Episode 82: The Finely Tuned Adam Ferrara Machine


Ob la di, ob la da, it’s podcast time, la la la la podcast tiiiiime.

Hey!  Today’s interview is quite fantastic.  Magnificent, even.  Because today’s podcast is with Adam Ferrara.  This is a good one.  Seriously, no bullshit with the “fantastic” and “magnificent.”  This is a really, really good interview.  Adam Ferrara has been doing stand up longer than the Loop 202 has been a highway, longer than the Diamondbacks have been a team, even longer than Joe Arpaio has been a total asshole.  Well, maybe not THAT long, but definitely longer than Sheriff Joe has been Sheriff Joe, so there is a lot to learn from him.  This interview is just like Adam’s stand up- at times very silly, at times very touching, unafraid to be serious and let an uncomfortable moment hang in the air for a very good reason.

This is a great insight into a well seasoned comedic mind.  The talk is fast, and the advice comes rapid-fire, so buckle up and hang on, because Adam shared with us tons of knowledge gleaned from 26 years of stand up experience.  It’s just like his standup, so personal to him, but so relateable to everyone listening.

Adam was very kind to spend time talking with us, both he and his wife were very generous and warm.  We can’t say enough good things; we just hope that you’ll go to Adam’s website, follow him on Twitter, and like him on the Facebookz.

This Wednesday at Hidden House, we’ll be giving Bartender Brian’s carpal tunnel a run for the money, as the walls will be practically bulging with all the comedy stuffed inside!  Get out to Phoenix’s Longest Running Independent Comedy Show at 9pm for Michael Kohn’s birthday party with Jason Hill, Gonzo, Jay McCreary, Kelly Stewart, Kristofer Royer, Larry Hernandez, Nick Ehst, Ryan Lawson, and Zed Phillips, with special guest appearances by the globetrotting Ola, and from Arrested Development, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Silicon Valley, Asif Ali!

Thursday night at Monkey Pants, we’ll get a headlining visit from the grumpy stepdad of PHX Comedy, Steve Maxwell!  Steve has been around longer than a bacon wrapped deep fried hot dog smothered in nacho cheese hangs out in you colon, so come and enjoy the culmination of all that comedy bitterness all in one dose, after you get warmed up by the humourous antics of Amy Blackwell, Anwar Newton, Durrell Johnson, Erin Ontko, John Henry, Josh Graves, Matt Storrs, Zed Phillips, Matt Martin, and from Arrested Development, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Silicon Valley, Asif Ali!

This Sunday at Monkey Pants, it will be almost like a $6 Sunday all over again, but this time with actual audience members!  Come out for the Voyage Trekkers Movie Fundraising Party, headlined by James Hoenscheidt, featuring Bully Mammoth and a slew of others!  Happy hour all day long, plus $6 tres tacos & Dos Equis!
