LA vet Bill Dawes and Australian powerhouse Brendon Burns joined Matt in the offices above Laugh Factory in our longest (and most educational) podcast to date. They discuss everything from Australian genocide to joking about rape, and virtually everything in between. A must listen!

Accomplished writer (Chappelle's Show), director (The Goods, New Girl), and podcaster (The Champs) Neal Brennan is taking the standup world by storm. Just days before taping his first Comedy Central hour special, Neal sat down with Matt to discuss his career, Dave Chappelle, the n-word, and what keeps bringing him back to standup. This is a great one...enjoy!

Moments before taking Chicago Laugh Factory stage for the final time before moving to LA, I sat down with Aaron Weaver to discuss starting standup in Chicago, his future on the west coast, and everything in between. His method of "winging it" career-wise has worked out so far, and he hopes it will carry him to bigger and better things in LA (That is as soon as he gets his car working again). Enjoy!

Mike Young, who was headlining a weekend of shows at Laugh Factory Chicago sits down with me to discuss the relationship between comics and crowds. We were lucky enough to be joined by Camilla Cleese, a comic from LA that was doing a guest spot that night. The three of us discuss everything from ideal show to the worst crowd ever. (Spoiler Alert: Camilla tells an awesome story about her and her dad, John Cleese, getting into some trouble in New Zealand). Enjoy!

Dior Sharp is the sound tech at Laugh Factory Chicago. While he's relatively new to the comedy world, for the past few months he has been watching hours of standup, every single day, from his sound booth. He is a very interesting guy and has a unique view on the comedy scene. Plus his real name is Dior Sharp, which is pretty cool all by itself.

Year after year, comics who make it big in Chicago leave the city that raised them for either New York or Los Angeles. Danny Kallas and Mike Stanley, two of Chicago's most popular comics, have reached that point in their careers. I sat down with them discuss whether or not it's possible to sustain a standup career in Chicago, and whether or not Chicago will always be seen as a stepping stone to bigger and better things on the coasts.

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
