My Thoughts: My favorite JRE episodes are the ones with comedians. I had heard of this guy but aside from his appearance on Ari Shaffir’s This is Not Happening Comedy Central webshow, I had never heard him before. It was an interesting conversation that covered a lot of well-worn territory for us listeners, such as starting out in comedy. You could tell the two of them weren’t good friends, as Joe seemed to challenge Jay on a lot of the things he was talking about.
