We at Where the Funny Matters are excited to say that the KEXP Music That Matters Podcast has made a Comedy Edition! In it, DJ Troy Nelson and I, your humble WTFM blogger Corbett Cummins, host an hour long set of stand-up comedy that will rock you head and music that will split your sides. Not only is a great way to find just how big of dorks we are, but it’s also a pretty sweet shot of funny.
We packed this sucker with awesome material from comics like Patton Oswalt, Todd Barry, Steven Wright, and David Cross, as well as some great music from Brian Posehn and groups like the Hard ‘N Phirm and Asylum Street Spankers. We also represent the locals with tracks from the band “Awesome”, comedian David Cope, and kilobytes more. All guaranteed to make you L.O.L.
Says my co-host, DJ Troy: “There is a revolution going on in the comedy world, and we feel it is our duty to bring you this podcast to share the thought provoking, the absurd, and the in-your-face comedy that you deserve to hear. This podcast is unscripted and has a ‘fly by the seat of our pants’ broadcast. So join us while we take a wild ride into strange and beautiful territories.”
If you are not overwhelmed by the awesomeness yet, check out the clips below from some of the some of the artists should put you over the edge.
