Ep 25: Steve-O

COMEDIAN/STUNTMAN/JACKASS STAR

Steve-O:(a.k.a. Stephen Glover)is a household name and it all started when he began producing homemade videos of dangerous stunts mixed with comical behavior. Steve-O graduated from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College in 1997, and had a career as a circus clown before achieving fame on Jackass and Wildboyz. Since then, he has become a New York Times bestselling author, standup comedian, and actor. His first hour-long comedy special recently premiered on Showtime and performed in the top one percent of all Showtime comedy specials.

Ep 24: Wix Wichman

COMEDIAN/RECORD PROMOTER/TV HOST

Wix Wichmann is a comedian, former country music record promoter, Nashville Star, He’s now at Average Joe’s, and he’s the host of a videocast on youtube called “Wix in the Mix”.

He actually interviewed me for his show as I was interviewing him so you can hear that process as it happened on their end too. We talked about his years as a touring comedian, his stint as a country music promoter, Colt Ford & Average Joes Entertainment, Larry the Cable Guy, Kid Rock, Pamela Anderson, and I think I geeked all over the walls because the interview was in their Star Wars room with a bunch of cool Star Wars memorabilia. They had comic books made of their artists. I literally stole them all. They even had this old KISS pinball machine that was actually signed by all of the band members. I would have stolen it too if I could have got it in my bag.
