It’s about 3am in New York City a few nights before Paul makes his debut on “The Late Show with David Letterman.” After running a few sets, Paul meets up with Ari Shaffir at The Stand Comedy Club, and they walk around the East Village eating pizza and cookies. Now back at Ari’s apartment the two discuss Ari’s recent tour of China, his TV show on Comedy Central and 1 hour TV special. Paul also talks about the process of getting bumped and his return trip to NYC to be on the David Letterman Show. Things are going great for them both but talking about that wouldn’t be a fun podcast. Ari complains about Verizon, and they both complain about how hard it was to get to where they are in comedy. In the words of Joe Walsh,”I can’t complain but sometimes I still do.” No sports talk this episode, sorry.
Ari’s storytelling show “This Is Not Happening” will be a TV show on Comedy Central this fall.
