Finally made it back to the states, although my luggage took an extra day to get here!
To commemorate being back in Los Angeles, I'm releasing this very LA-ish podcast, featuring me and my West Coast co-host Jason, bullshitting while taking in a view of the entire city at sunset from a hill in Griffith Park. We talk about various hobo survival techniques and the rise of choco chicken. Trust me, it's a good one.
For the last international edition of the podcast, I actually hooked up with one of my good friends from back home, comedian Moshe Kasher (@moshekasher).
He's been working in Rome on Zoolander 2 for the past month, so he decided to come up to Norway to kick it with me for the last leg of my tour. And then I returned the favor by coming to Rome to hang with him for a bit!
Mosh and I go way back, so we got some interesting tales to tell...
My tour of countries full of unexpressive white people with varying degrees of English comprehension continues!!
Last week, I did shows in Latvia, Estonia and Finland before heading to Saint Petersburg, Russia, for some much needed R&R.
But before that, I was traveling around the Baltics with these guys:
Mantas Katleris, one of the biggest comedians in Lithuania, who performed in English for the very first time on this run, and Daniel Veinbergs, an Estonian comedian who turned 19 while we were on tour.
These guys were very funny and cool to hang with on the road. And, they're making history as pioneers of stand up in their respective countries.
The first leg of my 2015 European Comedy Tour is over!!
I had a blast performing throughout Sweden, and it's all because of one man: Stockholm-based comic and all-around good dude, Martin Soneby. He put together my entire Swedish run and promoted the hell out of the shows on his own podcast, to the point that that his listeners got sick of hearing my name. And his efforts paid off: we had 3 packed shows in Malmo, Gothenburg and Stockholm!
At the very end of the run, we sat down to reflect on our little tour, and talk a bit about life and comedy in Sweden.
