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 158 – Paul Gilmartin on George Carlin – Class Clown

Gilmartin_SD

We’re back on a favorite, and not long since the last time we covered it.  I’m not sure if it’s just the demand of listening to the album more than I normally would, but the amazing Paul Gilmartin of The Mental Illness Happy Hour have a great discussion about this album, and also what it means to get the right kind of laughs, and to succeed, comedy-wise, on your own terms.

Episode 155 – Lee Camp on George Carlin – Class Clown

LeeCamp_SD

He’s a stand up, an author, and the host of Redacted Tonight.  Give his work a listen and it’ll become obvious why the influence of Carlin was so important to him.  We discuss Class Clown and how important it is to have not only a point of view and a voice, but a reason for being on stage.  Not all stand ups necessarily agree that their work should have a point beyond laughter, but Lee’s a strong proponent of having one, and we have a great discussion about the purpose behind his material.

Episode 124 – Dean Haglund

FB_HaglundWhen you first saw him as Langly on The X-Files, you had no idea that behind that facade was a man who has heard Swedish comedians covering George Carlin.  Yes, covering a Carlin bit.  Dean Haglund talks about his early comedy influences, his first albums, learning stand-up and studying comedy, and also gives us an LA history lesson.

Episode 115 – Dan Pasternack on George Carlin – Take Offs and Put Ons

Pasternack

Consummate comedy nerd, comedy vinyl collector and comedian in his own right (yes, he had a song played on Dr. Demento’s show when he was 11), Dan Pasternack is here to talk Carlin’s “Take Offs and Put Ons,” not to mention putting most people’s comedy stories to shame with one encounter involving both George Carlin and Stan Freberg.  Enjoy, and be sure to read his articles on McSweeney’s about his comedy vinyl collection.

Episode 105 – Dave Waite on George Carlin – A Place for My Stuff

Dave WaiteDave Waite‘s comedy album Hotdoggin’ comes out tomorrow, August 12th on Stand Up! Records.  Today, he talks about one of his favorite albums, chosen at random from a few contenders – George Carlin’s A Place for My Stuff, which was a ton of fun to revisit.  Stand up mixed with sketch is hard to do right, and while Carlin does, it’s easy to see why few people have done it right since – namely, it’s hard to be that brilliant as a stand up and then also spend the time to translate your unique voice into sketch.  Awesome stuff.

On a sad note, the world lost Robin Williams today.  Listen toward the end for two clips from my favorite Robin Williams film, Good Morning, Vietnam.

Episode 76 – John Dimaggio on George Carlin – Class Clown

John DimaggioThis week, the Bender head comes off the bookshelf for the man behind the shiny metal ass.  John DiMaggio is not only the voice of Bender, and of Jake on Adventure Time, but he’s also a huge Carlin fan.  We sat down and talked a mutual favorite album, Class Clown, and I had the good fortune to watch and hear him imitate Carlin.  Amazing stuff.  John’s also the producer and narrator of the new documentary “I Know That Voice,” about almost every voice actor you’ve ever heard.  I Know that Voice will be on demand from December 1-21st, and available on iTunes starting January 7, 2014.

Oh, and in this episode, I also come up with an idea for the greatest a capella group ever.
