Ep 164 - Al Berman
I've known comedian Al Berman since I started comedy. He had come from an east coast upbringing, a NY punk scene and a background of addiction. Came to L.A., got clean, joined the comedy scene. He now still dabbles in comedy and has just started a podcast, his "Sober Man Podcast" which you can find on iTunes or Google Music. Listen, enjoy, subscribe, rate us on iTunes!

Ep 163 - MC Pancho
MC Pancho and his wife Chamorita dropped by the studio today. He is such an interesting guy with a striking look that is both interesting and intimidating. Started out rapping underground and making mix tapes that ended up blowing up in Japan, then he became a cultural icon - from his tattoo work to his facial hair and clothing, this guy's style is quintessential Chicano. But of course like most of our guests, this guy has a surprising side that shows us why you should never judge a book by it's cover. Listen, enjoy, subscribe, rate us on iTunes!

We haven't seen Martin for about 6 years, maybe more and he made it a reunion by bringing his son Hooter and our old friend Ivan (Gabriel's assistant who I used to work with at Dodger Stadium).

Ep 130 - Little Willie G
As a teenager, Little Willie G headed up an East L.A. band referred to as "the Chicano Beatles". Thee Midniters' sound defined Chicano rock music and Chicano culture throughout the 60s and beyond. Willie would fall prey to the dark side of the music industry and develop a problem with drugs and alcohol. His testimony and music was one of the only cassettes we had in my rehab and I really got into his music. Today, Willie has overcome all of those problems through a relationship with God, started a ministry and continues to perform all over the country.

Ep 120 - Josh Adam Meyers
A few years ago, comedian Josh Adam Meyers was at a crossroads, not sure what direction to go with his comedy, had just lost a best friend in an accident, was going through some depressing times and then he decided to take a risk and create something different. Out of this came the God Damn Comedy Jam, a live show he began doing monthly in Los Angeles that now has been picked up by Comedy Central. A blend of short stand-up sets by comedians who finish their act with a cover song with a house band. Many well-known comics have joined his show including me, Bill Burr, Dane Cook, Hannibal Buress, Joey Diaz and so many others. Check it out on Comedy Central.

Ep 116 - Father Greg Boyle
This is the man who literally saved my life and set me on the right track - the path that would eventually lead me to become a comedian. Father Greg Boyle took a gun out of my hand and put me in rehab long before he created the infamous Homeboy Industries - an organization that helps turn former gang members' lives around by giving them jobs, training and a purpose. Before that it was Jobs for the Future, and even before that, he was just a man with a mission to help local kids stop dying at the hands of other local kids. We only scratched the surface today, but know that if it wasn't for this man, I probably wouldn't be here today.

I haven't known this comedian very long, but she's funny and she's too nice to be working in comedy. In fact, she's too nice to be living in the U.S. Call her naive, call her innocent, but she came to the U.S. on her own as a teenager, with no knowledge of speaking English - all for the love of a boy band and a dream to be a dancer. After a lot of trials and tribulations (and a stint on the newer version of Soul Train), she is now a working comedian and occasional actor.

Today, Rodrigo is back from Mexico for good. Plus, we have an old friend on, comedian Ruben Paul. Came up with Ruben in comedy and he's always been a solid guy.

Ep 111 - Eddie EdDro Valdez
We go in hard on this episode. Rodrigo's over in Mexico again so we brought back Dustin Ybarra as a co-host. Our special guest today is Eddie "EdDro" Valdez who I have known for a long time but whose life is completely different than it was back then. After a big setback in his life and career, he got the phone call of a lifetime that set him up for the last 7 years as the personal assistant for world famous comedian, Russell Peters. Dustin talks about possibly burning some bridges during a drunken night before recording this episode. Please take 5 seconds to rate or review the podcast on itunes and if you like it subscribe!

Ep 109 - Fabian Debora
Another episode with our guest co-host, comedian Dustin Ybarra (Rodrigo returns next week). Our guest today is artist, muralist and director of substance abuse counseling for Homeboy Industries, Fabian Debora. I grew up with Fabian in the projects of Boyle Heights. Like me, Fabian had a creative streak in him but nowhere to apply it. So he fell victim to gangs and drugs and started on a path to nowhere quickly. But he's fought those battles and won and now he helps others get through the same experiences. He's also found success as a renowned artist and muralist and is highly regarded for his art all over the world.

