Danny Lobell (USA)

Danny Lobell started out in New York City 12 years ago doing open mics

auditioning at the clubs. He became a headliner and built up a following on his podcast, 

Comical Radio, which was the first ever podcast to feature interviews with comedians. 

On it, he interviewed comedians like George Carlin, Chris Rock, and Billy Connolly, along 

with entertainers such as Larry King and Dick Cavett.

During this time, he captivated audiences in England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Spain, 

South Africa, France, and Belgium with his surrealist observations and vivid storytelling.

In 2012, he appeared on Chicago Public Media's "This American Life," on which he told a 

story about raising a rooster in Brooklyn with his gangster neighbor. He was also a guest 

on WTF with Marc Maron, The Artie Lange Show, and My Damn Channel's Love Me Cat.

After relocating from NYC to Los Angeles, Danny podcast that partners a modern or 

ancient philosopher with a comedian. Maria Bamford, Bill Burr, Lewis Black, Carl Reiner, 

Shelley Berman, Reggie Watts, Aisha Tyler, Andy Kindler, and Marc Maron have 

appeared on the show.
