Contributor Matt Ruby speaks with comedian Seaton Smith about his approach to stand up comedy, including the ways in which he incorporates elements of what he’s learned from improv, boxing, sermons, motivational speakers, ‘Zen and the Art of Archery,’ and famous comics such as Martin Short, Bill Burr, Richard Pryor, and Eddie Murphy.
Later in the episode, Charles Hinshaw and J. McVay discuss the new movie, ‘The Report’ written and directed by Scott Z. Burns and starring Adam Driver and Annette Bening — out now from Amazon Studios.
And we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by New York band Color Tongue, from their upcoming BTR Live Studio session.