Did a little "swap cast" with Barry Katz and his podcast "Industry Standard". I did his show last week and he did mine this week.

He recently wrote a book, "Project Theory" that describes our lives in these projects where there were about 10 gangs in a 2 square mile area, problems at home and at school, etc. Despite being a smart, athletically talented kid, his struggles are an example of what it's like to fight an uphill battle every day and still question if it's worth it.

Ep 84 - Just The Two Of Us Number 4
SPOILER ALERT SHOW! Well... it's the first episode of 2016 and our guest canceled AGAIN! This is the 2nd time we've booked him and he canceled... but he's funny so we're willing to try it one more time in a couple weeks. It had better be worth it. Anyway, it ends up being me and Rodrigo with me trying to give my ghetto explanation of Star Wars (and yes there are spoilers) and the Big Short and a bunch of other stuff.

Happy new year!! Here at home with the wife, the manager, the podcast producer Lesa Esparza. Looking back over the last year. We get to know Lesa a little better - aside from producing the podcast and running my day to day business.

Ep 81_Bobby Lee
Bobby Lee and I go way back. We pretty much started comedy around the same time - him in San Diego and me in L.A. He's a Comedy Store fixture and after several years on Mad TV and almost 20 years of stand-up, he's got a solid headlining career. Bobby can be off the wall on stage but today we see a more vulnerable side as he tells some stories from his early years of comedy and his childhood.

Ep 80 - Larry "Bubbles" Brown
Larry "Bubbles" Brown is our guest today... Hilarious comic from the Bay Area/San Francisco area. He came up during the Robin Williams era of the Bay comedy scene in the 80s. He's worked with Dana Carvey, Dave Attell, me of course, and we all know that Larry is THE best whenever we work in the Bay. Nicknamed "Bubbles" by comedian Paula Poundstone as a sarcastic nod to his chronically depressed persona, Larry always leaves you wondering if he really will "end it all" tomorrow.

Ep 79 - Comedian Jeffrey Keller
Comedian Jeffrey Keller (@MyMomsWhite on Twitter) joins us today on the show. I've known Jeffrey for a long time from back in the day when I was still doing open mics all over L.A. Jeffrey had an interesting background before comedy - a white mom who "boosted" and worked with L.A. mobsters and a black father who played in the L.A. jazz circuit. Jeffrey also had a brief career in the NFL on the Atlanta Falcons and discusses the difference between college football and professional football.

Ep 78 - Las Cafeteras
One of the members of Las Cafeteras gave me their CD about a year ago. I kept it in my car without listening to it because, let's face it, people give me a lot of free shitty CDs… but I wish I had listened to this one sooner. I finally played it a few months ago and something about it touched me. The music was beautiful and the message behind it was something I hadn't heard in music before. A group of 6 young Chicanos who came up through music lessons in a cafe in East L.A. have been working their asses off over the last 10 years and have finally started to get some recognition. We've got 4 of the members with us today (Hector, Daniel, Leah & Jose), they chilled with us and gave us their stories of getting started, their activism and where they're going next. *If you're in the L.A. area, go see them at the El Rey on Dec 12.

Ep 77 - Rapper Mellow Man Ace
*(Guest co-co-host from the Living the Dream Podcast - Beto Duran sits in with us for this episode) Around the same time NWA was coming "straight outta Compton", there was another kid coming straight outta Southgate California by way of Cuba… hitting the charts with a new sound and blazing the trails for future Latin hip hop artists. Mellow Man Ace, AKA Ulpiano Reyes, blew up with a bilingual hit called "Mentirosa" and continued strong for several years, including his experience as a founding member of Cypress Hill with his brother Sen Dog. After feeling cramped by corporate music's hold and control over his sound, he was forced to take a huge leap and do things his own way. Touring and stumbling a few times over the years, he's back in a new way and helping bring up other young hip hop artists, including his son, rapper Cazal Organism. They are starting a reality show together on FuseTV in 2016 - all about their lives behind the scenes as they work with other hip hop artists, perform their live shows and spend time with their families.

Ep 75 - Comedian Johnny Sanchez
If you ever ask me who helped me get started in my comedy career, one of the first people I'll probably mention is comedian Johnny Sanchez. Johnny has been on MadTV (you might remember the Little Joker character that went viral) and had comedy specials, but this guy has worked for years on the comedy show grind and was a solid L.A. based comic he guided me to the Comedy Store's open mic to get started. After showcasing 9 times, I finally became a club regular. Hilarious reminiscing in this episode and Johnny might just be the first guest to imitate me...

