Episode 34: What Happened To Kill Tony?

In this episode, we take a break from philosophy and discuss recent events from stand-up comedy. Tony Hinchcliffe is a stand-up comedian who has hosted the live show/podcast Kill Tony for many years. Kill Tony is a lottery show where anyone can put their name in a hat for a chance to perform 60 seconds of material in front of a live audience. After the set, Tony and a guest offer critiques. The guests often include the most famous comedians in the world, such as Russell Peters and Bill Burr. Last week Tony was dropped by his talent agency and all Kill Tony live shows were cancelled. Find out why in this mysterious episode.
