Howdy-doo! It’s me. Marc
Hershon, your host and evangelist for Epi108 of Succotash,
the Comedy Podcast Podcast.
This particular ‘sode is
an edition of Succotash Chats, which means we have
precious little in the way of comedy podcast clips — I won’t lie,
there is a bit of clippage in the show — but we’re mostly looking
at a thick n’ meaty interview headed your way with none other than
David Feldman — comedian, writer, and host of
We put this interview in the can a couple of weeks ago, via Skype, as David has been habitating in New York City while he works on The Jack & Triumph Show for Adult Swim. I’ve known David since he arrived in San Francisco from New York to pursue his standup comedy career, back in the mid-1980s, and I’ve been meaning to get him on the show for sometime but he’s mostly been in LA while I’ve mostly been in SF and our paths haven’t crossed all that often.
He's been doing things
like writing on TV shows and for award shows. It's a pleasure to
have him as this episode's special guest.
We’ve got some other bits
of show to share with you, too. We’ve got a Boozin’ With
Bill segment, in which our announcer, Bill
Haywatt, mixes up "The Roman Candle", a new libation with
me at the Studio P wet bar.
We also have a double
dose of our Burst O’ Durst, with political comedian and
social commentarian Will Durst. He sounds off about
Indiana's "religious freedom act" in the first pass, and then
offers some simple solutions for a few big problems we face today
in the second.
There’s a classic
Henderson’s Pants commercial and we’ll dip into the Tweetsack to
sniff your cards and letters, emails and
BTW, if you’d like to
hear me get interviewed, along with our esteemed booth
announcer, Bill Heywatt, listen no further than Episode 8 of
Planet podcast. It’s hosted by our pal, Davian
Dent, over in the UK. Matt
Bubbles was on there from England hanging out, too, and
the four of us had a smashing good time. (Since it’s got ME on it,
I figure I can play a clip, even though this is officially a
Succotash Chats episode.
If you've had a chance to
download or stream our show, I wonder if you might do us a favor?
