Splitting a bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir and getting deep into the challenges of a comedian's love life with another of my oldest friends in comedy. Not that he's old. I'm older than him, I just mean, you know, we've known each other a long time.
Kermet Apio is almost universally described as one of the nicest guys in comedy, a native of Hawaii, devoted husband and father, and not a frog. He and I shared a bottle of Soave and discussed the issues of the day.
Interviewing one of my oldest friends in comedy (and-spoiler-we were once a couple), we talk a little bit about Malbec, and a whole lot more about the influences in our lives that have influenced us to become comedians.
Tyler, Neeraj, and I got pretty deep into conversation yesterday, and the time got away from us.

I'll be teaching a series of wine 101 classes for my company's sales team. This is the first one. I will continue trying to improve audio quality moving forward.
