Greg Fitzsimmons First Time
No BS, Greg Fitzsimmons has been one of my favorite comics since I was in high school, and having him on was an absolute blast. We talk about his early days in the tough Boston scene, watching Hedberg bomb, performing at the AVN awards and I tell him my favorite jokes I’ve watched him do over the years. Hands down, this episode is one of my favorites.
Pat House is a nationally-touring comedian based out of Philadelphia.
