This episode's guest is Wayne Federman, a very funny comedian and actor and now author. He has written a book called The History Of Stand Up: From Mark Twain To Dave Chapelle. It is a terrific read. Last year we had Kliph Nesteroph on to talk about his book The Comedians. This functions as a beautiful companion piece, for where Kliph’s book dwells into the lives of the comedians he discusses in the book, Wayne gives you history of the evolution of stand up as an art form -- the different ways it grew, changed, developed and evolved.
