Hayes Davenport

Hayes Davenport struggles to even get out of bed in the morning. He doesn’t see the point in living another day when nothing anyone does really means anything. He’s written for Allen Gregory and Eastbound & Down, but who cares, right? It doesn’t matter. He hosts the reality SHOW show Tuesdays on Earwolf. He’ll see you around, or he won’t. Whatever.
