Interview: I am joined by legendary stand-up comedian and author, Ritch Shydner. Ritch is one of the most well-respected funny people in the world. Ritch is not only a hilarious stand-up comic but a comedian historian as well. His book Kicking Through the Ashes: My Life As A Stand-Up In the 1980s Comedy Boom is considered a classic alongside I Killed which chronicles true stories from America's top comics. Rich also produced the movie I Am Comic which explores the world of stand-up comedy. 

Ritch shares a ton of amazing stories with me. Including his times on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, working with Jackie Martling, working with Steve Martin, Bill Hicks, Eddie Murphy, Tim Allen, Jerry Seinfeld, Rodney Dangerfield, Jeff Foxworthy, and Sam Kinnison. I also get Ritch to share some of his acting adventures with me that include a season of Married with Children, Roxanne with Steve Martin, Beverly Hills Cop II with Eddie Murphy and so much more.  This is a must for all lovers of stand-up comedy!

Our Guest, Ritch Shydner
