  • Chris Titus & Mark Pitta

    · 03:57:21 · David Feldman Show

    Jeremiah Tower & Azhar Usman. David goes insane demanding to know why Ann Coulter won't go away? Three of the biggest names ever to come out of my hometown, San Francisco: Comedian Christopher Titus, Comedian Mark Pita, and, this is huge, Chef Jeremiah Tower, plus my new friend, one of Dave Chappelle’s favorite opening acts, and he’s writing for tomorrow night’s White House Correspondents Dinner, Comedian, Lawyer, Husband, Father, Son and Holy Ghost Azhar Usman. Christopher Titus is working on his eighth comedy special. Mark Pita recalls the early days of San Francisco comedy scene, his first Carson shot, and what it's like to hang with your comedy heroes. Jeremiah Tower! If you know anything about food this is big, and if you don’t know anything about food you need to know who Jeremiah Tower is. It all starts with Jeremiah Tower. Before Mario Batali, before Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry, before Wolfgang Puck there was Jeremiah Tower who created the idea of a celebrity chef, he created not only California cuisine, he created American cuisine, he created farm to table he created the whole idea of being a locavore. He’s on the show today! Jeremiah Tower is responsible for Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California and Chez Panisse is responsible for the whole idea of locally sourced food. I know. It sounds crazy, but Jeremiah Tower in the late 70s and early 80s said, "To hell with French cooking, to hell with flying in fish from Chile, let’s cook with what’s right in front of us." You take that for granted, but until Jeremiah Tower nobody knew what fresh food tasted like. There’s a new documentary out called the Last magnificent, and it’s the story of how Jeremiah Tower didn’t just revolutionize modern dining, he created it. Martha Stewart, Mario Batali and Anthony Bourdaine are in this documentary, The Last Magnificent, it’s produced by Anthony Bourdaine, and the Last Magnificent is incredible, you’ll never look at food the same way again. So much of what we take for granted started with Jeremiah Tower in the early 80s, he went on to create Stars restaurant in San Francisco, and then, he disappeared. Fell of the face of the earth. Walked away from it all, left at the top of his game. Only to return two years ago to run Tavern on The Green in New York, as well as serve as the subject of this fantastic documentary The Last Magnificent. I would put this up there with Jiro Dreams of Sushi, that great 2011 documentary covering Jiro Ono the 85-year-old Japanese sushi master who runs a hole in the wall that Michelin gives three stars. So proud to have Jeremiah Tower on the show today. Christopher Titus has done seven comedy specials.  Never happy with doing what's been done before, Titus makes sure every show has a specific theme, while simultaneously taking the audience on a wild ride of laughter.  He is currently touring with his newest and eighth show, "AMERICA… REALLY?," in which he is half-assed running for President in 2017. After rave reviews of “Norman Rockwell is Bleeding,” Titus followed it up 2 years later with his rant on 9-11 and the world coming apart in “The 5th Annual End of the World Tour.” This 90-minute piece once again shows how Christopher is a comic who either suffers from A.D.D., or is an angry white trash maniac. After his second show, all hell broke loose in Titus’ life.  A bad divorce and an amazing new relationship brought his third 90-minute show to life. “Love is Evol" goes through the ups and downs of love and divorce in a way that no comic has before.  If you’ve ever been in love and had your heart ripped out, this show will heal you... and steel you for the future. Never holding back, Christopher Titus was able to do three ninety-minute shows in only five years.  Most comics would take a break and recharge, but instead, Titus dropped “NEVERLUTION” in 2011.  Neverlution takes on the entire country and its complacency with everything from terrorism and politics, to child-rearing and technology.  Titus again shows he is up to more than just stand-up comedy.Between 2004 and 2011, Titus released six hours of comedy.  Now what?  “VOICE IN MY HEAD” is what.  Titus turns his rage and hilarity inward, and kicks his own ass with this special about every mistake he has made in his life, including getting his TV show cancelled. The disc ends with an epic 28-minute piece about meeting Bruce Springsteen and what an idiot Titus continued to be in front of “The Boss." Only one year later, Titus released “Angry Pursuit of Happiness.”  One of his best specials, Titus takes the audience on a ride through life.  From the bit, “Arm the Children,” to His Dad’s ED problem, to one of his most epic pieces, “Here’s How Life Goes,” you will laugh your ass off while reconsidering your own life choices. In “BORN WITH A DEFECT,” Titus tackles one of his toughest subjects to date-- kids.  In an hour and forty minutes, Titus deconstructs the love of children and proves that they really don’t care about us at all. He also gives parenting advice and tells stories that would make a child therapist get a restraining order. As he says in the show, “If you are a parent this show is therapy, if you don’t have kids it’s 90 minutes of birth control.”   If you are counting, that’s seven specials in only 12 years. Titus has done the work, paid his dues and has the history to show that he is one of the best comics working today.  Not happy to just write bit after unrelated bit, Titus always brings a cohesive, complete show. Titus’ comedy is part rant, part confession, part therapy, but ALWAYS funny.  His reputation is one of a hard, funny comic who takes no prisoners and gives the audience everything he has, in every show he does. He has tackled the world, relationships, families, the human race and most of all, himself. Mark’s career flourished in LA, first, fulfilling his dream of appearing on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson then subsequent appearances with Jay Leno. Mark landed a job as host of Totally Hidden Video for the FOX network, playing different characters in hidden camera situations and then hosting Friday Night Videos for NBC. Mark has made guest appearances on Mad About You and Third Rock from the Sun. For Comedy Central Mark has appeared on Premium Blend; The A-List; Dr. Katz; and Make Me Laugh. Mark wrote and starred in his own sitcom for NBC but the pilot wasn’t chosen for the fall season. Head of NBC, Warren Littlefield picked a show called “Union Square” instead. It lasted three episodes. Mark predicts that his show would have lasted at least four. When the word came down that the project wasn’t a go Mark magically received a call from the top rated morning show in the San Francisco Bay Area to be the roving entertainment reporter/host. For five years Mark brought his unique comic expertise to the man on street format and enjoyed the original approach to interviewing newsmakers, movie stars and everyday folk. In 1997 Mark achieved the comedy version of the hat trick when, during a show, he made a women (name withheld) laugh so hard she wet her pants, cried, and liquid came out of her nose. There is no higher honor. A favorite on the comedy club; college; and corporate circuit, Mark has also opened for Chris Issak, Celene Dion, Vanessa Williams, Paul Anka, Kenny Rogers, Olivia Newton John, Smokey Robinson, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Rick Springfield. The prestigious ELAN AWARDS has chosen Mark as Master of Ceremonies five times, and Anthony Robbins has employed Mark to liven up his financial seminars. Every Tuesday in Mill Valley, California, Mark runs a comedy showcase at the 142 Throckmorton Theatre new comics a chance to develop. Veterans like Dana Carvey, Robin Williams, and Richard Lewis have also stopped by. AZHAR USMAN is a standup comedian, actor, writer, playwright, and producer. He is one of the hottest standup comics based in Chicago; CNN called him "America's Funniest Muslim," and Georgetown University identified him as "one of the 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World."

