Fun listen

The structure of the podcast is great. Love that it takes questions from listeners and gives advice in some serious and not so serious ways

A must subscribe to!

Constantly and consistently funny

I love this pod for two reasons, 1. It’s upbeat, on point, and engaging, and 2. All my friends are on it.

If you’re interested in podcast that covers every corner of comedy, this is the one you need to listen to.

Keep up the good work guys.
