On today's episode, I talk to comedian and director Bobcat
Goldthwait. Originally from Syracuse, Bobcat's career is so full of
hyphens that "multihyphenate" doesn't even scratch the surface.
From acting in films like Police Academy and Scrooged to directing
TV for shows like Community and Jimmy Kimmel to directing comedy
specials for folks like Marc Maron and Patton Oswalt to directing
his own films like World's Greatest Dad and God Bless America. But
since the start of his career, Bobcat has been a stand-up. His
special with Dana Gould Joy Ride was released in 2021 and his
latest album Soldier for Christ was just released at the end
of April by Pretty Good Friends, and it is great!
