Gahhh! I saw the episode title and my worlds collided! Martin was at the same open mic I was at in Austin when I did standup for the very first time. (Although he'd been at it for much longer and was clearly committed, while I was.... drunk.) It's been so cool watching him grow as a comic and I love his shit.

He did a whole set once where he told the audience that he had been told he was good comic but never got to see his stuff since he was always onstage during the show. So he wrote out his set and pulled a woman from the audience up on stage and took her place while she read all his jokes. Only the jokes were so offensive that he started heckling her from the crowd and angrily walked out. It was a really creative set and it made me think of comedy differently.

Yay Martin! So happy you guys had him on.
