About Us

Comedians go onstage night after night in a Sisyphean effort to make strangers laugh. Why do they do it? How do they do it? What is their process? Chicago-based comedy nerd Rob Littwin seeks those answers by talking to featured comedians about their live sets. Each episode is released concurrently with two live videos; one of the live set in question, and another of the same set, with live commentary.
