Episode #93: "SoLoMo"

LISTEN:

2012-04-19-RichardLewis1.jpgOn this week's episode of The Six Pack, we interview comedy legend Richard Lewis. We somehow managed to get our lines crossed (literally) and gave him the wrong phone number, so this interview jumps off on a neurotic note... as if Richard would have it any other way!

Richard gives us insight into his early days as a comic: "The bottom line is there were hundreds [of comics] ... [O]nce it started to become popular before the nightclub boom, where they really raped us financially, then we were working for free, which was fine ... [I]t was like artists hanging out in Paris."

Did he curse us out at the end? Hang up on us? Or did we hang up on him? You'll find out!

Catch The Six Pack Saturdays on SiriusXM OutQ channel 108 from 1 to 3 p.m. EST and as a weekly podcast on iTunes, sixpackradio.com, and now... Huffington Post Gay Voices! Listen to the entire podcast episode here.
