    Beginnings ep. 177: Chris Kelly (writer for SNL and Broad City)

    Hey dudes (non-gender specific), Though I rarely post, I thought my comedy duo's (Wrestling Team) podcast would be of interest. It's called Beginnings, and ostensibly, it's about how comedians (sketch, improv, and stand-up) start out and what leads to a real career, though a lot of the time, it's just about having a fun conversation with the guest. Guests are our favorite people from the New York area and anyone passing through town that we love, though we have a British interview in the works thanks to modern technology. Latest one features James Adomian, who is a super-nice guy and really fun to talk to. Requisite links: Latest Episode RSS Feed iTunes

    I'm from New York, and I want to be informed about cool New York comedy stuff without expending too much effort. Maybe this podcast can help.

    Thanks, Max!

    New episode here with Kurt Braunohler of the Neutrino Video Project and Kurt and Kristen! (cameo by Kristen if that catches your fancy)

    iTunes

    And if this tickles your fancy, why not rate it on iTunes? Or eat a sandwich? Both are viable options.

    Are those the only two things that can happen to your fancy (catching, tickling)?

    If anyone has a spare moment, we'd like to really expand the listenership in 2011, and that requires iTunes reviews. If you can click on the iTunes link above and launch iTunes and write a review, we'd really appreciate it. And we can send you some swag as well for your troubles or read a message in the plug section at the end. (e-mail at jokes at wrestlingteam dot org to let us know).

    Ah, I've been busy searching for a job, so I haven't posted for a while, but stand-up Claudia Cogan and NY sketch group Two Fun Men have been on the show.

    And the latest episode features Greg Proops in his dressing room at Carolines. Who was super fun and exciting to talk to. Guest starring Pete Holmes, Dan Soder and Bill Santiago!

    Latest episode guest stars Mike Lawrence, most recently of John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show. We have a long discussion about class and comedy as well as debate about the NY improv scene!

    iTunes


    This episode also marks the end of the podcast's specific focus on comedy careers. First off, there's a million podcasts about comedy around at this point and second, we've learned a lot specifically about starting a sustaining a career in these last eighteen episodes. From here on out, the show will be a comedy podcast about creating, creating for a living, job anxiety and all the existential issues that go along with being a creative person. The show won't really change, except for broadening the discussion. Next episode in two weeks will be Kevin Allison of The State and the Risk! podcast!
