Corey and Joel are live from the 1st annual Detroit International Comedy Festival at Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle on this special show. The guys sit down with all the stars of the show, like headliner Mike Green. Mike details his 22-year rise to stardom and the four wives it took to get him there. He describes being the subject of a new documentary, the genesis of his material and how he tries not to sound like Dane Cook. Then you’ll meet relative newcomer Dave Landau, who’s made appearances on Comedy Central and Last Comic Standing. Even with his success, Dave still has to take 3AM flight to his Carribean honeymoon. What’s the itenerary Detroit to Nassau via Stockholm? Dave’s a good sport and a good comic. We also catch up with performers and old friends Keith Ruff, Bill Hildebrandt and Bill Bushart. Find who got banned from a club and why, who hated their Festival set and who won’t allow Joel back at his house for a party. Also, club owner and comedy legend Mark Ridley stops by, a check bounces (not Mark’s!) and the best Jay Leno and Kevin Eubanks impressions – ever.

In this special episode, recorded live from Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle in Royal Oak, MI, Corey and Joel finally get a face-to-face meeting with Last Comic Standing winner John Heffron. The guys had been critical of John’s act in the past (or downright mean, depending on your perspective), so it’s a potentially volatile interview. It’s actually quite cordial as Mark Ridley plays peacemaker, but eventually John recounts every insult the hosts had ever said about him and the feathers fly. Will they kiss and make-up or agree to disagree. Also, comic Jesse Popp recounts being a contestant on “Who Wants to Be a Millionare?”. Is he mega-rich or still broke? Is Regis a douche bag? Listen to find out. Plus a chat with Connie Ettinger, a patron passes out and comedy’s history through headshots.
