The Self Help Comedy Hour with Ed Crasnick #23 Eddie Pepitone, Karen Kilgariff
The Bitter Buddha and The Bitter Jewddha,
Half Jewish, Half Sicilian, Half Jackie Gleason, Half Ekhart Tolle, and real friend Eddie Pepitone is two full people. On this show, I talked to all of him in his kitchen. And, an amazing song by the quadruple threat, Karen Kilgariff. This is song, I think had it's debut on our show a while back.

The Self Help Comedy Hour with Ed Crasnick #22 Evan Mann & Gareth Reynolds, Vanda Mikoloski, The Hard Shine Blues Band & Amy Solomon
No way to accurately decsribe this show. It was a terrific array of talent and interesting people doing cool things. Evan & Gareth, so talented, talked about their TV stuff and the process of creating shows for Comedy Central, MTV and why you never want to call a show "Failosophy." Vanda shared wide variety of experiences, near death and fully alive, combining spirituality and stand-up. Amy Solomon is a writer and studen at Princeton who is doing a project on the realtionship between mental health, depression and comedic genius-and The Hard Shine Blues Band rocked it with two great songs, they are amazing! Enjoy!
The Self Help Comedy Hour with Ed Crasnick #21 Andy Kindler, Mike Kennelly and Gary Stockdale
Do you like comedy? How about music? How about Martial Arts? This show combines all of them.
Andy Kindler is hysterically funny, and when he does a demonstartion of his skills as a third degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do (for real), its very interestinga nd entertaining also. Mike Kennelly is Andy's teacher (also mine), a facsinating person, whois a therapist, martial arts master and teaches something called appiied philosophy. Gary Stockdale is a great composer, arranger and singer/songwriter, has worked on films, tv shows and also with Penn & Teller. Gary does two songs in this show that will blow you away. A uniquely entertaining show-Enjoy!

The Self Help Comedy Hour with Ed Crasnick #18 Greg Fitzsimmons, Kevin Kataoka, Dr. Michael Solomon, Oded Gross
What can I tell you, huge show, actually somewhat of a compilation show. Had a great conversation with Greg Fitzsimmons abour life, balance, family and why there were planes circling overhead. Caught up with Kevin Kataoka in NY, as he prepped for a comedy tour with W. Kmau Bell while working on FX's Totally Biased with W. Kmau Bell. We had music by great singer songwriter Oded Gross and Dr. Michael Solomon did psychodrama with me, he is amazing, therapeutic role-play, wow! Enjoy!
