Episode 7 – Ben O’Brien (Reverse Video Game)

hzw7My guest this week is Ben O’Brien, the hilarious comedian. He’s the main man behind Wham City Comedy. We go back to 2004, when I first started playing shows with his then-band, Nuclear Power Pants.

He gave me a very articulate breakdown of how the standup comedian game is different than being a musician, an artist or anything else. He breaks down how rough tours and shitty open-mic nights have made him into a more solid comedian. He gave me the inside scoop on Live Forever As You Are Now, his collaboration with Alan Resnick, which aired on Adult Swim.