Jeff’s other roast victims include Justin Bieber, James Franco, Charlie Sheen, James Carville and Donald Trump (twice).

  • Meet the First Family...of Podcasting

    · 00:26:33 · Death, Sex & Money

    Scott Aukerman and Kulap Vilaysack are the podcasting world’s ultimate power couple, but they couldn’t have come from more different backgrounds. When Scott was a musical theater-loving teenager in Orange County, California, Kulap was washing dishes in the restaurant run by her Laotian immigrant parents, where she'd worked since she was a little kid. Then she went away to college—responsibly running away, she says—and met Scott at a taping of a comedy TV show he wrote for. She was just 18. It took a year for them to start dating, but they’ve (basically) been together ever since. And Kulap’s starting to tell her story through both her podcast, "Who Charted?", and her upcoming documentary, Origin Story. It's harder to get to know Scott. If you’ve ever listened to his "Comedy Bang! Bang!" podcast—or watched the IFC show of the same name—you really just know the character he plays. In this episode, I spoke with them about Kulap’s family secrets, Scott's family roots, and what plans they have for their future family together. INTERVIEW HIGHLIGHTS How Kulap found out that the man who raised her wasn’t her biological father: K: I always, I just preferred my dad, I thought I looked like my dad, I got along better with my dad. And [my parents] got in another horrible fight, I defended him, she looked at me and said, Why are you defending him, he’s not your real dad. The trailer for Kulap's documentary Origin Story: Couples need their own interests: S: Yeah I think when I first met Kulap, she seemed like a really interesting person with different interests, and that’s what I really liked about her. And then slowly she seemed to just kind of assimilate into my life and kind of not want to do much more than whatever I was doing. I think I read when I was younger that the best relationships are ones where the two people have really interesting separate things going on and then when they meet at the end of the day they can talk about them and be excited to see each other. I think we broke up because that wasn’t happening at the time. Thinking about parenthood: K: How do I think about motherhood?  I think about it, naturally, in terms of my own upbringing, and wanting to do better. I think about ... I think about Christmases, that’s what I think about. I think about firsts, and stuff. S: I think Kulap has always been very worried about how she’ll act with our kids. And trying to make sure that she doesn’t do what her mother did with her. I think Kulap’s gonna be a great mom. You can read a full transcript of our interview, and hear both the Comedy Bang! Bang! and Who Charted? podcasts on the Earwolf Podcast Network, and donate to the Indiegogo campaign for Kulap's documentary Origin Story. And speaking of Christmas traditions, here's Zach Galifianakis wearing a santa suit on Scott's IFC show Comedy Bang! Bang!:

