In this show, I pay a little tribute to my home town of Boston, rememberung just how great a place it is in the wake of The Boston Marathon bombing. there is music from a film called The Boondock Saints and moments from The Boston Garden Tribute. And then, there is the one in a million comedy of Jackie Kashian. Jackie is fresh off a smash performance on Conan, we talk about the influence of her dad in her life, and her unique perspective on movies and why she's never seen Godfather II. Great show.
Check out everything about Jackie, from her podcast; The Dork Forest, her book and special for Comedy Central, and the Conan appearance.
She is a joy!

Two great guests on this show loaded with show biz talent while being very coll multifaceted people. First, we talk to the executive producer of Totally Biased with W. Kmau Bell on FX, Chuck Sklar. Then a great conversation with the host of America's Secret Slang on History channel, Zach Selwyn. Chuck and I have known each other since early standup days, talked about his life and work with Chris Rock and Louis CK-and all while he was ordering Chinese food in his apartment in NY. Zach is multi-talented, has 3 shows on the air and a terrific musician as well. We played his song "White People Problems" hysterical! We also spoke at length about Taxidermy. Enjoy!!!

The Self Help Comedy Hour w Ed Crasnick #13 Denise Crosby, Roger Nygard, Karen Kilgariff, Cathy Ladman
The Self Help Comedy Hour with Ed Crasnick #13
Special Guests: Denise Crosby, Roger Nygard, Karen Kilgariff and Cathy Ladman
Terrific show talking with actress/producer and Star Trek The Next Generation legend, Denise Crosby. Not only is she Bing Crosby's grandaughter, she left the show and came back as her own daughter! I can't even be here as myself. Plus Director of the Trekkies movies and award winning editor of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Roger Nygard. And quadruple threat Karen Kilgariff sings one of her amazing songs. And a little therapy with great comedian and actress Cathy Ladman. Hope you like it, or your money back!
Come for the celebration, stay for the fear of abandonment-
