If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a stand up comic, or how some of your favourite comics got their start in the business, let me recommend ‘You Should Have Been Here Last Week, ‘. YSHBHLW is a weekly, hour long podcast, hosted by comedian Steve Purcell, that should give you some insight into what it’s like to be a road comic.
Yesterday afternoon, Steve and I sat down to record another episode of his show at ‘The Comedy Club on State,’ located in downtown, Madison, Wisconsin.
Steve is an eight year veteran of the business and he has a relaxed, easy going, off the cuff style that puts his guest at ease. The Comedy Club showroom provided the perfect setting for our open discussion on a wide range of topics, including how I got started, my worst gig ever, and the day that comedy died. Sept. 11th.