  • Marc Maron & Randy Bryce

    · 04:02:09 · David Feldman Show

    Howie Klein, Professor Corey Brettschneider and Dr. Jay Sutay. Marc Maron stars in the new critically acclaimed Netflix series "Glow." Randy "Iron Stache" Bryce is running for Wisconsin's first congressional district intent on defeating Speaker Paul Ryan. Howie Klein on Randy Bryce and the fight for Medicare For All. Professor Corey Brettschneider explains how Donald Trump Junior violated campaign finance law by taking that meeting last year with those Russians. Marc is the author of two books: The Jerusalem Syndrome: My Life as a Reluctant Messiah, based on his solo show and is available for purchase on Amazon.com, and a collection of essays titled Attempting Normal, which was released by Spiegel and Grau in 2013. His first four albums, Not Sold Out, Tickets Still Available, Final Engagement, and This Has To Be Funny are comedy classics. Marc released his stand-up special Thinky Pain on Netflixin 2013 and as an album in 2014.  His most recent special, More Later, premiered on Epix in December 2015 and is also available on Hulu and Amazon Prime. Randy Bryce is a U.S. Army veteran, cancer survivor, and union ironworker. He joined the race for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District because his values are our neighbors’ values, and Washington has gotten way off track. Randy was raised in southeastern Wisconsin, and went to public schools. After graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, and was posted to Honduras, where he earned the Army Achievement Medal. Randy’s father was a police officer, and his mother worked in a doctor’s office. His brother is also a police officer, and his sister is a public school teacher. After returning stateside, Randy was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He didn’t believe he could ever have children, and now calls his only son Ben, his “miracle child.” Ben is a public school student like his dad was. Randy found his way to an apprenticeship as an iron worker, and has now been helping to build America for more than 20 years.

He is currently also a visiting professor at the University of Chicago Law School. Brettschneider was a visiting professor at Fordham Law School, a Rockefeller faculty fellow at the Princeton University Center for Human Values, a visiting associate professor at Harvard Law School, and a faculty fellow at Harvard's Safra Center for Ethics.

