The first live show where we’re feeling out a new style and
experimenting a bit, and I call this one FUN and a SUCCESS. With
one of my favorite stand-ups Nick Vatterott (Comedy
Central Half Hour, Conan, etc.) as the first guest
co-host, how could it not be fun? We were joined by former
Daily Show correspondent and delightful stand-up Wyatt Cenac, xoJane Deputy
Editor Mandy Stadtmiller
and wonderful musical guest Xenia Rubinos for a free-ranging
discussion of our guests’ childhoods that covered: Ghostly Aunt
Jemima, a Care Bear massacre, a lesson on re-insurance, growing up
with Brian K. Vaughan, Chinese Santa Claus, Scott Peterson's water
people defense, and fleeing communist Cuba. Plus, in the epilogue,
I talk to adultswim.com writer Kelly Hudson about what it
was like growing up in Texas.