Ep 73 - Comedian Dwayne Perkins
I've run into comedian Dwayne Perkins a lot over the years. He's a really cool, laid back, funny guy who has worked his ass off in the comedy world for a long time. Dwayne has kept working consistently because he's funny and he's one of the few comics who just naturally work clean. He's also constantly writing and working on different projects balanced with life on the road.

Ep 72 - Film School 101
It's been said that we need more Latino representation behind the camera in Hollywood. Today we talk to 3 directors (Joey Medina, Tom Sanchez and Christian Sesma) who are self-made and still growing in their careers. They have worked their asses off to make films they are passionate about. And only one of them has actually been to film school. If you ever wanted to know the ins and outs of the independent film business - from a zombie/horror director to a foreign film director and a director who's leaning toward action-adventure - listen to these guys tell some stories of how it IS possible to achieve that dream.

Listen to her story of what it was like being thrown into a headliner's position when she didn't have enough material, rising to the occasion and learning along the way how rough this business can be. Fortunately, Anjelah is still selling out and growing her audience all over the place, just finished a new musical comedy tour with her character Bon Qui Qui and has her 3rd special, "Not Fancy", coming out on Netflix today (Oct 2, 2015).

Ep 69 - Comedian Felicia Michaels
Felicia Michaels is a pioneer in comedy. People like Amy Shumer and Sarah Silverman have her to thank for pushing the envelope when she was starting in comedy. Yes, she was not the first, but in mainstream comedy in the 80s it was very rare - a female comic who talked about the same things men were talking about. So it's appropriate that she's our 69th episode! Felicia started out as a stripper and then got into the comedy world, got married and adopted a couple kids and took a long break from comedy until her divorce. Now she's back in comedy again and is hitting the stage hard. Go check her out at a show near you and check out her new podcast "The Milf Code".

*Forgive Jamie's microphone. He was talking with lots of acting out so he moves it a lot. Also, after 36 years in Los Angeles, he still has a thick Iranian accent.* I've known Jamie Masada, the owner of the Laugh Factory for about 17 years. This is the man who told me that he didn't see me making it for another 6 years and crushed my dreams early in my stand-up career. He's done it to a lot of people. But he's usually right. He knows what's funny. Hear the story of a teenage immigrant from Iran who has risen from nothing to a major player in the Hollywood community.

Ep 60 - Comedian Brian Babylon
Comedian Brian Babylon joins us today. This fool just got to L.A. about a month ago from Chicago and started hustling the minute he stepped off the plane. He already has a regular n ight at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood and a job producing and doing media for Hannibal Buress' new Comedy Central show "Why?". Hear what it's like for a new comic to start all over again but on another level in a strange land called Hollywood. *BTW Rodrigo didn't know there was a show today, so he's not here.

Ep 59 - Comedian Owen Smith
You might have seen Owen Smith in one of many commercials, TV shows or movies, or you might have seen him on stage doing stand up. He's always been a funny, down to earth guy who rubs elbows with lots of people in the business who know how to get things done. That's what inspired him to do his own 1 hour special, "Good Luck Everybody", all on his own - shot on a few iPhones. No one has done this before. It's risky, it's disruptive to the people who do specials for a living, and it's brilliant. I can't wait to see it. Just another inspiring story of doing it on your own and not waiting for someone else to hand it to you. Please take 5 seconds to rate or review the podcast on itunes and if you like it subscribe!

Ep 58 - Comedian Lahna Turner
I've known comedian Lahna Turner for a long time. Long before her husband became famous. But enough about him. Today it's all about Lahna. She's funny, sometimes she picks up a guitar and sings funny songs, she's worked the hardest, cholo-infested rooms in the middle of nowhere, she's worked on stage in the nude, she's a mother, she has a podcast and she has a new one-hour special out on Hulu. It also might be the most mention of penises we've ever had. Check her out. Truly one of the most caring friends I've known in Hollywood.