How Democracies Can Protect Expression and Promote Equality (Princeton University Press, 2012) and Democratic Rights: The Substance of Self-Government (Princeton University Press, 2007). These books have been the subject of several journal symposia, including one most recently published in the Brooklyn Law Review. Brettschneider is also the author of a casebook, Constitutional Law and American Democracy: Cases and Readings (Aspen Publishers/Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, 2011). His articles include "Sovereign and State: A Democratic Theory of Sovereign Immunity," forthcoming in Texas Law Review; "Value Democracy as the Basis for Viewpoint Neutrality," in Northwestern Law Review (2013); "A Transformative Theory of Religious Freedom," in Political Theory (2010); "When the State Speaks, What Should it Say? Democratic Persuasion and the Freedom of Expression," in Perspectives on Politics (2010); and "The Politics of the Personal: A Liberal Approach," in the American Political Science Review (2007). Dr. Jay Sutay, the self-proclaimed “Hardest Working Pediatrician in Comedy”, is a frustrated pediatrician from South Windsor, CT, who brings his tales from the exam rooms, his experience working with kids and their parents, as well as his own tribulations as the father of two daughters to his stand up comedy. His cutting and sometimes incisive commentary about society, parenting and raising kids, has left audiences laughing.   Dr. Jay Sutay began doing stand up comedy in 1983 while attending Fairfield University. He was a regular at Open Mic Night at the Treehouse Comedy Club when it was still located in the basement of the New England Motor Lodge in Westport. While in college, Jay had narrowed his career choices to two. Medicine or Stand up Comedy. A chance encounter with comedian, Jay Leno, on October 31, 1983 sealed Jay’s career path. Leno’s advice was to go to medical school and become a doctor. Insisting that after medical training, at the very least, Jay would have a job. Sage advice. Comedy offers no guarantees.   After graduating from F.U. in 1985, Jay took a year off to mull over his options. Realizing that pizza making by day, and stand up comedy by night was probably not the best use of his college education, medical school seemed the likely option. Jay completed his medical school training at The University of Connecticut School of Medicine, and delivered the valedictory address at his graduation in 1990 (clearly selected as the speaker not because he was the top student in the class, but because he was the funniest). After completing his residency in Pediatrics at Hartford Hospital, he has been in private pediatrics practice in South Windsor, CT since 1993. He has been named a Connecticut Top Doc by Connecticut Magazine each year since 2006. Dr. Sutay is Board certified in Pediatrics, but has no documentation that he is a comic, or for that matter, funny.   After 20 years away from comedy, Dr. Sutay resurrected his long dormant stand up act in December 2006 by taking the stage at Hartford’s Brew Ha Ha Comedy Club. According to those in attendance, he did not suck. Since that night, Dr. Jay has performed at clubs throughout the northeast, and clubs and casinos as far away as Nevada, California, and the Bahamas. Dr. Jay was a finalist in the Pro Division of both the 2012 Funniest Comic in New England Contest, and the 2014 Funniest Comic on the East Coast Contest held at Mohegan Sun Casino. He was named one of Hartford’s Best Local Comics in the Hartford Courant’s CT Now 2015 Reader’s Poll.  Dr. Jay was a regular contributor to The Miserable Men Show on Sirius/XM Radio, and can be heard monthly on “The Dad Podcast”. Dr. Sutay has consistently been named a “Top Doc” in Pediatrics by Connecticut Magazine. In addition, he has performed his stand up comedy for medical and pharmaceutical groups, and at many charity benefits including: Golf Fore the Kids, Autism Speaks, Cherish the Children Foundation, Crayons for Cancer, Griffin’s Friends, Stand Up 2 Cancer, The Leukemia Lymphoma Society, The Alzheimer’s Association, The Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, and Stand Up to CF.

  • Barry Crimmins & Jimmy Pardo

    · 04:38:26 · David Feldman Show

    Rhonda Hansome and Tom Ryan plus Professor Corey Brettschneider. Today's show covers Boston's comedy scene, the Catholic Church, Matt Drudge, and Trump's Travel Ban. Barry Crimmins is one of American history’s greatest political satirists. Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait directed a documentary about Barry, it’s called Call Me Lucky and you can download it on all the streaming services. Louis CK just directed Barry’s new standup special it’s called Barry Crimmins: Whatever Threatens You and you can stream it over at www.LouieCK.net. This is what Louis says about Barry, “When I started out in the clubs in Boston, Barry was one of the Titans. One of the great comics of the time and he was singularly responsible for fostering a massive standup comedy scene in Boston that begat some of the best comedians of the last 35 years.Most importantly, Barry is hilarious and brilliant. A lot of comedians fall into categories or clusters but I've never seen what Barry does repeated anywhere. He has an approach to American life, American leadership and the people here and where we have been and where we are headed and why we do what we do that just blows me away. I think that his comedic voice is essential. That's why I made his special.” Barry is also author of Never Shake Hands With A War Criminal.

