Behind The Bits with Scott Curtis
Every week, Scott Curtis talks serious with comedians about their craft. Were they inspired by Dave Chappelle or George Carlin, Paula Poundstone or Iliza Shlesinger? How do they write their comedy sets? Which jokes work and which one’s failed? How do you find your comedic voice? Which comedy clubs are the best? We hit these topics and more every week so that you and I can learn from the professional comedians who have blazed the trail for us.
