On today’s show I have Ira Nayman, a Canadian comedy writer who has written both books and screenplays. He was also a writer/performer in a comedy troop in the 80′s. Ira and I talk about writing and comedy and several other things that we found funny at the time.
I also provide a review of Ira’s book, Welcome to the Multiverse, Sorry for the Inconvenience.
That’s today’s episode. I hope you enjoy it.
