The Sweetness, Episode 29: Show Notes
After lots of stand-up talk on previous episodes of the podcast, the Sweetness welcomes its first stand-up comic guest in Joe Nudelman! Joe talks with Dave about doing material on sensitive subjects, the influences of George Carlin and Bill Hicks on Joe’s approach to comedy, and how The War of Art pertains to the grind of open mics.
In another long-coming move, the panel discusses Drake’s recently released album, Nothing Was the Same. The Sweetness has featured SO MANY Drake songs in the past few months, so this discussion is the culmination of all Dave’s excitement, and he promises to shut up about Drake for at least a little while after this.
Panel starts around 7:00, and the interview starts at 55:00. Enjoy!
