Podcasts | Mohr Stories – comedian Jay Mohr weaves humorous tales & interviews

Share

Comedian Jay Mohr and a rotating cast of his hilarious friends regale you with tales and conversation covering every topic imaginable on his podcast Mohr Stories.

Following an impressive filmography, Jay’s favorite project he’s ever worked on has been developing his “Mohr Stories” podcast. I started listening to the podcast last year and have enjoyed about 50 episodes thus far. He is now approaching his 100th episode.

He’s entertained a wide assortment of guests–ranging from Rufus Wainwright and Charlie Sheen, to his own priest and fellow podcasters Marc Maron and Adam Carolla.

Podcasts | Marc Maron’s WTF – thoughtful, talented comedian interviews other comedians

Share

I’ve enjoyed over 100 of Marc Maron’s WTF podcasts. This smart comedian has a talent for coaxing surprisingly revealing and interesting things from his comedic guests which results in excellent and unique interviews not usually obtained by others.

Here’s what Jonah Weiner of Rolling Stone wrote: Acid-tongued, rage-prone satirist Marc Maron has been a stand-up-circuit fixture since the Eighties, hosting Comedy Central shows and befriending guys like Judd Apatow and Conan O’Brien along the way.

But his new podcast, “WTF,” may be his greatest achievement yet: a series of unvarnished shit-shoots with comedians that move from laugh-geek joke anatomy to quasi-therapeutic venting. Louis C.K. wept during his epic two-part interview. “The podcast began in desperation,” Maron says.

“I was broke, in the middle of a divorce, and I decided I needed to talk to my peers.” Maron’s guests range from comedians’ comedians like Todd Barry to hip young acts like Aziz Ansari to megastars like Ben Stiller.

The podcast has been good for his career — fans in the industry have approached him about developing other projects — but Maron says that’s just a happy byproduct. “I’m doing exactly what I want to do,” he says. “That’s rare.”
