Happy Labor Day weekend, America. And to everyone else – Hello! This is a comedy podcast about other comedy podcasts. Follow me?

Thanks to our sponsors HOT BREATH podcast with Joel Byars and Patreon supporter B. Ellen Wesley!

As I was thinking about taking a week off of podcasting to celebrate the holiday, I decided to do something a little different. I’ll give you SIX podcasts instead! Yes, it’s true. Although only partially true. Fuzzy math, fake news. But real podcasts.

In short, I am sharing with you six OTHER podcast episodes on which I have been interviewed. YES – THIS IS A SIX IN ONE COMEDY PODCAST BONANZA! You will hear some info that you have not picked up on the School of Laughs podcast before. And, you may hear a couple of stories for the second  time. Either way, lots of fun conversations with some excellent hosts. Let’s get into the details!


My Peeps Show Episode #4 “RIK ROBERTS”

First we go way back to my appearance as a guest on the MY PEEPS SHOW podcast with Anthony Rece. Aside from having the catchiest theme song of any show I’ve been a guest on, Anthony is a genuinely curious host who gets the most out of his guests. We covered a lot of ground on the show and I know you’ll dig it!

In this episode I get to know the very talented Rik Roberts.Rik has been doing stand up for 27 years and whether its Riks great comedic storytelling or his 2nd to none Barney impression from the Andy Griffith Show his talent is unquestioned.

After you’ve tuned up your productivity, listen to Joe Taylor and the ON FAITH’S EDGE podcast. Joe is a former atheist who is searching for answers and learning his way to heaven.

We got to hang out at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville, ate some yogurt and recorded this conversation.

School of Hard knock Knocks Episode #65 Rik Roberts – Comedy under Christian constraints

Need a little more religion? How about this interview from Australian Morry Morgan? Morry hosts the School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast. Sorry wonders how you can be a Christian and still make fun of things? Aren’t there too many constraints? You’ll hear my perspective on finding the funny within the beliefs of Christianity, and how being squeaky clean can be great for business.

The Art of Bombing  Episode #59 RIK ROBERTS

Lastly, lets be honest, all the gigs aren’t valet parking and standing ovations. On THE ART OF BOMBING comedy podcast, Dave Blublitz explores the dark reality of failure. Lucky for us, there are lots of lessons in the lack of laughs!

“Do you ask questions before you agree to a gig? Or are you so desperate for stage time that you take every gig offered? This week I’m joined by Rik Roberts from the “School Of Laughs”. Rik has a couple of great stories about bombing at a corporate gig and bombing with a whole Improv troupe in front of 3,000 people. We talk about asking lots of questions before accepting gigs, pros & cons of self producing projects, having a marketing plan, and more.”
