Here’s Robin Williams Live at the Roxy (1978) in its entirety. Just absolutely incredible.
Standup Comic Adam Newman stopped by my hotel room in Montreal to share a horrible tale about a night of passion that ended in vomit and the family secret that would forever change the way he looked at his dad. Plus, another edition of a British Person Reads Your Embarrassing Stories which you can either upload at TalkOfShameShow.com/submit or email to me at TheTalkOfShameShow@gmail.com
And here’s a bunch of fun ways you can keep up with the podcast of that’s your thing (which I sincerely hope it is).
This was super fun! I was delirious and hungover and sleep-deprived, but those are the best conditions for over-sharing.
I was walking through the hotel bar where everyone was staying/drinking. Caroline Rhea (who I met earlier this year at the Great American Comedy Festival) grabbed me by the arm and pulled me over to her table. Russell Peters was sitting across from her and she goes, “Russell, have you met Adam?” He looks at me and goes, “Yea, but you look different without your glasses.” I said, “Oh, you think I’m someone else.” He goes, “You’re right, but you look familiar. How do I know you?” I said, “I lost in the first round of Last Comic Standing this year. You weren’t into it.” He said, “Oh yea, you did sports stuff, right?” “Right.” “Hey, do you know that guy Joe Zimmerman?” I said, “Yea, of course.” He goes, “THAT guy’s funny.”
If you’re going to be in Montreal for Just For Laughs this year, I’ll be taping for HBO Canada with a bunch of other funny Americans. Here’s where you can get free tickets! (I’m on the 7/26 @ 7:30 show)
Speaking of things that are sick and beautiful, Splitsider’s July Dog & Pony Show is downright putrid, and includes such geniuses as:
Adam Newman! (Comedy Central Half Hour)
Michelle Wolf! (Late Night with Seth Meyers)
Naomi Ekperigin! (Broad City)
Hugh Moore! (truTV’s Friends Of The People)
Wow! What a poster! (and show!)
