Ever been angry enough to flip a table? Dan Cummins gets that angry... just tell him you don't like to drink Roy Rogers. Once comedian, farmer and Mayor Drew Hastings joined us, the topics turned toward life in a small town, the homeless and like one kid more than another. We also got calls from Donnie Baker and Kenny Tarmac, plus the Shoe-In of the Week.
Comedian. Farmer. Mayor. Drew Hastings' trademark comedy is both hilarious and self-deprecating. His stand up is driven by his own angst and observations on the decline of America. His Farmageddon Tour deals with his misadventures of being the most unlikely farmer you'll ever meet. As the newly-elected mayor of a Midwestern city, he's an anti-authority guy in a position of authority, making him an alternative conservative. From his critically acclaimed, one-hour comedy special, to his multiple appearances on late night television, Drew has done it all.. His Follow Drew on facebook and twitter. Buy his new "Farmageddon" special on Amazon or iTunes.
Though Dan Cummins' first time on stage was less than spectacular and included a number of props, a wig and a loss of self-respect, he still discovered his true calling. Fortunately for him (and for those that go to his shows) his comedy act has evolved into one that places more emphasis on sarcasm, dark intellect and making people laugh and less on props. This has helped Dan become a favorite in comedy clubs and college campuses across the country. He's also become a regular on television including appearances on "Live at Gotham," "Comedy Central Presents," "The Late, Late Show" and "Last Comic Standing." Follow Dan on Twitter and Facebook
