Some people try hypnosis, other's try meditation, and some resort to good old fashioned pills, but Mark Malkoff had a different strategy for getting over his fear of flying, he was going to spend the entire month of June on an Airplane. From June 1 to June 30th, this writer and comedian flew on 134 AirTran flights around the country, never entering an airport and sleeping on the planes at night. In doing so, he not only set an aviation record, he also set a Guinness Book World Record. But this is nothing new for Malkoff, he's also made headlines for visiting all 171 Starbucks in Manhattan in one day and lived in an IKEA store for an entire week.
Costaki Economopoulos is a comedian, true, but he's also a football fan. Those two factors alone make him the perfect candidate to give us a comedic look back at the NFL each week with his new feature that's also been picked up by The Huffington Post and Bleacher Report. With his Greek heritage, it's not surprising that he's been described as a “joke philosopher,” and we're sure he's not the only one saying that. Costaki is also a talented joke writer who's punchlines have been heard on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, BET, and MTV. Follow Costaki on facebook and twitter.
For longer than we can remember comedian Tim Bedore has been calling in or stopping by to deliver an editorial in which he talks about whatever happens to be on his mind. These musings can range from his relationship with his daughter, to hot topics in the news, and even updates on how the animal kingdom is waging war on mankind. From the Animal Conspiracy to his daughter Claire, Tim takes us inside his mind, and with the help of a few sound effects, puts together one of our favorite features. Follow Tim on Facebook.
