We performed three shows in Toronto for the Just For Laughs festival. There were hilarious guests and bits but most of the footage and pictures have been lost. It will remain a mystery what actually went down at the shows except for those that were in attendance. If you know you know.
A very special Del Close Marathon episode featuring comedians Jon Gabrus, Isaiah Lester and HQ Host Scott Rogowsky. Adam hosts the worlds largest live HQ but doesn't let Scott ask a single question. Wine is provided by Josh Lit, wine director for Gotham Bar and Grill, and creator of ForkandSaber.com, Ryan Smith. The show closes with an original song from Hermes Heartbreaker.
On this episode Adam is joined by co-host Isaiah Lester and comedienne Periel Aschenbrand. Wine is provide by the sommeliers from NYC wine bars The Athenian and The Immigrant. Tunes brought to you by Cassandra Jenkins.
In this episode Sarah Tracey (Rouge Tomate) brings in wines perfect for a rainy day. Mr. Throwback sets up shop on stage. Anthony Antamanuik joins in on the tasting and it all caps off with an electric performance from Chicago MC, Ro$$ Mac.
