T Shirt aficionado and host of the long running Ding Dong Show and fixture at The Comedy Store, Don Barris takes direct aim at Jon B for a laundry list of issues. Starting with being late, an in and out wifi signal, and calling in from a 1997 Nokia flip phone. It was an epic time spent busting Jon at every turn, talking about music, answering very tough “what if” questions and ultimately ending with Don proclaiming himself the best guest of all time, which we can't argue with.

Summary: In today's episodes of The Tragedy Academy, Jay invites the host of the podcast I Am Just Gaying, Hernando Del Castillo. Hernando brings us along to his journey of reflection, awareness, and metamorphosis.

Who better to walk us through a history of standup comedy than the man who wrote the book on it, Wayne Federman, and authenticated, brilliant standup comedian Shawn Pelofsky. The first comedy club may have been a primitive weapon with some funny carvings, so we're going back only as far as Mark Twain and Will Rogers and moving right on into podcasting and Tik Tok hilarity. Plus Fritz and Weezy are recommending American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins, The History of the Sitcom on CNN and Streaming, Ted Lasso on Apple +, The History of Stand-up: From Mark Twain to Dave Chappelle by Wayne Federman and, brace for impact, Weezy and Shawn take a deep dive into The Bachelor in Paradise.Path Points of Interest:Wayne FedermanShawn PelofskyShawn Pelofsky on TwitterWayne Federman on TwitterThe History of Stand-up from Mark Twain to Dave Chappelle by Wane FedermanWayne's Podcast - The History of Stand-upAmerican Dirt by Jeanine CumminsJeanineCummins.comHistory of the Sitcom, CNN and StreamingTed Lasso on Apple TVThe Bachelor in ParadiseWayne Federman on Weezy & The SwishIs this Wayne's very first podcast appearance?!Wayne and Weezy, behind the scenes on Weezy and The Swish

Eleanor Kerrigan comes over to talk about the glory days of the Comedy Store. Eleanor and Ari were employees of the Store together at the turn of the century. That sounds weird but it's true. Are we old? Am I old? Is the only thing keeping me young a steady flow of mind-altering substances and laughs from live audiences? Or is it just the general utter lack of responsibility? My friends from high school look like you should call them sir. I look like a guy you'd find sleeping on your lawn on a weekday. Anyway, Eleanor and Ari talk about our favorite time at the Comedy Store. Back in between when it was famous in the '80s and when it was famous again in the 2010s. It was dark in those tweener years. Dark and vicious. That's when I got to the Store. When nobody in LA gave a fuck about that place. Literally, agents and managers were told by their companies to not go there. Crowds were sparse. Really really sparse. Sometimes we couldn't even get enough customers to start the show. And it was a breeding ground for fun. For wild nights. For mayhem. So come along with Ari and Eleanor. Two paid regulars who started as non-comedy employees. And listen to some amazing tales of a time and a place long gone. Back when the Store was the place that made me. When the Store had its balls.

In this episode, Cody talks with stand-up comedian Jessica Singleton. She's always been funny, even as a kid. That's something her mom recently reinforced—that she's always had comedic timing and that she could always find the humor in everything, regardless of how traumatic it got. When her family moved from Mississippi to Alaska, she was in 6th grade. She was forced to leave her friends behind for a place she knew nothing about. She also hated the cold, and her parents continued to struggle with addiction. She says that she lived in a state of fear most of her life. She was abused, neglected and abandoned. There was a lot going on that was hard to process. So, she used humor to shield and heal herself. Her self-deprecating, stream-of-consciousness humor comes from those experiences. So does her empathy. It's what continues to draw her to comedy—her set is successful if she can, even for a moment, take someone away from their troubles. It's taken her a while to get to where she is now—being a regular at the Comedy Store, performing on sold out tours, working on her next comedy album and she just released a country song. It took a lot of self-reflection and recognition of self-worth. She says it's about shifting your perspective and setting goals. That it's about being present. And comedy is where she feels most present. On a stage in front of a bunch of strangers, making them feel like they're not so alone. This is her calling, and she believes that when you find the thing that you're meant to be, it'll happen. That when you direct energy and perseverance in a certain direction, the doors will continue to open.

Brady Matthews is a long-time Comedian and newly found Artist. Brady has been performing stand-up since the age of 25 beginning at the famous "Comedy Store" in Los Angeles. Recently Brady moved out to Las Vegas to test out the Comedy Scene and focus on his new passion of Art. Being a comedian and actor for so long, Brady needed another outlet.

In an era dictated by political correctness, hosts Andrew Schulz and Akaash Singh, along with AlexxMedia and Mark Gagnon, could care less about sensitivities. If it's funny and flagrant it flies. If you are sensitive this podcast is not for you. But if you miss the days of comedians actually being funny instead of preaching to a quire then welcome to The Flagrancy.

This one kicks off with a bang, as we discuss how America's Got Talent was able to land a HUGE contestant. After that, it's breaking American Pickers news, and it pertains to the show's alpha, Mike Wolfe. Danish talks about an audience member he encountered at the Comedy Store during his set. Her choice of clothing or lack therof certainly raised many questions. Then, it's a little MMA talk: we get into Connie McGregor's demise. We also cover his post fight antics and allegations. After that, it's a sad Making a Murderer update (a lot of TV talk on this episode). The bad news just keeps on comin'...we're sad to report that the world's tallest horse, Big Jake, has passed away. Please don't ask the date he passed because his owner does NOT want him remembered by a date, you insensitive ghouls. We somehow start discussing Cardi B and her daughter's expensive jewelry. O'Neill expresses his true feelings about the olympic games. We finish it up by talking about this and that and a little reality TV. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Comedian Rick Ingraham is a Comedy Store institution. But he's also the last of a system that was in place going back to the ‘70s, where young comics were baptized and raised in the rites and rituals of the Store. Rick and Marc compare their early careers trying to break into the business and become a club regular. Rick also recalls some of his memorable moments in the different eras of the Store, from when he was touring with Andrew Dice Clay to when he was breaking up fights between Joe Rogan and Carlos Mencia.
