The Uncommon Comedy Podcast

This episode is MUST listen! Ritch Shydner has done it all in the world of comedy: Stand-Up, TV appearances, Sitcoms, Movies, Books, Comedy Writing. We find out about starting comedy in 1977 before it was a big deal, hear a great story about being the opening act for the punk rock band, "The Ramones" (Hint: it didn't go well). We talk about the history of stand-up comedy and who was the first stand-up comedian - it's probably not who you think! We also discuss about writing for sitcoms. All of that plus so much insight into stand-up you can't miss! We also discuss the Facial Paralysis and Bell's Palsy Foundation.
