EP. 70 — Rock ‘n Roll Dreams
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. Tompkins. Speaking of Paul F. Tompkins, artist Mr. Brainwash makes his first appearance to discuss making art (and science) for the people. Listen to musicians doing what they do best (critiquing music), and what they do worst (short-form improv), and french artists doing what they do best (pronouncing the word “mustard”) and what they do worst (pronouncing the word “mustard”).
