You’ve seen Billy Merritt on numerous shows.  If you’re lucky enough (like our own producer, Mike), Billy has taught you improv at UCB.  We had a great time talking about the mind-changing effect Carlin and this album had on how Billy thought about comedy.

Episode 128 – Kliph Nesteroff on Dick Davy

NesteroffKliph Nesteroff is one of the great comedy historians of today, for the same reason he picked a comedian you haven’t heard of.  Dick Davy has all the lasting strength of many of the great comedians from the late 60s you already know, which made this a really fun discussion.  Kliph’s book “The Comedians” comes out this fall, and we couldn’t be more excited to read it.
