Been a Jason Weems fan since I first saw him at Arlington Cinema & Draft House years ago. Now I’m a Dionne Joyner-Weems fan. Great episode everyone!

Behind the scenes of stand up

This show is a fresh take on stand up comedy, through the eyes of those who live them. Also love the dynamic between Laura and Angel!
