Comedian and all-around sweetheart Chris Garcia is this week’s guest. He and Dave talk about what it’s like wanting desperately to belong and growing up out of place. Chris shares a bunch of adorable/horrifying stories on the subject and Dave bashes teachers. HE DIDN’T MEAN TO.
This week I sit down with comedian Kris Tinkle, originally from California now in New York. We discuss that transition, going through a break up “like a warrior”, working together with Dave Attell, and comedian Christian Reyes drops in and talks Street Justice.

And if you don’t like that joke, then please don’t ever listen to the song “It’s Ain’t No Fun (If The Homies Can’t Have None)” by Snoop Dogg, because that song is just that joke, but for serious.”—Ron Chapman @ Stork Club/Storking Comedy (Full Set: Here @ 0:20) [Paraphrase]

“I good comedian would go, “Alright, crowd work”, but I’ve never done that before in my life, so I’m just going to gloss over it, pretend it didn’t happen.”—Dominick Rolandelli on a shark-obsessed heckler @ Dirty Trix Saloon [Paraphrase]
