Had such a good time talking with Wendy. I think you'll really enjoy finding out about her life and beyond her brilliance as a comedian, is a very conscious person who gets very little sleep, which somehow has helped her perform. Funny thing about this episode, as usual, crazy adventures in technophobia for me. We couldnt find a place for quiet, so we did the interview in her car in front of her house. Very good conversation, only half of it was lost, i hit a button. So, we went back and did a chunk on skype, and would have done it under water, if i could have found a way to do so. Cathy Ladman, once again great as my therapist. And...a wonderful singer-songwriter, Sonya Bender!
Keep coming back, it works if you work it. Big week, two big shows coming up later this week...stay tuned.

If you love to laugh and grieve, this is the show for you! Great conversation with the hysterically funny Todd Glass, and old friend who is one the best comedians working today. Todd loves standup, and he's great at it, always fresh and always real on stage-which is something very rare. Then we have an encore medley from The Blanks, totally entertaining and unique acapella band who were also known as Ted's Band on the show Scrubs. Then, a fascinating conversation with a guy who has a great sense of humor, and who is The CEO of The Miss Foundation; an organization that helps families deal with the loss of a child. We talked about how Barry deals with the loss of his own daughter Erica, and how he helps others through The Miss Foundation and also is working to get a bill passed in congress to support families dealing with loss.

I think you will love this episode. Howie Mandel is very funny, also very insightful and honest about mental health issues including his own battle with OCD. Plus, a special medley by the great COMEDY acapella band from the show Scrubs 'THE BLANKS." This is truly the intersection of self help and comedy.

Had a great talk with my friend Phil Rosenthal. Phil is the creator of Everybody Loves Raymond among many other shows and projects. We talked about Springsteen, what it feels like and what he went through doing the show. And we talked a lot about movies and Phil's famous Movie Night, which he's been doing for over 30 years. We talked in his screening room, in his home, where his wife sleeps and where his children used to play with their toys!
