It's just me again. I talk about ADD, my relationship, and Puerto Rico mostly. Also meditation. Shoot me a message: quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com Rate, review, subscribe and tell your friends and enemies!
#51 - The Flu-Themed Episode
It's time for the bi-weekly solo episode of Quitting Comedy. I've got a new drop for the soundboard, and I talk a lot about having the flu. What a great time! quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#20 - Kate Willett
Kate and I hung out and chatted for a while, probably two months ago now, but she hasn't quit comedy so the interview still holds up! Listen to her and I here, then check out Netflix's "Comedy Lineup" coming out this summer. Or find her online, you know how that works. @katewillett, @jimtews Email the show - quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com Thanks for listening!
#34 - Matt Fulchiron
Back in the early summer I had Matt "The Full Charge" Fulchiron over to chat. You might know Matt from Comedy Central, or opening for Daniel Tosh or Tom Segura. But I know him from the shows we did in the basement of a bar in Cleveland, and I love what Matt does. We talk a lot about day jobs, persistence, results, and all kinds of good shit. Thanks for listening! @TheFullCharge @JimTews quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#44 - Twas Three Nights Before Christmas
This solo episode is a quiet one. It's mostly me talking about Christmas and reading "Twas The Night Before Christmas" at three in the morning.
#41 - Liz Miele
Cushion your cyber Monday comedown with this fantastic talk between me and Lize Miele. She's a fantastic comic, and she works as smart as she does hard. Take a listen, and check Liz out if you don't already know her. @lizmiele @jimtews quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#37 - I Alone Love Kimchi
Another solo adventure this week. I talk about the boring YouTube videos I watch, wanting to be a cobbler, and my 23 and Me results. Thanks for listening! quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com @jimtews
#52 - Victor Varnado
I hung out with comedian, director, and creator, Victor Varnado. As an African-American with Albinism, he's had a unique set of challenges to overcome, and he's done it. We talk a lot about performance art, imposter syndrome, and making your own shit. Lots of good stuff! Thanks for listening. Rate and review on iTunes! Tell your friends!  @varnado @jimtews quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#25 - Fuck Plastic Straws, I Guess
It's the solo podcast. I tried to get my cat, Arthur, to join me. But he didn't. He really made me look foolish, which is what he loves to do. I talk about escape rooms, plastic straws, and being petty. I also answer questions from Instagram. @jimtews quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#30 - Corinne Fisher
A few months back I traveled uptown to visit Corinne Fisher. You might know her from her insanely popular podcast "Guys We Fucked" or her Justin Bieber obsessed podcast, "Two Less Lonely Girls". This was a great talk, occasionally interrupted by animals and sirens. Thanks for listening! @PhilanthropyGal @JimTews
#26 - Clark Jones
This week, it's Chicago's own Clark Jones! He's one host of one of New York's best comedy shows, "Comedy At The Knit." I love watching Clark perform, and it was great to sit down and talk with him for a bit. Check out Comedy At The Knit every Sunday at the Knitting Factory at 9pm. @theeclarkjones @jimtews quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#14 - Joe Zimmerman
This week's guest is Joe Zimmerman. You've seen him on Conan, Comedy Central, and maybe opening for Brian Regan. Good guy, really laid back interview. Just two, overly laid back guys talking about mostly comedy. Once you're done, check out Joe's Podcast called "A Great Listening Experience”. And this summer, grab his new Comedy Central album, "Innocence". And email me sometime - quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com Thanks! @jimtews @joezimmerman
#2 - Claudia Cogan
My friend, former co-worker, and neighbor, Claudia Cogan and I talk about the horror of being on Last Comic Standing. Claudia tells me about the time she actually did quit, and introduces a new question: If your parents were comedians, which comedians would they be? claudiacogan.com @blaudiablogan Thanks for listening!
#12 - Andy Haynes
You've seen him on Conan and Comedy Central, he has yet to quit comedy, everyone give it up for Andy Haynes! We had a fun conversation that was all over the place, mostly because my cat kept interrupting us, and Andy and I both have terrible attention spans, but it's a good one. We talk about work ethic, being a pain in the ass, and how not to be ashamed of working part time. Thanks for listening! @imandyhaynes @jimtews quittingcomedy.com
#32 - Todd Barry
Todd Barry was gracious enough to let me into his apartment to see his new cat and ask him questions about comedy, life, and not getting self-conscious about being too chill on stage. Go see Todd live if you get the chance. Or read his book "Thank You For Coming to Hattiesburg," or watch his Netflix special "Spicy Honey". @toddbarry @jimtews quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#17 - Jim Solo
Since we last spoke I wrote an op-ed for the New York Times, almost met Spike Jonze, and bombed in front of Gerard Butler. Email the show - quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com Thanks for listening!
#54 - Robert Dean
Sorry for the brief hiatus! We're back on track with another interview episode, this time with the wonderful Robert Dean. A very funny, and inventive guy who loves doing comedy, and loves going to amusement parks alone. You can see him on Amazon's "Inside Jokes" or check out his album "It's Not Easy Being Dean" wherever you get your albums. And check out his solo show "Grazyinski" May 2nd at Littlefield.= @obertdean on insta, @robertdean on twitter Rate and review the podcast on iTunes if you get a chance! quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#46 - I Won't Apologize For My Dumb Hat
First solo podcast of the new year! Lots of fun stuff: A guy who licks a doorbell, poor gym etiquette, buying a hate while drunk, and my new best friend, a Roomba. Thanks for listening! quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com @jimtews
#42 - Please Clap
Let's catch up, everyone. Just me and you. And a soundboard. Lots of valuable information in this solo episode, like how to get out of a comedy slump, and how to clap on two and four. Thanks for listening! quittingcomedy@gmail.com @jimtews
#64 - Billy Wayne Davis
I was able to hang with Billy Wayne Davis for a bit while he was in town. He's got great stories, and an incredibly sharp point of view. Take a listen, and go see Billy Wayne live - bwdtour.comquittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#61 - I Didn't Do Anything Dumb This Week
Another solo episode. Had a Friday night off, and got self-indulgent. quittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#58 - Greg Stone
I hung out at Greg's place in a room full of his action figures to talk about his path to greatness, and why he was broke for ten years. (It had to do somewhat with the action figures)@gregstone_@jimtewsquittingcomedypodcast@gmail.com
#10 - Alison Leiby
This week I sat down with comedian, storyteller, and writer, Alison Leiby. She's had a fascinating trajectory, going from top level college athlete, to nearly dying, to storytelling, to standup and writing for such shows as The President Show, and last year's Triumph special. Thanks for listening! @AlisonLeiby @jimtews

#15 - All By Myself
It's my first solo episode. I love talking to myself. I'll be doing these every other week, alternating with the interviews. I'm keepin' it light. Keepin' it fun. There's some topical talk, slow musings, and personal news. I even made some sound drops. And I read listener mail! Thanks for listening!
