Comedian Jessimae Peluso joins me to analyze a joke I've been working on about making friends and trust. We are both from Syracuse, NY and obsessed over the same weatherman for different reasons. We discuss Joe Rogan's podcast, and how it did for education what Omar on "the wire" did for black gay men. He shows dudes that like weed and fighting that it's cool to do tons of research about interesting shit. Great episode, she is so funny and authentic and she for sure thinks I'm a serial killer. #wdtl #wdtLOL subscribe and comment! find her on any social media outlet, she's probably already taken over it so it's an easy find. email me at whydidnttheylaughpodcast@gmail.com

#24: Periscope Song Requests Live

July 16, 2015

I take song/topic requests from strangers on periscope including: smashing pumpkins/potato salad, U2/donald trump, Ariana Grande/salsa music, elton john/confederate flag. Things get exciting when I have to think on my feet. Follow me on Periscope to get involved in the next song party. I also discuss "The sports Gene" and why you shouldn't read it because it will make you sound racist at parties when you bring up provable facts.

#23: Tamer Kattan - The Most Interesting Human Alive

July 10, 2015

I show the transition of a stand up bit about jack's suicide in Titanic because he "needed to bail", into a song about Jack's suicide as well as Bella's autism in Twilight. I interview Tamer Kattan who is a half Muslim Half Jew from Egypt raised in East LA with a surfer bro's accent and a background in Australian advertising. Needless to say he's very interesting and hilarious. #wdtl #wdtLOL Go to http://DraftKings.com now and enter promo code LAUGH to play for free! email me at whydidnttheylaughpodcast@gmail.com
