HUSMilton ,

Perfect Vehicle for Jimmy Tingle!

I love this guy! Turns out he really knows how to do an interview too! This is a perfect vehicle for his style. I hope it leads to a late night talk show. I’d never miss it! God bless Jimmy Tingle!

Tingle, Jimmy ,

Loved talking to my old friend Colin Quinn about comedy, politics and the state of the nation.

I'm biased but this was a a lot of fun to record and listen to. Please give a listen and tell us what you think!
Thanks
Jimmy

Btsully ,
