These descriptions are getting shorter and shorter! Because who cares! It's seriously a very good episode so just fucking listen to it!
Brent Weinbach, is one of the funniest, most original comedians performing today, and one of my oldest friends in comedy. Also, we got into a fist fight many years ago, which I mentioned in LKP Ep 18 with Al Madrigal.
Brent felt that I misrepresented him when I told that story the first time, so we sat down and set the record straight. And also we talked about other stuff. It's a good episode. Listen to it.
For my final episode out of New Orleans, I sat down with my old friend Cheryl who's from LA but has been living down here in the Big Easy for the last several years.
She's really cool. It's a good one. Trust me.
We talked about hemorrhoids and Mardi Gras.
Another hot crossover classic!!
Matt made a last minute trip down to New Orleans, and we chopped it up and partied together all weekend.
For the first half of this conversation, check out episode 162 of his podcast: The Full Charge Power Hour
Andrew Polk has been the main point of contact for visiting comics in New Orleans for the last several years. As I begin my month long residency here, I decided to sit down and speak with him about the local scene. I also found out he was homeschooled, so we talk about that for a while because it's fucking weird.
Kris Tinkle is one of my original crew of friends from when I started comedy back int he Bay. He's a hilarious comedian (check out his albums "Almost Awesome" and "Maybe I Don't Feel Like Smiling") and my roommate.
We get serious, then talk about masturbation, then get serious and then talk about masturbation again. This is a good one.
The thrilling conclusion of the epic 2 part podcast featuring the very hilarious Kaseem Bentley.
Have you are ever been walking through the NYC subway and spotted a band playing genre-defying intrumental music while wearing "Eyes Wide Shut"-esque masks? Well, chances are, that was a band called "You Bred Raptors?" I sat down with the band's core members, Bryan and Peat, and we compared and contrasted my life as a comedian with their lives as busking subway musicians.
The epic conclusion to the first 2 part episode in Louis Katz Podcast history! Another hour of me and Guy Branum sipping champagne and talking shit.
Eliza Skinner (http://elizaskinner.com/) and I take on the big issues like shitting in your pants at Disneyland.
I've been anxiously waiting to see "Mad Max: Fury Road" since I was 10 years old. I loved this series when I was a kid. So I decided to re-watch all four Mad Max movies in 24 hours and then discuss them with podcast regulars Jason & Vinh. We drank as we watched, and since there were a lot of movies, we did a lot of drinking. Hopefully not too much...
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...
Guy Branum is the very first friend I made in comedy. Mostly because he had a car and we both lived in the East Bay. He's had a very successful career writing for Chelsea Lately and Totally Biased, but this year, he finally broke through as a stand up as well. We sat down and talked about how after killing it in relative obscurity for years, he finally got people to notice his stand up. We also talk a bit about the LA and NY comedy scenes and today's backlash against "mean" and "offensive" comedy (I know, I talk about that on like every episode. Sorry.).
Enjoy, and please buy Guy's album: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/effable/id977936207
We recorded this episode on 4/20, so I had planned on talking about drugs to some extent. We ended up going way past weed to ayahuasca, a psychedelic drug known for giving users profound insights into life and existence. So yeah, things get kinda deep. And then we talk comedy a bit.
Anyway, it's a good one.
Be sure to follow all my guests, @myqkaplan, @zachsherwin and @gograntgordon
Sat down with a couple of very funny comedians, Grant Gordon (@gogratngordon) and Janelle James (@janellejcomic).
Grant and I host a weekly show together in Brooklyn known as Sack Magic. He also lived with my parents and I for two weeks this Winter.
Janelle opens for Todd Barry and Hannibal Buress on the road. She's also the very first female guest I've had, making her the Valentina Tereshkova of this podcast.
Wow, Janelle's credits look way more impressive than Grant's. He's gonna hate me for that.
Alon, a new guest to the show, joins me and Jason, my irregular West Coast co-host. Alon has a baby on the way, so that influenced a lot of our discussion. But not the part where we talk about gay porn.
This was Jason's first sober podcast. Can he still entertain without being mentally lubricated by the liquor???? There's only one way to find out!!!
I sit down with my old friend Oscar, a very talented musician who records under the name "SISTER MANTOS."
We talk about dating, queer identity, political correctness, and my all-time favorite comedy bit.
The audio quality is a little rough because we recorded this outside next to an abandoned pool near Downtown LA while eating po' boy sandwichs.
Check out Oscar's music here: http://www.sistermantos.com/
I drink a bottle of Tequila with my friends Jason and Andrew as we discuss growing up with a "'Nam Dad," and Scarface's place in the pantheon of gangster movies.
I speak with my good friend Jasper Redd (https://twitter.com/jasperredd) about our early days in comedy and the influence music had on both of us. We talk about a lot different music, so to accompany this episode here's a Spotify Playlist that includes most of the stuff we talk about.
This is the first episode of the podcast I wish I didn't have to do. But I guess comedians are supposed to have podcasts now.
Anyway, in this episode, me and three of my oldest friends, Jason, Dave, and Vinh, discuss the movie Chappie.
For a first episode of something I really didn't want to do, I think it turned out pretty good.
