It’s the reboot of What’s So Funny! and there’s a new spin on things! Our host, Dave Schwensen, returns and this time he’s brought three of his friends: Kelly, Tom, and Logan. Join in as we listen to comedy albums from the 1950s, ‘60s, or ‘70s. We’ll take a look at the life of the comedian as well as the cultural relevance of the album then and now. So sit back, relax, and get ready to laugh!
Our final episode of the season features the one, the only, Shelley Berman and his album “Inside Shelley Berman!” Before becoming a comedian Shelley worked quite a few odd jobs, but he didn’t let that stop him from becoming the comedian we know of today! Today Shelley is most known for his role on Curb Your Enthusiasm but, he was one of the premiere comics of his time. He worked along side Nichols and May, was good friends with Mort Sahl, and was awarded the Grammy in 1959 for Best Comedy Performance- Spoken Word. Listen in to find out what makes Shelley Berman unstoppable!