  • Don Ward

    · 01:47:32 · Tom Rhodes Radio Smart Camp

    This episode was recorded in London. Very often in interviews I have said that getting in with London was the key to me getting in with all of these world wide comedy circuits, specifically me getting in with the Comedy Store. My guest today is Don Ward, the owner of the Comedy Store. Since its opening in 1979 it has single handedly changed the British comedy scene from tired old pub comedians doing Mother in law jokes to the champions league of powerful original comedy that it is today. It is now an established institution of British comedy because every British comedy legend of the past 30 years has performed there. Don Ward is the visionary who made this work and who has witnessed the development and rise of these now household names, French & Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous), Eddie Izzard, Ben Elton, Jimmy Carr, Harry Hill and on and on. The first time I ever did a set at the Comedy Store was in 1994. Then again in 1998 which led to me playing there regularly in 1999. In 2000 the Comedy Store started managing me for Europe while I lived in Amsterdam. You could say I had life by the balls back then and I was most certainly spoiled by being under the loving umbrella of the Comedy Store. Don Ward always treated me like a king and I always enjoyed speaking with him about comedy. I love and respect the man dearly. I love him like a relative in fact. Then I fucked up.... I've been working on writing a book the past few years and I will go into more details there because in the story of my life Don Ward and the Comedy Store is an important chapter. The truth of the matter was that I was partying too much in London after shows and I frightened myself enough to decided to take a break on the place for a while when I moved back to the US in 2004.  I should have communicated with Don better about what was going on in my life. I owed him that. I owed him the respect her deserves so I wish I had been more honest with him. Needless to say feelings got hurt and it took me many years to mop up the mess that I had made.  I missed London and all my friends there so I just started going back a few years ago. One of my main reasons to go back was to set things right with Don Ward and apologize to him for me being such a schmuck. Last year when I was in London I went into Don's office and had the heart to heart talk with him. I told him since my Dad and my sister died I now see that the most important thing in life is the relationships you have with people. I told him how important he is to me, how I appreciated him treating me like a king and that I was ashamed and sorry over how I had disappeared on him. He could have rightfully told me to fuck off. Thankfully he welcomed me back to the Comedy Store and told me how that is all water under the bridge now.  This episode is very important to me because it was recorded between shows on Saturday February 22, 2014, the first weekend I have performed there in ten years. This episode is the end of a circle that took me ten years to get around to the other side of because of my mistake. Never turn your back on the people who give you love and respect.  Don Ward is a living legend in the world of comedy because he has seen it all and presented the greatest comedians the world has every known. One day the British government will put a historical marker in front of the Comedy Store but until then we have the wealth of knowledge living in the museum of Don's mind.  This episode is very important to me because it is with someone I love and respect and that was crucial to my development as a world wide performer. It is my pleasure to present to you now, the one and only Don Ward.

  • Comics Tamer Kattan & Tom McCaffrey

    · 04:14:17 · David Feldman Show

    Kathy Griffin needs to apologize for apologizing. Donald Trump said he was pulling out of the Paris Climate accords because "the treaty is bad for the economy." Know what else is bad for the economy? The polar ice caps melting, you brain dead Homunculus. Today we talk Trump, the mortal threat to our planet, with Comic Tamer Kattan, David's hero Burt Ross, Constitutional Law Professor Corey Brettschneider and Comic Tom McCaffrey. Tamer began his comedy career in Los Angeles and New York, but very quickly began to tour internationally. His over-seas experiences include tours for the troops in Afghanistan, performing at the American University in Cairo (during the Egyptian revolution) and the Edinburgh fringe in Scotland, where he received three 4 star reviews from international press. Towards the end of 2013, he moved to London for 1 year (following the path of his two biggest comedic influences, Patrice O’Neal and Bill Hicks). Tamer was most recently featured on Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity event with Todd Glass and Hannibal Buress, won the 2015 World Series of Comedy and has TV & Radio credits on BBC and SkyTV in the UK as well as in the U.S. on Fox, HULU, HGTV & truTV. Burt Ross is the second greatest living American right after Ralph Nader.   Professor Corey Brettschneider is the author of When The State Speaks.   Comic Tom McCaffrey was born and raised in Manhattan.

