When comedian Greg Hahn takes the stage, he does so with an energetic, all-out style of physical humor, one-liners and crowd work like you've never seen before. And once he lets loose, there's no stopping him because Hahn doesn't have time for laughs, he's out to create immediate pandemonium and panic. Hahn can wear an audience out with his rapid-fire jokes and leave them holding their sides, trying to catch their breath. Greg is one of the most manic comedians to ever enter our studio, something that was only amplified when we sat him in front of a full drum set. You can hear a sample of that visit every time Chick plays his rimshot. Follow Greg on Facebook and twitter.
Mike Birbiglia is not only a popular and successful stand-up comedian, he's also starred in the one-man off-Broadway shows "Sleepwalk With Me" and "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend," is the author of the book, “Sleepwalk With Me And Other Painfully True Stories,” and wrote, starred in and directed the film Sleepwalk with Me (which was based on his one-man-show, which in turn was based on his real life experiences). The film received much critical acclaim and also won the the Best Of NEXT audience award at the Sundance Film Festival. Mike is currently back out on tour. You can follow Mike on twitter and facebook.
It's time for another exciting episode of the best joke filled, news feature hosted by a stand-up comedian named Bob Zany, The Zany Report. But the Report isn't the only thing you'll get when Bob calls in, we'll also find out where he's playing next, Bing Crosby will tell a joke, and some lucky fan will win prizes after fixing one Zany's less than successful punch lines. So you'd better tune it because it's going to be huge! In other news, Bob was recently featured in the Matt Damon film, The Informant! and is the star of the new documentary Close But No Cigar: Bob Zany which you can find here and pre-order the 2-DVD set here. Follow Bob on Facebook and twitter. Bob also has a new Podcast, "The Bob Zany Show" with Zan Aufdeerheide.
