Blake Wexler’s First Time
Blake Wexler started doing stand-up in the Philly-area when he was 15…and I hated him for it. OK, I didn’t hate him, but he stole my thunder of being the youngest comedian in Philadelphia. Blake is a very close friend and we had a lot to say in this episode. We share some Philly-related stories from our early days, how he would call bars to see if he was even allowed in to perform, his mom driving him to open-mics, his days at Emerson College in Boston and then moving to Los Angeles.
Pat House is a nationally-touring comedian based out of Philadelphia. A regular performer in comedy clubs, casinos, and theaters all over the country, Pat has been a choice opener for Sebastian Maniscalco, Tom Segura, and Dan Cummins. He recorded his first album Biggest Thing in 2013, and his latest album Heard Enough Yesterday, hit #1 on the iTunes comedy charts. Both can be heard on iTunes, Amazon, and Pandora.
Blake Wexler started doing stand-up at the age of 15 in Philadelphia, then moved to Boston in 2007 to pursue his comedy career and attend Emerson College. While at Emerson Blake was named as one of the funniest college students in the country at The Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival two years in a row, and after graduating with degrees in journalism and political science he moved to Los Angeles.
Since moving to LA, Blake has written for and appeared on Comedy Central, was a featured performer in numerous comedy festivals, became the first comedian/writer to appear on ABC’s “Watch Party: The Bachelor”, and can be regularly heard on The Cracked Podcast, The Daily Zeitgeist, & The Todd Glass Show.
Blake’s critically acclaimed stand-up comedy recordings The Blake Album (2016) and Stuffed Boy (2018) debuted near the top of the iTunes charts, and his recent album 12 Years of Voicemails from Todd Glass to Blake Wexler was #1 on iTunes & Amazon.
