The Joker movie, while a work a fiction, shows that completely crazy people try stand-up comedy. So here, two stand-up comedians discuss the insane business of comedy, including shows that nobody shows up for, comics who might become real-life jokers, and wacky comedy show ideas that go nowhere. Guest Bill Hidebrandt talks about his movie theater comedy show, Joel sees some awful comics in a competition, and why everyone hates everyone else in comedy. Also, Joel’s review of Joker, a well-made film that isn’t for everybody. Plus, RIP Rip Taylor and Ginger Baker, Ghostbusters doesn’t hold up, and reviews of Undone, Diagnosis, American Horror Story, and hear what happens when Bill’s air drumming goes wrong.

RIP Rip Taylor. His hair died in 1972