Ep 56 - Comedian Fortune Feimster - Pride Month
On this historic day when the SCOTUS ruled that same sex marriage is now legal across the U.S., we close out our Gay Pride Month series with the hilarious comedian Fortune Feimster. She's just an awesome person. Grew up in a very conservative town in the south, came to L.A., worked in improv groups and then stand-up, then became a writer and sometimes actor on Chelsea Lately which took her to new heights in her career and started opening lots of doors. She deserves it all. She's super nice and funny and just an all around good person. **She had to leave after an hour but Rodrigo and I kept going so sit back and listen to it all.

Ep 54 - Rapper Deadlee - Pride Month
We're continuing our Pride Month series where we'll be having LGBT guests on every Friday in June. Today we have an old friend of mine from the Myspace days - rapper Deadlee (aka Joseph LeMar). He's gay and proud and you probably wouldn't be able to tell that he's gay unless he told you. He has pushed the boundaries, not just outside the gay community, but within the gay community as well - trying to prove that there are lots of different types of gay people and not just the ones the community chooses to represent itself. Listen as he tells about being a rapper who was seen as too hardcore, being in a homosexual abusive relationship, getting into acting and eventually going behind the scenes as a producer and manager of straight hip hop acts.

Ep 53 - Comedian Thai Rivera - Pride Month
The whole month of June, we're celebrating Pride Month and having LGBT guests on every Friday. We decided to kick it off with "America's Favorite Fag" (his words, not mine), comedian Thai Rivera. He may not be politically correct, but he's honest, he's funny and he's a comedy soldier who has worked some of the toughest rooms in the country. With only 12 years in the comedy game so far, he's already made a name for himself by being funny and telling it like it is.

He's just a genuine person, a guy who lays it all out, no mystery, no fake attitude, just a lot of life experience, an honest, funny way of looking at life and a laugh that rivals Rodrigo's… And did you know his life was the inspiration for the movie Van Wilder? He's also got popular shows on the Travel Channel. In fact, his show Trip Flip premieres on June 2 on Travel Channel. Go show him some love. *P.S.

Man, I guarantee you've seen - or heard - this guy in a bunch of tv shows, commercials, everything. He's also a hilarious stand-up comedian. I've known Brian Scolaro for over 10 years. He always kills on stage and he is probably the guy who's getting those acting roles I never get booked for. He's also got a podcast on the All Things Comedy network - called "This Is My Podcast" and it's more of a show (sketches, bits, discussion) than a traditional podcast.

Ep 47 - My Big Fat Vegan Podcast
Okay, okay, so I'm vegan… Some of you guys know that and the rest of you think I'm punking you, but it's true. Been vegan for over 4 years now because of some health issues and since then my health has improved, I lost some weight (at first, 30 pounds, put about 10 back on since then) and got a lot of hate from fans. People said I was a sell out, whitewashed, and that there's no such thing as a vegan Mexican. Well there is, and all over the country when I'm on the road I've met a lot of other Latino vegans. In this episode I sat down with a bunch of them at Organix Market and Deli (vegan deli!) in Eagle Rock and talked to a lot of the ones in the L.A. area, some of the bigger names in the vegan social media community - most of them are Latino, there's a Filipino in there and an Afghani and a Kiwi too. Organix is a Latino owned and operated business, too, so go support and give it a try - have one barbacoa or "fish" taco there and if you say you don't like it, you're lying!!

Jay London is challenging to figure out… never quite sure if he is serious or joking. Strange appearance, quiet, soft-spoken, mild mannered, self-deprecating but very quick-witted. Super nice and loving man who's seen a lot of life on this earth. Listen as he breaks down his act, his experience in show business and how performers need regular ego "feedings" along the way. He also goes into detail about the old business he tried years ago in NY and explains shylocks and the numbers game in a way I can understand.

He's a young guy from East L.A. now fighting with Golden Boy Promotions who's undefeated. He's got a pretty cool story and he breaks down his training regimen and the discipline it takes to climb to the top . He's also a young father and brought his daughter along for the show so you might hear her in the background. We also had a call-in from UFC fighter Sean Loeffler who wanted to promote his fight on Mar 21 and he breaks down some of the bullshit he's had to deal with lately in getting back into the UFC after a frustrating struggle and misunderstanding.

Ep 37 - Tiffany Haddish
Tiffany Haddish and I go back a long way. She and I hit up almost every late show at the Hollywood Laugh Factory and Long Beach Laugh Factory every single week between 2006 and 2010. She's hilarious - just a naturally funny person. She's also been through some serious shit in her life - from poverty to foster care to becoming a comedian (and back to poverty again sometimes) and landing a few TV shows and movies along the way. Trust me when I tell you she will blow up very soon. Sit back and enjoy. Please rate or review the podcast and if you like it subscribe! Thanks for listening!

