Livia Scott is not only a freakishly funny and compassionate person, who I was stoked to get to spend an afternoon in Prospect Park with, she also offers a compelling theory about my childhood that helped me find my inner 2nd-grader’s Walter White.She explains the origins of her body suit and why she is so proud of a particular song she wrote, one that confirms all my worst fears about my genitals. Listen as we “embarrass our way to the right hand of God.” And go see Livia in her shiny suit on the Livia Scott Sketch Program at the UCB Chelsea this Wednesday, November 11, at 9:30Post Views: 1,709
By WTA — 2 years agoTim Duffy, comedian, writer guy for Comedy Central, takes Andy along on his daily commute from Staten Island into the city.It’s an everyday trip Tim’s been taking for years, but Andy still finds it exotic, which makes him feel a little like a hayseed. Also, on this Valentine’s episode, Andy gets into the thick of it re: what it means to be in love at 41 and how he’s worried he’ll have to start closing the kitchen cabinet doors when he’s finally living with someone for the first time.

By WTA — 6 years agoIt’s impossible to tell the story of how I know comedian and psychologist Marc Gerber without getting into a host of sordid and vulnerable-making trauma from my past. He offered some perspective back in June that changed my life and comedy.
Gerber is an atypical hybrid of a professionally funny and employably empathetic person. He and I met when I performed on a show at the PIT called Relationshit where he served as on stage therapist for a story I told about a piece of material about my own childhood sexual abuse. In this episode I play the recording of that performance along with another version I did more recently at a recovery show in New Jersey. The revision of this bit over time is the best example I have of how my perpetual over-disclosure has unintentionally helped saved my life.
He also opens up about his own struggles and offers a much needed and practical solution for quelling loneliness, a call to 1-800-Contacts.
Check out his weekly show at Comic Strip Live on Mondays called Three Day Weekend.Post Views: 1,749
