Dead Authors Chapter 7: P.G. Wodehouse

The Thrilling Adventure Hour #63: Beyond Belief

The Todd Glass Show, Episodes 35 & 36

This month’s Dead Authors features the hilarious Brian Stack as the quite elderly P.G. Wodehouse. Brian’s delightfully twisted and it was a ridiculous amount of fun to riff with him.

The latest episode of Beyond Belief, “Teenagers of The Corn,” has me and my radio wife Paget Brewster in an adventure that’s equal parts horror and TV nostalgia. I absolutely adore playing Frank Doyle opposite Paget’s Sadie, and guest stars like James Urbaniak, Simon Helberg and Josh Ritter make things extra adorable.

In two episodes of The Todd Glass Show, it’s the best of both worlds. In Episode 35, Todd and I are just some silly-ass fools. In Episode 36, Todd and I discuss getting to “100%” in terms of supporting those who do not enjoy the rights that you might enjoy. As much fun as it is to goof around with Todd, I also enjoy getting into social issues with him. It’s never about pretending to have all the answers with him; it’s about asking the questions and trying to figure things out together.

Okay. Download those and then we’ll have a free activity period. Also, it’s pizza for lunch day!

FREE COMEDY, HELLO!

Today finds me appearing on two podcasts, Doug Loves Movies and The Todd Glass Show.

On Episode 524 of DLM I appear with the very funny Ben Schwartz and the deeply absurd T.J. Miller, alongside father-and-son contest winners Tom and Jeff Levack. And, of course, my ever-present sidekick, Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds.


On Episode 31 of The Todd Glass Show, it’s Part 2 of my freewheeling chat with one of my all-time favorites, Todd Glass. We never actually get around to discussing the price of wheels.

FREE COMEDY FRIDAY.

I was thrilled to appear on Episode 30 of The Todd Glass Show, the podcast that has comedian Todd Glass doing a show. Be on the hear-out (it’s an audio podcast) for a new character with the most impenetrably generic foreign accent you’ve likely ever heard.

Todd is an old pal from Philadelphia and one of my favorite comedians of all time. He was a few years ahead of me when I started stand-up, and from him I learned how important being in the moment is for a performer at a time when most of the “role models” in my comedy community were doing their acts by rote night after night.  Watching Todd, I was always— and still am— reminded that comedy is supposed to be fun.

Here is a direct download.

Todd-zel Tov!
