    TYF! Podcast #5.9 "GEORGE CARLIN WAY" w/ KEVIN BARTINI, PATRICK CARLIN, LEWIS BLACK

    Hey dudes, I'm relaunching the TYF! podcast.



    Here's episode #3.1:

    As you can see in the photo above the live taping of the TYF! podcast was a blast. I don't really think I need to sell you guys on this too hard, except to say interviewing Lewis Black and Gilbert Gottfried was a total blast.

    In this issue, we talk about hell gigs, corporate gigs, TV gigs, Lewis takes us on the journey creating a TV show with David E. Kelley, Gilbert talks about how Twitter can be an expensive hobby (and midway through, busts out an impression as surprising as it was dead-on accurate).

Each episode includes a variety of formats, including interviews, storytelling, written comedic monologues, and other free-flowing thoughts. Liam McEneany is a longtime staple of the New York comedy scene and therefore has a lot of connections, but seems to value having interesting and engaging guests with a particular story to tell rather than personal friends."

    Re: TYF! LIVE #3: MIKE DOUGHTY and JULIA WERTZ

    DOWNLOAD BY CLICKING ON THE PICTURE:


    Long-time fans will recognize David and Caroline from previous live issues. Live show #1 (with Gilbert Gottfried and Lewis Black), listeners heard Liam McEneaney making fun of them for finding a seat up front after the taping had started. Live show #2 (with Andy Borowitz, Jessi Klein, Chris Gethard, Ophira Eisenberg, and MORE) found Liam reading from an old Dear Abby book he found in their apartment.


    For the third live taping show, Liam takes the action to David and Caroline's back yard in Long Island City, Queens, for a relaxed barbecue/podcast taping in front of a select audience of some friends. Returning TYF! champ Mike Doughty debuts a pair of new songs from his next album, Stellar Motel, plays banjo publicly for the first time ever, and talks about crowdfunding and the most surprisingly popular item he offers as an incentive.


    You can still pledge to Mike's campaign here: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/mikedoughty2


    After getting of to a bit of a rocky start, Julia Wertz opens up about her career as an "urban explorer," breaking into abandoned sites and taking pictures, about her hellish birthday vacation with a politician who told her he cheated on her in an island paradise, and about her forthcoming book, Museum of Mistakes. 


    You can check out her site: http://www.adventurebibleschool.com/


    All that, and Leslie Goshko tells a story about why she only took one friend on a family vacation that one time, and Liam McEneaney reads a piece he wrote for an evening of John Hughes fanfiction reading.

    Episode recorded by: Patrick Holbert

    In this week's issue of the TYF! podcast, we talk to Clara Bizna$$ of Brooklyn hip-hop trio Hand Job Academy. Liam and Clara discuss hip-hop, being taken seriously as a hip-hop artist, mental illness, suicidal depression, and audition to be a Princess at, and working as a cartoon in, The Happiest Place On Earth. It's a truly riveting conversation, and you're gonna like it.


    In addition, we get two stories from Bob Powers, and Liam McEneaney briefly eulogizes Joan Rivers and tells the story of getting arrested for prank calling a schoolmate.

    In this week's issue, we speak to Gary Marinoff, a real New York comedy character; a 35-year veteran of the open mic comedy scene and a regular background actor on 30 Rock.


    And before you decide to wait until next week for a more famous interview, definitely take the time to listen to this, one of the most compelling and human interviews TYF! has done.


    Gary discusses what it takes to follow his dream in show business, how he's been homeless, has been in and out of the shelters, about losing his mother, the only person who believed in him and supported his showbusiness ambition and encouraged him to live his life to the fullest. And about how Philip Michael Thomas got him his SAG card, and how Tina Fey is one of the nicest people you could want to work for in showbiz.


    In addition, we get a poem from Dale Goodson and a fan favorite story from Bob Powers.

    Re: TYF! Podcast #5.7 w/ LEWIS BLACK

    CLICK PHOTO TO DOWNLOAD:



    In this week's issue of Tell Your Friends! History's Greatest Podcast!, we speak to comedy great Lewis Black about his early days in the theater, starting standup opening for plays, how standup helped his playwriting, how he has always believed in running his own spaces, how he threw a chair across the room at the legendary Catch A Rising Star, what he teaches his comedy students, and how the news media has failed and will rise again.  This is a particularly great one, and we highly recommend giving it a listen.


    In addition, Jennifer Glick tells us a story about going on an extreme diet as a teenager, and Jamie Casbon tells us part one of a story about coming to terms with being a transgender male.


    Also, Liam McEneaney talks about his first time doing standup as part of a contest.

    Re: TYF! Podcast #5.9 "GEORGE CARLIN WAY" w/ KEVIN BARTINI, PATRICK CARLIN, LEWIS BLA


    DOWNLOAD THE EPISODE BY CLICKING THE PICTURE:


    PHOTO: Daan van Versendaal



    George Carlin
     was a child of New York City, having grown up on the corner of 121st and Amsterdam in the 1930s and '40s. On October 22nd, 2014, after three years of fighting City Hall and the Catholic Church, the City of New York named that corner "George Carlin Way" in his honor.


    This is the story of two obsessed men, one whose obsessions led him to become one of the world's greatest comedians, and one whose obsession led him to getting George Carlin Way its name.


    We speak to Patrick Carlin, George Carlin's brother, about his life and the neighborhood they grew up in together, we speak to Larry Getlen, author of Conversations With Carlin, about Carlin's life and career, and Kevin Bartini, the comedian who spearheaded the campaign, about his fight with Carlin's old Catholic School to get the street named.


    In addition, we  speak to the comedians who knew him and were influenced by him, including Lewis Black, Dave Attell, Orson Bean, Kelly Carlin, Eddie Brill, Jon Fisch,  Judah Friedlander, Gilbert Gottfried, Tony Hendra, Robert Klein, Jeff Kreisler, Liam McEneaney,  Jim Norton, Colin Quinn, and his widow, Sally Wade.


    In addition, we'll hear Carlin's story in his own words, via old interviews and a bootleg recording. And finally, we recorded the actual speeches made at the ceremony by Colin Quinn and Kevin Bartini.

    The Tell Your Friends! theme song was written and performed by A Brief View of the Hudson
