On the “fly on the wall” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer bring Mark Feigenbutz on the show for a very leisurely conversation about the internal and external struggles of moving up the comedy ladder, the destructive nature of staying inside your comfort zone, the process of framing material to suit a specific audience, and how it all ultimately comes down to the fear of failure.
In addition, we discuss how badly the television networks are looking for content, why age demographics play a huge role in the industry opportunities you get, and how early success with a great five-minute showcase set can bite you in the ass later on in your career.

This episode was so bitter and resentful I just could not get through it to hear any of the “advice”
You mentioned Patton as the counterpart to absurdist comics… you know he’s an absurdist comic right?
To your rage with Comedy Central shows, the Ben Show got canceled, it was full of brilliant situational comedy.
Just because you don’t get the jokes doesn’t mean they’re not funny.
