Podcast #37: Jeff Shaw and more

Jeff Shaw has had an interesting road to Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle this weekend – and some of that road was the sea! Jeff tells Tom about how cruise ships are the new “road” for comedians, why you shouldn’t expect a dirty show from him and how he’s making his new album this weekend at the club. Jeff’s unique and very funny. Don’t miss his shows! Plus, Melissa Hager, last week’s opener, joins Tom to talk about her unusual start in stand-up comedy and why her style is the one thing most comics don’t have. And if that wasn’t enough, this week’s feature act Khurum Sheikh, talks about being a retired Ann Arbor cop and the influence of his mother on his show. This is a monster podcast! Come laugh with us this weekend at the club.

Canadian comedian, and this week’s headliner, Jeff Leeson chats with Tom for this week’s podcast.

Also, joining Jeff is this week’s emcee Tim Finkel. Tim details how he got into comedy later than most, why he tries to be clean on stage, and how he juggles the double life of being a teacher by day and comedian at night.