*Originally recorded January 25, 2015 at the Ontario Improv in Ontario California (in the green room)* We're in the green room of the Ontario Improv in California right after a weekend of 8 sold out shows.

Mostly this show is just us kicking back after a long weekend of work.

Ep 33 - One Night in Tampa w Russell, Dom and Adam
This is two episodes in one… recorded in Tampa Florida when my friend, comedian Russell Peters invited me to fly with him and Dom Irrera on Russell's private plane. I skipped my commercial flight and took my podcast equipment with me. The interview starts off with us waiting at the private airport with a new comedian with 5 years in the game - Adam Murray from Orlando Florida. He tells us about his years doing open mics and driving a taxi cab. I stepped away for a few minutes to go to the bathroom and Rodrigo takes over. The second part of the interview is me on the plane with Russell Peters (the world's most famous comedian that not many people in the U.S. know) and Dom Irrera (hilarious comedian who's been in the game for 30+ years). Kind of all over the place but a bunch of true comedy road life stories. Hope you like it. Please rate or review the podcast and if you like it subscribe! Thanks for listening!

Ep 32 - Chuck Bartell and the Comedy Witness Protection Program
Chuck Bartell. Some call him odd, some call him creepy, irreverant, I just call him George Washington. You might have seen this guy open for me a few times in L.A., Arizona, maybe Chicago and he always surprises my audiences by how funny his act is. He's one of my favorites and has some of the best one liners out there today. I miss the one-liner comics. He's bringing that back. Chuck came on the show to talk about his comedy CD - "Der Humor" - a collection of 150 very short jokes and you may be surprised to know they are organized alphabetically for your convenience. He's also doing a live show in January in Chicago and hoping for a strong turnout so if you're in the area and want to see some weird, funny comedy, go see his show. But don't look for him on social media because he won't be there. Please rate or review the podcast and if you like it subscribe! Thanks for listening!

Ep 30 - Metal + Mariachi = Metalachi
After a couple months of trying to match up schedules, we finally got Metalachi in the studio. The ONLY heavy metal mariachi band out there. Ignore any imitators - these guys are the real deal. Strange characters for sure with questionable pasts and I'm still not sure we got a straight answer about anything but we had a lot of fun. These guys bring the Mexican culture of mariachi to the fun of the old hair bands of the 80s. Listen and try to keep up.

Ep 29 - LA Artistas - Rafa, Ernesto and Juan
3 Chicano artists walk into a bar… I don't have a punchline for that one… But I have run across these 3 L.A. artists a few times over the years and we finally sat down to talk to them all. Rafa Cardenas, East L.A. native, former member of the band Slowrider and now a photographer; Ernesto Yerena from El Centro California, Shepard Fairey protege and the artist who created our podcast logo (and poster) and Juan Luis Garcia, L.A. photographer for the Face Value project and a graphic designer. Hear them tell the stories behind how they got into art, why they pursued it despite many Latino/immigrant families not understanding art as a career, and how they're keeping part of the L.A. art scene "real" in the face of the L.A. hipster takeover.

Ep 27 - Emilio Rivera
This guy was the original inspiration for our Cholos: Where Are They Now? series we did a while back but he was always so busy working… Finally, this week we got to talk to actor (and comedian) Emilio Rivera. The realest guy you'll ever meet. He may play unflinching, menacing characters on TV shows and in movies but, yes, Emilio started as a stand-up comedian. I met him when I was starting out in comedy 17 years ago. We lived on the same block. I stayed in comedy and he went on to become a highly sought out character actor. He's currently portraying Marcus Alvarez in Sons of Anarchy and talks about what it's like to go from being a regular guy from the hood to portraying one on the big screen.

Last week when we had Flaco as a guest with Gracie, we felt like we didn't get enough Flaco so we had him on by himself this week. Because we find Flaco interesting.

It's not a character - it's who he is even when he's playing Madden at my house.

