Few are as equipped as Wayne Federman to discuss the history of comedy, especially stand-up, as Wayne is not only meticulously studied on the topic and a current professor of stand-up at the University of Southern California, but he has been a very funny, ever-evolving comedian for many decades.
His and Andrew Steven’s podcast mini-series The History of Standup on Podglomerate thus is a handy guide through how stand-up has developed rapidly as an art form even though it’s much younger than most other art forms, especially of the live variety.
Wayne and Andrew will be doing a special live ep. of The History of Standup with a TBA special guest at Dynasty Typewriter at Hayworth Theater next Sunday, Nov. 18th at 2PM.
Fans, nerds, and even those just merely curious of stand-up comedy might want to get into this. Tickets are $15 and you can go get them here.
