Stretching It Out with Shawn Pelofsky

11/20/2018
More
Hey Idiots! I got to interview a comedian I have looked up to since I started and it did NOT disappoint! Shawn Pelofsky--gay icon, military touring extraordinaire--sat down with me to talk about her new special and told some crazy stories about her life and where comedy has taken her. We talk about our sorority days--we were both Chi O's :) And we compare college debauchery and more. She's so fucking funny and just an all around incredible human! ENJOY! GET SHAWN'S...

Practicing "Self Care" Yeah, Okay LOL with Taylor Tomlinson

11/13/2018
More
Hey Idiots! Amazing episode this week! I'm joined by hilarious comedian Taylor Tomlinson! We talk about life on the road and how we're both attempting to slow down on touring to take care of ourselves and how difficult that actually is. There's so much good stuff in this episode from self-love to relationships to being women in comedy and so so so much more. We talk about how past traumas fuck up your relationships and discuss whether or not you can ever get past that being a thing....

Eric Lampaert and the Art of Letting Go

11/6/2018
More
Hey Idiots! What an incredible interview I have for you this week! My hilarious friend Eric Lampaert joined me and we talked about everything under the sun AND ABOVE IT! (Seriously, we got into the big bang theory and how everything is a reaction of what's already happened and he explains why we don't really have any control) It's an amazing interview and we go deep into the reasons for letting go and how hard that can be, as well as life, in general, comedy and why it's so fucking...

Hey Idiots! Enjoy this overly lenghty episode of me, alone, spouting off about the California propositions which I loosely attempted to educate myself on eventually leading to me being pissed off at society, as a whole, and still not even super sure of what the fuck I'm doing. Don't forget to vote or whatever I'm supposed to say. Join me and other idiots in the private Facebook group for deep dives of ignorant discussions or literally anything except petty fighting because there's...

Arm Deep in a Dead Sheep with Logan Salvadore

10/23/2018
More
Hey Idiots! Here's a brand new episode of a young man named Logan Salvadore I just met while traveling through Prague! (I hope to do more of these through my touring!) He had a cool life story and we didn't even get to dig into all of it! I learned about a religion I'd never heard of which, like many religions, has some pretty good principles buried in the BS of organized religion. He tells me about his dad coming out as gay! He lived on a farm in New Zealand that was filled with fresh...

Hoodily boodily doodily Idiots! This week is all about Sweden and Swedish culture! Why are they so tall? Who is the Swedish chef based on? Do they eat Swedish fish? Do they get drugs for free? Why are they all so good looking? Where are they hiding the mammoths? Is Sweden actually the same place as Switzerland and we are all being tricked? Are there even Jews in Sweden? Which culture looks the most like my Neanderthal ancestors? Cover photo by: Yoko Haraoka Follow Jens on...

The Mad Scenes of Miss Alaska with Sydnee Waggoner

9/29/2018
More
Hey Idiots! Oh. My. God. This interview was SO fun! I sat down with my friend Sydnee Waggoner, who I used to play soccer with back in middle and high school. She now lives in PRAGUE and is a PROFESSIONAL OPERA SINGER! WHAAAT!?? So cool! She came to my show and then I had to ask her all my dumb questions about opera. But ALSO she was Miss Alaska once upon a time so of course I had to pry and find out behind the scenes drama and what pageant life is like. We talk about the changes...

Christoph Waltz is a National Treasure (with Paul Jacobs and Reginald Barris)

9/23/2018
More
Hey Idiots! My guest this week is Austrian comedian Paul Jacobs who talked to my about Hitler, Krampus, the EU and more. This episode is insane and I laughed so hard throughout it because I genuinely knew so little about Austrian culture and it was so funny to learn some of it. It's all the weirdest customs of white people in a magnifying glass. I mistook the EU to just specifically mean Euros and I tried desperately to get everyone else excited about The Sound of Music. Reginald Barris...

Death Row and Ex Patriotism with Reginald Barris

9/16/2018
More
Hey Idiots! I sat down with Austrian ex pat comedian Reginald Barris to have a conversation that went all over the place (and back to Austria several times). Reginald started comedy a few years ago in Vienna, Austria when there was no English speaking comedy scene. He has helped build the scene from the ground up and helped me get all the venues locked in for a few of my European shows, as well as did awesome opening sets on all of them. When I asked to interview him, I thought I'd...

The Constant Work of Recovery with Eleanor Conway

8/25/2018
More
Hey Idiots! I sat down with one of my Edinburgh flatmates, Eleanor Conway, to talk about sobriety and her journey to recovery. It's a really honest conversation about the struggles of maintaining sanity in sobriety and having to walk a line when you're in a field surrounded by people who love to party. Eleanor is really open and honest about the downward spiral that lead to recovery and how she deals with hers on a daily basis. Enjoy and go follow her and see her when she comes near...

Rips and R.I.P.s with Jessica Singer

8/5/2018
More
Hey Idiots! I sat down with my roommate and friend, Jessica Singer, to talk about what it was like being born to parents who had experienced the death of their previous child. Jessica was born after the death of her brother and we get into a deep discussion about how that affects a household and what kind of pressure that puts on the other children in the family. We lighten it up a little with some talk about marijuana. (No pun intended.) Jessica has worked at a dispensary for a...

Creating Pretty, Funny Women with Lisa Sundstedt

Hey Idiots! This week I sat down with the founder of the longest running all female comedy show and class, Lisa Sundstedt. I met Lisa when I first moved to LA and did her class after confidently emailing her asking to do her show, which was only for students. I took the class thinking "ugh I can't believe I'm taking a comedy CLASS" and ended up getting great bits and amazing friends out of it. No regrets. Take that, stupid ego! She's great and we dive into what got her into teaching and...

Happy Codependents Day! (with Jamie Kilstein)

7/4/2018

Hey Idiots! Just in time for Independence Day (for my American listeners, probably more of a "Good Riddance Day" for the UK) I have my friend Jamie Kilstein on to talk about codependency. Jamie is a comedian, and like many of us, he struggles with codependency. We chat about both of our histories with it, the work we've done (or haven't done) to help change our patterns and where we are now. As always, there's lots of fun stories mixed in! Also, we didn't get it on air because...

Hey Idiots! My guest this week is my hilarious friend, Jeff Arcuri! He's so great. We planned to talk about growing up as the only boy in a house full of ladies, and we did...a little. But we went so many other silly places like fish boogers and farting in relationships. WHEN IS IT OKAY? CAN YOU FART AT WORK? I STILL DON'T KNOW! We spend a decent amount on butts. And dicks. We're honestly out of control. Listen and laugh! And watch Jeff on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday, 6/4 at...

Happy belated Mother's Day, Idiots! My guest this week is Maeret (pronounced "merit" like the badge) Lemons. We have a lot of laughs and a really open and honest conversation about her life as a single mom trying to chase a dream. Spoiler alert: It's not easy. She talks about accepting the imperfections that come with trying to balance both and we talk about the difference in women whose biggest dream is being a mom, women whose biggest dream is being something else and what happens...

We did it, idiots! We made it to 50! We're 50! I'm 50! I have quit everything else I've done in comedy besides stand up after less than 10 episodes. I think. I don't know. But I really love you guys and this podcast and I'm so thankful! My best friend Dana Moon came in and interviewed me! We answer your questions! We talk about what we are into in men and in bed and how we feel guilty about some of it. We talk about when we did shrooms and how it changed us. I get into weird theoretical...
