On today's show I talk to comedian Kevin Avery. Originally from San Francisco, Kevin currently lives in New York where he is a writer on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Previously, he was the head writer on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell and wrote on Best Week Ever before that. Kevin's also a wonderful stand-up and podcaster - his first album is called Hardcore, and with Kamau, he hosts the Wolfpop podcast Denzel Washington is The Greatest Actor of All Time Period.
