The Jimmy Dore Show: Premium Audio now available!

Comedy & Everything Else 6-3-12 Lizz Winstead

Comedy andEverything Else Episode#171

I was an early adopter to the daily show, I loved it since the days of Craig Kilborn and Brian Unger.  So I was very excited to talk with the creator of the Daily Show, Lizz Winstead!

Lizz Free or Die is her new book in which she tells us how it all began, along with lots of other interesting and funny things.

She writes of getting knocked up by her hockey player boyfriend in high school, spending a fortune on her dogs' waste problems, and saying goodbye to her dying father with understated insight and, of course, humor—reminding us of its value as an antidote to both political and personal hardship.

Mike Macrae opens the show with his impression of an Imam explaining  how to interpret the Koran through the prism of modern alternative comedy. It just  may be my favorite sketch in maybe ever.

Corey Booker, the mayor of Newarki NJ who was supposed to be speaking on behalf of the Obama campaign but actually ended up saying their campaign makes him nauseous. We got him on the phoneto explain and who knew Mike MacRae could do an impression of Corey Booker?

1. I didn’t know Lizz created the Daily Show!
2. I didn’t know Brian Unger (<3) was a journalist!
3. I need to read Lizz's book!
Lizz was very inspiring. Great episode :)

Fine episode…but a big audio dropout toward the end, for about two minutes (just after Winstead suggests comedians stay in touch with non-comedians in their lives, and just before mentioning working with Russell Peters).

Great show!

Jimmy Dore!!

Dammit Jimmy, was TYT ever frustrating today (June 8 2012). I wish you would go-‘the fuck’-off on that douche bag Michael Shure (Ben too for that matter, but he is not as bad IMHO). You were suppose to be a progressive voice of reason and you were too quite. When Michael starts talking pro Obama-kill-list its your job to SHUT THAT SHIT DOWN!! What the fuck is terrorism if its not Obama killing anybody on the planet at a whim!!

Still a big fan, buddy. I’m going through all the old shows and loving your coverage of the Comedy Boot Camp.



War Criminal: I thought I did push back quite a bit, but I as outnumbered. I thought the bigger thing was that they both said that Obama has a plan for jobs. He has a jobs bill, but that is not the same thing.

Thanks for listening!
