Podcast Episode #15: Ritch Shydner

Alumnus of “The Tonight Show,” “Merv Griffin,” and HBO One Night Stand-up, “Roseanne” staff writer, star of the documentary “I am Comic” and 38 year showbiz veteran, Ritch Shydner likes my intro theme music!

Nun ‘Til April

So I’m playing this game. It’s a game lots of guys play inadvertently all the time except it probably doesn’t feel like a game to them, more like being “hard up”.

My real-time…
