So good!!

You should go out of your way to listen to this podcast!!!!! Guests: top notch | host: pitch perfect
!! Also I will caution every viewer, if you couldn’t make it out from the title, these are not Oscar nom nom noms.

Hilarious and educational

So many people wonder how comedians “made it” and this podcast tells the often outlandish and hilarious ways of how comedians started in this society. Every story is unique but there’s some really cool common themes along with very memorable stories. Brooks keeps his guests energy up and is just as entertaining as his guests. A must subscribe!!!
