The other night I sat in a Taco Bell (second podcast in a Taco Bell if you're keeping track at home) with Bobby Jaycox to catch up with my buddy. Bobby has been crushing it lately in comedy. He's performing all over the place, he's writing and performing on STL Up Late, as well as at the Improv Shop in town. He's even has his own short film Dad Kiss featured in the Sham Film Festival coming up.
Please check out STL Up Late if you haven't done so, it's a great show creating loads of great content. They're looking to try and take their show to television and you can help by getting involved at STLUpLate.com or their Kickstarter page.