Ep 24 - Gracie Armijo and Isaac Flaco Martinez
Gracie has been in comedy for a long time… but she's been doing the open mic rooms that whole time. She's kept her day job the whole time. She's a mom. She's 58. She's also one of the few women in comedy who will put up with all the nonsense from the male comics. Most female comics don't like to hang out with a bunch of dudes bagging on each other and dishing it out. Nothing we say to her affects her - or at least she doesn't show it. She's a true soldier. Listen as she breaks down her history of "trying" to get into show biz, and listen as 4 Mexican-Americans try to remember what M.E.C.H.A. stands for. Flaco also makes a return appearance to cheerlead on the side. We meant to have him on more during this episode but we got sidetracked. We'll have Flaco on again for his own episode. At the end of the episode, listen to the premiere of the new "Taco Tuesday" parody of Drake's "Tuesday" with I Love Makonnen. Video will be coming soon!

Ep 21 - 8 Million Ways to Say Josh Nasar
I met comedian Josh Nasar about 7 years ago at the Hollywood Laugh Factory. He was "douchebagged" out, Ed Hardy, Von Dutch, all that stuff… but I remembered him. He made an impression on me as someone who went after what he wanted and who worked hard and just was an all-around nice guy. Over the years, he lost that douchebag image and came into his own as a comedian. He also got further into acting and just got a role on this final season of Sons of Anarchy. Seems like things are looking up for old Joshy…Listen as he describes his upbringing in sales, his experience as a door-to-door salesman, comedian and actor and listen as we discuss for the first time EVER - the origin of the phrase "What's Up Fool?"

Ep 20 - Mariano "Big Dawg" Mendoza
I met Mariano this year while we were working on a commercial together. He's got quite a story… taken from his abusive home as a young child, Mariano then bounced around in and out of a series of foster homes and schools, never finding any real roots. Throughout this time, however, he was forging a strength of his own and found his calling in the military and eventually professional fighting. Eventually, Mariano began acting in movies and TV and is headed for a new challenge in life. Listen as Mariano breaks down professional (and unlicensed) fighting, "juicing" (not your fruits & veggies) and being a tough guy in Hollywood.

Ep 19 - La Cucaracha Pest Control - Mando, Rodrigo & Pops
I've known these guys for a long ass time… I met Mando (Armando Cosio Sr.) when he was an exterminator at the projects where I lived in Boyle Heights. I found out he did comedy on the side. We became friends. He now owns his own exterminating business (La Cucaracha Pest Control) in Los Angeles and still does comedy on the side. He's funny! He and I used to tour with Gabriel Iglesias (Fluffy) for a while too. He has his son "Pops" (Armando Cosio Jr.) working for him in the office and eventually hired my friend Rodrigo Torres to work for him as an exterminator while Rodrigo is touring with me on the side AND going to law school. They have a long history with me, a lot of stories and a lot of jokes. We'll probably have Mando back again soon since we have so much history together, but sit back and listen to this first one.

Ep 18 - Sin Quirin - Guitarist From Ministry
I met Sin Quirin a couple years ago at one of my comedy shows in L.A. He turned out to be cool - a real rock and roll guy. This interview is raw and unfiltered and just exactly the way he is. Had a lot of fun talking about the hood, growing up Latino in an all white neighborhood, loving hard rock and punk and being Latino inside that whole world. And with so many things in common, I still can't figure out how we didn't run into each other in the East L.A. area back in the day… Don't let it fool you that he has never smoked or had a drink in his life - this guy has a vice!

Ep 17 - Desiree Devine (retired) BBW Porn Star
I met Desiree about 8 years ago when she started coming to my comedy shows. Found out she was a BBW porn star. She moved away for a while so I didn't learn much more about her after that. Luckily we stayed in touch and when I stopped by Vegas to do a show, I asked her if she would sit down with us and talk about her experience in porn and life in general. Listen as this bright, level-headed creator of BBW Con breaks down the porn industry, Japanese men, and all the fetish categories you can think of.

Ep 16 - Flashback to Kidnap - Keith Manning tells his side of the Houston story
I've known and worked with comedian Keith Manning for about 10 years. He opens for me in a lot of different cities on the road. I like working with him because he's laid back and cool and easy to get along with. From the deep south, Savannah Georgia, he talks about growing up in the south, idolizing Blood In, Blood Out, black fraternities in college, and how he's never met a black person who went to school with the help of the United Negro College Fund… He also talks about his side of the crazy Houston story that my friend Theo told on our 3rd episode of the Kidnapped series. If you haven't heard that one yet, go listen to it first. Thanks to everyone who is listening to our podcast. We love doing it.

