    Superhero Fantasy Draft 2018 live from NY Comic Con - #127

    For the third year in a row we're back at NY Comic Con for The Superhero Fantasy Draft. Four comedians go head-to-head in a fantasy football style draft to pick their Superhero fantasy team. This year Addie Weyrich, Derek Gaines, Greg Stone, and Monroe Martin square off, building their teams as they trash talk each other, steal picks, and battle it out for audience approval who ultimately decides who the winner is.

    Superhero Fantasy Draft 2017 at NY Comic Con

    We returned to NY Comic Con this year for another Superhero Fantasy Draft. Comedians Monroe Martin (Last Comic Standing), Jared Freid (JTrain Podcast, Adrift), Anthony DeVito (People Talking Sports, Comedy Central Half Hour) and Luis J. Gomez (Legion of Skanks, Real Ass Podcast) all gathered with us in room 1A21 of the Javits Center to slug it out and pick, debate, (and probably yell) about comic book heroes that they want on their team. In the end, only one comedian was victorious and the live audience selected him.

    Joe Sib is nowhere near the top - #124

    Joe Sib is nowhere near the top - #124

    Joe Sib wears a lot of hats, he's the former lead singer of the punk rock band WAX, he's the co-founder of the record label, SideOneDummy, and he's also been working on his stand-up comedy career for the last decade or so. Sib just released his debut album, "Nowhere Near The Top" on 800 LB Gorilla records and he sits down with Matt to talk about the trip to get to that first album, how his comedy has evolved, and he even tosses in a few good stories about a The Ramones, Bad Religion, and a semi-feud he had with the band Weezer, one that Weezer was unaware they were in.

    Costaki Economopoulos and Aaron Hodges are lucky dogs - #122

    Costaki Economopoulos and Aaron Hodges are lucky dogs - #122

    Comedian Costaki Economopoulos and former SiriusXM comedy jock Aaron Hodges drop in on Matt to talk about Costaki's new comedy album and Aaron's new comedy record label. How are they related? Costaki will serve as the label's first release. It's a move that makes an incredible amount of sense because this duo are old friends and podcasting buddies, co-hosting the Quick Snaps podcast where they talk about football and bust comedy chops. It's a fun hour of three guys having a great conversation about everything from the Glass-Stegall act, sports, wives, and the life of comedy. Don't miss this one!
