More deep dives into the multiverse’s darkest crevices. A thought experiment leads to thinking about the world without George Bailey, one where Forest Gump gets a sequel and Kev’s one-liners are wheely awesome. There’s a renaissance happening on Staten Island, and this is the soundtrack.
Had a great time talking with friend and legend Mike Bocchetti.
Mike is a comedy lifer, his one liners stick in your head and bounce around as you think about how concisely they’re crafted. While Mike often makes himself the center of his punchlines, don’t get mixed messages about it: Mike is Marine, at least he was for 8 weeks.
Dive in to this really great talk and check out Mike’s new album “Thank You!” available where all digital music is peddled!
This doozy goes deep into how misspelled start-ups set a tone for shady employee practices, not knowing how to deal with strange and scary white folk, fatalistic sloganeering, disjointed renderings of serial killer portraits, odd synchronicities between Two centuries worth of Koreshes, the power of guilt and how to not overuse it, along with several dozen off-road trips. All of the above served on a healthy bed of some of the healthiest esoteric, folk, funk, and good ol’ weird American music.
Really psyched to have comedian Peter Revello on this Composite Beast episode to talk about growing up on Staten Island, Civil Wars between age groups, having discipline and sense of purpose, rebranding opium dens as downtown hipster haunts, playing handball in early spring, having true affection for people you don’t necessarily agree with, along with several dozen other non-sequiturs. Pete is a straight-up good guy who is going places — I look forward to seeing where his hard work, agile wit, and sincerity take him.
