people’s lack of compassion in general, but particularly in LA traffic. Josh shares one of his all time favorite Uber stories. Adam talks about his climb through the ranks in the industry, which highlights a crazy time in late night TV history. We talk comedy, controversy, influences, and technique (which everyone loves). Josh is excited that white guys are the new black guys. We dive into comedy in politics and politics in comedy, and what it’s like being libertarian or conservative in today’s landscape. Oh, and if you want Weinstein talk, get ready. Could there ever be a conservative SNL or Daily Show? Let’s Discuss!
