On the “most bubbly ever” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer welcome Ray Harrington on the show to talk about his Amazon & iTunes chart-topping album ‘The Worst Is Over’, what doing the work really looks like, ideas versus execution, putting yourself in the position to get opportunities, why labels distract comics from their goals, and how the most important aspect of your career is a network of people who know, like and trust you.
In addition, we have fun discussing hacky joke structures, catfishing comedians, podcast editing, when the right time is to get business cards, the best and worst merchandise we’ve seen, and why Ray hates Jim Gaffigan, amongst other things.