Ep 15 - Cholos Where Are They Now - Franky Carrillo
The final episode in our "Cholos: Where Are They Now?" series brings us to this guy, Franky Carrillo, who I met while walking down the street. He told me he liked my comedy and that he had watched me on Last Comic Standing… while he was in prison - wrongfully. At age 17, mistakenly identified as a murderer, railroaded into life in prison and then 20 years later, Franky was released with the help of the Innocence Project. An unbelievable story of hope and perserverance in the face of an impossible situation and a young man who finally found his voice and remains positive to this day. By the way, Rodrigo was missing from this episode because he lost his phone and we couldn't get in touch with him. Go follow him on his social networks anyway. Shoutout to my friend Juan Romero who let us do this recording at his coffee shop in Boyle Heights - Primera Taza Coffee House. Go visit them and get a chocomil.

Ep 12 - Cholos Where Are They Now? - Heaven Juan Carlos Munoz
This episode kicks off our "Cholos - Where Are They Now?" series. A few episodes that will explore what happens to some of those guys you thought were a lost cause when they were younger; the fools that were drunks, drug addicts, thugs, delinquents… not all of them end up dead or in prison. Some of them become artists. I'm living proof that you can always come back from even the darkest times in life if you have something in life that you're passionate about. So is my friend, artist, Juan Carlos Munoz Hernandez (aka "Heaven"). I've known him since 2nd grade and we grew up following the same bad path in life. Eventually, after years of tagging all over L.A., he turned things around and ended up getting through a rigorous process to become an assistant to sculptor Robert Graham. Today, he still runs the gallery and creates his own sculptures and paintings and continues to do commissioned murals and other work. We had another visitor during the episode - writer Rodrigo Rivera D'Ebre, who is filming his directorial debut documentary on dark progressivism - a film that focuses on many different artists, including Heaven (Juan Carlos).

Ep 11 - Baby Bash - Kid Frost - Chicano Rap Old School and New School
What a great day this was… My friend Baby Bash (rapper, "Suga Suga", "Cyclone") invited me to the set of his video shoot for his new single, "Certified Freak" and I decided it would be good to do a podcast with him. Little did I know that his friend Kid Frost (rapper, "La Raza", "No Sunshine") was on set hanging out and bringing the crew BBQ from the restaurant he owns in Los Angeles, Little Max's BBQ (http://www.yelp.com/biz/a-taste-of-the-county-fair-lil-maxs-bbq-los-angeles).

Ep 10 - Hollywood Dreamers - Fred Stoller - That Guy Who's Been in Everything
A few months ago, I heard that Fred Stoller was looking to return to stand up after a long break of acting and writing in Hollywood. He's been in a ton of TV shows and movies and I didn't think he would want to open for me but it turned out he did. He was so funny and nice and had so many great stories of his experiences during the stand-up comedy boom of the 80s and being in so many shows and movies that I knew I had to get him on the podcast. Listen as Fred breaks down "comedy bringer shows", how Hollywood treats you if you're not the star, why you should never pay for acting classes and retells some stories from his book "Maybe We'll Have You Back". As Fred says, "life is so much better when there's no hope" #NoChiclets #NoRockettes Fred Stoller WEBSITE: www.fredstoller.net TWITTER: @Fred_Stoller INSTAGRAM: @FredStoller BUY FRED'S BOOK: http://www.amazon.com/Maybe-Well-Have-You-Back/dp/1620877066 WATCH FRED'S MOVIE (FRED & VINNIE) ON NETFLIX.

Ep 8 - Hollywood Dreamers – Dani Luv: Starchild, Not in Kansas Anymore
I found this guy Dani Luv interesting. He's Starchild in a Kiss tribute band (Kiss My Ass), he's in a Spanish rock duo (Matador) and hails from a little town in Kansas that you'd never know had any Latinos in it. Oh yeah, he's Latino, too. This is the 2nd episode in our series on <strong>"Hollywood Dreamers"</strong>… What makes a normal person drop everything and move to California to take their chances at fame and (maybe) fortune? What if they don't make it big? Why do they still stay? What does "making it" mean to them? What makes them get back up every time the industry knocks them down? We hear Dani's story of Kiss, Garden City, the Latin music scene and even his stint in the "back office" of the porn industry.
