#81 - Comedian Pete Correale
Ira does a casual Skype interview with one of his favorite working comedians and podcast hosts, Pete Correale.
Pete is playing The Punchline in Atlanta on New Years Eve. 3 shows: 6,8, and 10pm. Please go to Punchline.com for tickets and more info.
In addition to performing almost every weekend around the country, Pete does a weekly podcast with comedian Sebastian Maniscalco called The Pete & Sebastian Show, which is hysterical, but also serves as a great behind-the-scenes look into the lives of professional comedians (and their families). He also just released a 1-hour Comedy Special on Showtime, which can be found On-Demand as well.
Topics in this interview include:
The Pete & Sebastian Show, The Breuer Unleashed Radio Show he did for 4 years with comedian Jim Breuer on Sirius Satellite Radio, Howard Stern (and Stern on the Breuer Show), Performing on Letterman the first time, Being a recent guest on Bill Burr's podcast and Marc Maron's podcast, Pete tests a music game he has prepared for Sebastian with Ira, Pete reveals the anatomy of a new joke he's working out, 80's Rodney Dangerfield HBO Specials and Eddie Murphy comedy albums, on the elevator with Chris Robinson, and much more...
