SORT BY Relevancy
Actors, musicians and comedians have always had to find a way to make a living while still having the freedom to do what they love. It's the universal struggle that we've all shared for generations. In this new economy, for better or for worse, new ways to earn a living are emerging. Uber has emerged as one of the more popular ones. It gives you the freedom to work on your own schedule and pays better than minimum wage. Being a server or flipping burgers isn't the only way to scrape by anymore. With a little proper planning and effort, you can actually make a pretty good living.
Many of Matt's comedian friends have been driving for Uber for the past 2 years and, in addition to having some hilarious stories, are able to strike that balance and earn a living while pursing their comedy careers. This week, we'll hear from some of them, including Vicki Wagner and Robert Field.
They make us laugh, by the funny things they say and the funny things they do. Comedians paint a picture of their lives as it relates to their environment and makes it relevant to us. So naturally, we expect to see them in stand-up comedy spots, specials, sitcoms, and comedic roles in movies. Yet a select few have made the transition over to the "other" side of the room, and delved into dramatic films. Tonight, our conversation is focused on three such professionals: Jackie Gleason, Mo'nique and Jamie Foxx.
George Bettinger, Nancy Lombardo and Steve Mendoza reveal their choices for greatest film comedians past and present in this Movie Addict Headquarters re-run episode scheduled for May 5. All three guests boast important experience as actors and comics. For example, Bettinger has won acclaim with his uncanny impressions; Lombardo appears frequently in "Saturday Night Live" skits; and Mendoza makes people laugh with his amusing take on life.
Also, through the magic of imagination and technology, comedy greats W. C. Fields, Jimmy Durante, Mae West and Groucho Marx have agreed to call in.
Will Charlie Chaplin, Madeline Kahn, Buster Keaton, Jack Black, Jim Carrey, Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Lucille Ball, Eddie Murphy, Peter Sellers, Jerry Lewis or any of your other favorites make it to the list of Top Film Comedians? Remember to listen in and find out.
Here’s more background info on our three special guests:

Works of art are made to be judged, correct? They are creative creations created by a thoughtful creator in order to be judged. Do we judge too hard? Do we not judge enough? Should the creator or artist be held more accountable for the integrity, quality and benefit of their product, or should they be let off the hook more often?
This week, we jump into one huge aspect of that concept when we discuss Christian singers, rappers, and comedians, and whether they operate by the same code and rules as everyone else !
As my four year Anniversary in Stand-Up approaches, it's time for a vulnerable and transparent episode into one of the topics I've always struggled with the most. HELP ME !
"Must Christian Artists Make Clean Art?" ..this week on The Erik Terrell Show.
Think Tank, a YouTube channel, published a video on titled “7 Things You LOVE That Are Banned In The Bible”. In the video the co-hosts engage in conversation about seven things that they say are banned in the bible. They go further by providing the scriptures prohibiting the things on their list. The list includes; bacon, football, t-shirts, gossip, tattoos, comedians and believe it or not sex.
So in your mind you might question the authority of the Bible to prohibit these things. Or you just may question the Think Tank co-hosts’ interpretation of the Bible. Listen in as the Brothers in the Virtual Living Room bring light as to what the Bible does say about these seven things. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsh12Jj0AmE
Please feel free to phone into the Virtual Living room with your comments or questions. We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Mon 8:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Thu 8:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am. All times are Eastern Standard Time.
If it's happening, it's relevent, or if no body cares let's talk about it. Creative insight on what's going on with me, you, and everyone else. Come listen to the voice of an Atlanta comic trying to make sense of this crazy journey that we call life. Interesting guest stopping through for the ride. Just take a listen and get hooked! I'm here for the long haul.
Steve McInelly: Steve McInelly is a Las Vegas based comedian raised in Utah living in Sin City. McInelly, who is known for an uncensored brand of comedy, was first approached three years ago by club Djs to see if he could make a show with fun-loving open minded comics work in of all places. Since then, three years later, he has grown to be a Vegas headliner and a gate keeper in the Facebook Group: Comedians Helping Comedians. We will be discussing censorship, promotion using social media nad the Las Vegas Comedy Scene today at 3pm..
Quiet Comedy: From the wesbite shayne-michael.com, to the Facebook Group Comedians Wanted - No Bringers, we had a history of discussing the state of comedy and how to improve on our craft. This will be a half hour weekly podcast/ call in show where we talk over the business of comedy, current events and our comedy careers with some of the best up and coming comics on the scene today. Nothing will be scripted; and hopefully comics will find themselves building somewhat of a fan base as we talk.
Steve Hill, Maryellen Hooper and Keith Lowell Jensen are professional comedians. They are also atheists.
In this roundtable discussion, Seth Andrews asks them about life on the road (and the stage), how their non-belief in the supernatural influences their material, facing the hecklers, and their desires to make people laugh while, perhaps, also making them think.