  • Lewis Black & Brian Stack

    · 03:46:22 · David Feldman Show

    It's Black and Stack! Since we all know who Lewis is, let's start with Brian Stack. Brian is a comedy writer and performer who spent nearly 20 years creating some of the most memorable characters from Conan's television shows. Remember Kilty McBagpipes? Hannigan the Traveling Salesman? Artie Kendall the Ghost Crooner? Sure you do. The list goes on and on. Now you know him from Stephen Colbert's CBS show where Brian, among other things, is Cartoon Trump. Brian is considered one of the funniest comedy writers and performers in the history of television. OK, let's get back to Black. Lewis Black. Where to begin? How about where to see him? Lewis is playing the Borgata in Atlantic City March 10-11. March 16 he's at the Historic Elsinore Theater in Salem, Oregon. March 17 he's at the Mount Baker Theater in Bellingham, Washington. On March 18 he's at the Pantages Theater in Tacoma, Washington. For all of Lewis Black's tour dates please visit www.LewisBlack.com. On today's show Lewis talks about how his background in theater shaped his approach to standup. He describes his childhood and schooling and where his rage comes from. We also examine his moral compass and why he feels obligated to speak truth to power no matter what the consequences. Brian Stack talks about some of his happiest moments working with Conan and how he gets into character.  Receiving critical acclaim as a stand-up, actor and author, Lewis Black has performed for audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and the United States. In 2012, he performed eight sell-out shows at Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway.  Back in Black is one of the most popular and longest-running segments on the Daily Show show for both the Jon Stewart era, and now The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Black has also taped four specials for the “Comedy Central Presents” series, co-created “Last Laugh with Lewis Black” and presided over “Lewis Black’s The Root of All Evil.” His popular appearances on Comedy Central helped to win him Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards in 2001. Increased exposure from “The Daily Show” generated a record deal with Stand Up! Records. His first CD, “The White Album,” was released in 2000 to critical acclaim. Black followed with eight more—six under the Comedy Central Records label. He has received five Grammy® nominations and two wins for his work. The first nomination came in 2006 for “Luther Burbank Performing Arts Center Blues,” the second in 2009 for “Anticipation.” In 2007 he won the Grammy for Best Comedy Album for “The Carnegie Hall Performance,” and again in 2011 for “Stark Raving Black.” His 2012 release, “In God We Rust” (Comedy Central Records) was also nominated for a Grammy.   Black has filmed two specials for HBO, including “Black On Broadway” and “Red, White and Screwed.” The latter was nominated for an Emmy® in 2007. He had a regular feature for two seasons on “Inside the NFL” (for which he earned a Sports Emmy) and in 2006, he was asked to participate in “Comic Relief.” In 2009 Lewis filmed his first feature length concert film, “Stark Raving Black,” at the Fillmore Theatre in Detroit. The film had a limited run in theaters across the U.S. and Canada in the summer of 2010. At the end of the theater run, premium movie channel EpixHD picked up the film for its channel, along with the accompanying documentary, “Basic Black.” Both are aired regularly and can be found in the EpixHD on-demand queue. In 2011, he produced his second full-length concert, “In God We Rust,” which also airs on EpixHD. In August 2013, Black recorded his ninth stand-up special “Old Yeller: Live At The Borgata.” In 2015, Black joined the cast of Madoff (ABC mini series). Black portrays Ezra Merkin, who, after investing with Madoff and receiving great returns, brought many famous and well-to-do Jewish clients, including Elie Weisel and The Hadassah Organization, to Bernie’s fold. Black has appeared on “Larry King Live,” “Piers Morgan Tonight,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Conan O’ Brian” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” Black has also had numerous appearances on CNN and MSNBC and has occasionally done the weather with Al Roker. In the midst of a rigorous touring schedule, regular TV appearances and movie roles, Black has written three best-selling books: “Nothing’s Sacred” (Simon and Schuster, 2005), “Me of Little Faith” (Riverhead Books, 2008) and “I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas” (Riverhead Books, 2010). All garnered critical praise as well commercial success and spent numerous weeks on the New York Times best sellers list. Black has penned more than 40 plays, many of which have been produced around the country. “The Deal,” a dark comedy about business, was made into a short film in 1998 and picked up by the Sundance Channel. In 2011, his play “One Slight Hitch” was produced at the Williamstown Theatre Festival and then again in 2012 at both the ACT Theatre in Seattle and The George Street Theatre in New Brunswick. Among Brian Stack's most popular recurring characters: James Sinclair St. Wallins, Audiencey Awards Fashion Correspondent. Brian LaFontaine, Singer on "Basic Cable Name That Tune". Conan frequently expresses his contempt for this character, making comments such as "Hate that guy" or "Easily my least favorite person". Voice of Minty the Candycane Singer, sings the theme song for "Minty the Candycane Who Briefly Fell On The Ground" (played by Brian McCann) every Christmas. Joe Galliano, John Galliano's 'brother' who Conan interviews, generally in response to comments made by John Galliano. Joe tries to defend his brother while changing into ridiculous hats every time the camera switches back to Conan. Wiki Bear, Stack provides the voice of 2014 recurring character "Wiki Bear", a teddy bear who has a vast knowledge of very disturbing facts.   Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
