Episode 82 - Matty Ryan

6 months ago

Matty Ryan (great stand up, one of Brooks' oldest friends) is in town to record a comedy central set so he stops by to talk about the tour he and Brooks lost their minds on, being fired by his uncle from his first job, being fired from scooping ice cream, and about the time he took a job to see how long it would take for them to fire him. Truly one of the worst employees ever interviewed.
