They say all musicians secretly want to be comedians, but today’s guests do not seem to keep any secret of their comedic leanings. Aimee Mann, Ted Leo, and Jon Wurster all have serious comedy cred, between touring with Paul F. Tompkins, making music videos with Paul F. Tompkins, and performing on radio shows with Paul F.
