This is the time when comedians can be funny and real, show all of who they are. I talked with Paul Provenza (The Aristocrats, The Green Room with Paul Provenza, Set List) and Troy Conrad about their new show Set List, which is an improvised stand-up show, live and now on TV. We talked about using your imagination and not your material, kind of a metaphor for life. We talked about all the different skills a standup has, and some of the best around, both here and around the world. Plus, a wonderful song from emmy nominated composer/musician/arranger Gary Stockdale! Gary has worked in all media for years, has doen all the usic for Penn & Teller and many others.
Check them out, they are artistic pioneers, funny and brilliant!
Keep coming back, it works if you work it!

Great conversation with a show business renaissance man, and a man who has stayed in his share of Ramada Renaissance Hotels on the road. Wayne is a show business historian and a great standup, writer and now even produces his own film festival featuring people like Sara Silverman.

The Self Help Comedy Hour #9 with Paul Gilmartin, Tom Dimenna as Telly Savalas, Ginger Smith & Kahlill Sabbagh
This show puts the V in Variety, The M in Mental Health, and The func in dysfunction. Paul Gilmartin is open, honest and and real about his feelings, deperession and the work with his great show The Mental Illness Happy Hour. You'll hear how doing a show about unedited subjects like mental illness and mental health, have helped him and so many others. And a visit from a talented actor Tom Dimenna who has a show wher he plays Telly Savalas. There's no one who puts the self in self help like Telly. Plus, music by Ginger Smith & Kahlill Sabbagh, a married couple who refuse to let raising a young family stop them from performing, writing music and being the true artists they are. A great emotional roller coaster ride of a show!
