Willamette Week: How did you land on Portland as the place you wanted to record your newest comedy album?

straight men

It seems like comedy albums have made a bit of a comeback in recent years. What are your thoughts? Do you think it has anything to do with the explosion of comedy podcasts?

Speaking of podcasts, what percentage of comics you book on Put Your Hands Together opt out of being recorded for distribution?
You came out of Chicago, a town with a long comedic history. Portland is just starting to build a comedy scene. What do you think it takes to maintain a healthy and productive scene once the first few generations of comics have left for L.A.?
Wham Bam Pow is an ingenious podcast. There are hundreds of podcasts about movies, but your show tends to be more about you and panelists Rhea Butler and Ricky Carmona hanging out and shooting the shit and occasionally talking about a movie. How did you develop the format? (Also I really loved the remake of Judge Dredd.)
WW: Did you catch a lot of heat from Macklemore fans after what you wrote about “Same Love"?
He seems to have a pretty active, social media-based, core group of fans that don’t like it when people criticize him.
