Listen to The History of Standup as told by Wayne Federman and friends

You want to get your TBTs on in a very comedy way?

Starting this week, your ear holes can deliver the history of comedy into your brain parts, thanks to the brand-new podcast, The History of Standup.

Over the course of six weekly episodes, teacher Wayne Federman (who is a legit professor of comedy at USC when he’s not performing himself) and student Andrew Steven work chronologically through the past century of comedy. This week’s debut episode includes guest “lecturers” Judd Apatow and Kliph Nesteroff.

At the end, a seventh episode will include a panel discussion wondering about the future of comedy.

So listen up!
