256 My Case Against Hollywood
<p><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:georgia, palatino;">Hollywood is a diseased monster, offering fame and fortune at the expense of values, love and family.  It’s a sociopathic organism that promotes pedophilla grooming in childrens movies like “Show Dogs.” </span></p> <p><span style="font-size:10pt;font-family:georgia, palatino;">Great quote by my friend and fellow comedian Josh Wolf. I mention my trip to the Libertarian Convention with Ron Paul and why family is important.  Trans kids, Tommy Robinson and everything is Trump’s fault.  Al Gore’s ” An Inconvenient Truth” is actually a comedy.</span></p>

They Don’t Get The Joke
<p>On this episode of “why didn’t they laugh” I try to wrap my head around all the people who no longer seem to understand jokes.

159 “The Old Hitler Push-back”
<p>This week I dive into the steps it took for me to go on a rant about on stage about how Hitler was a misunderstood guy who took a rag tag bunch of misfits out of the gutter a lot like the mighty ducks. It’s a long ep but I had to discuss recent realizitions I’ve had on twitter from arguing with people on twitter about JK Rowlings and Sharia law (which have a lot in common).

158 Great Expectations (frame shifting in Philly)
<p>In this ep I show how a frame shift can make something very simple or very crazy funny. Watch how a subtle giggle can make benign small talk funny. I also discuss progressivism as a religious entity as well as a frame shift on the John Lennon song “imagine.” Watch how people react to the bigotry of low expectations that normal white guys like me can’t play classical piano.

An American in Canada (featuring Dr Jordan Peterson)
<p>My weekend at yuk yuk’s in Vancouver was amazing. Great crowds but definitely a major culture shift. I chatted with my opener Ross Dauk was talented, fun, and outspoken about Canadian socialism. The conversation weaved in and out of free speech so much and I realized how many people don’t know some of the issues facing it, especially in Canada, so I supplemented the conversation with clips of Dr Jordan Peterson who has become one of my heroes. People always ask me why I’m so against “PC” culture. It’s because it’s obvious it is the way people are trying to break a population. I just reread 1984. It can be applied to fascism or socialism. Neither side is “right.” But the markers are obvious.

He has an unbelievably interesting and shocking take on our motivations for war in the middle east and it will open your eyes to what could actually be happening.

<p>This episode is all about health and wellness. I met Kevin almost 7 years ago when he worked at Crunch gym in Hollywood. Long story short, I lost 70 lbs working with him and he transformed the way I see life. He now has his own gym “Heart and Hustle” with his business partner Greg in west hollywood, and trains the biggest stars and most elite athletes in the world. Seacrest mentioned his gym during this year’s Oscar commentary to point out how great their client Brie Larson looked after working with them. His insight into what motivates humans transcends social boundaries in the same way that comedy, music, and food can. </p> <p>Email me whydidnttheylaugh@gmail.com</p> <p>Email kevinjtraining@gmail.com to find out more about his gym or just to get advice.

#73: Called To Healing (My Mom’s Book)
<p>My mom’s grandmother was a midwife with 6 sisters. My mom came from an abusive family in an abusive time in an abusive world. She willed herself into being kind, thoughtful and connected to a greater meaning than the chaos that surrounded her. She wrote a book back in the early 90’s called “Called to Healing.” A few classes used the book as a textbook but it never got the commercial acclaim that many books with similar information published decades after have gotten. My mom’s happiness probably lies in her intrinsic goals rather than her extrinsic needs of fame and money. So I guess that’s when her oversized son can step in and read parts of her book to thousands of people that listen to his podcast.</p> <p>Weeks away from having my first child I feel called to reconnect to my own parents and their journeys. It was so enjoyable to reread her book and think about it. I once was the 9 year old who felt almost responsible for my mom’s sadness b [...]</p>

#59: It Takes A Child To Raise A Village
<p>I recorded this after not sleeping for two days so it’s either gonna be awesome or insane. I’m solo on this one which means there are some extreme tangents explored. A physicist I talked to recently explained to me the gluons who’s’ function is to bind and connect subatomic particles actually has the majority of the mass of the atom? I may be getting that wrong but the concept has stuck with me. We are more what connects us to each other than we are ourselves. I get into a surprisingly personal amount of detail how I think Amy and I went from being unstable and sometimes hostile with each other to partners. I’m too tired to sensor myself so I hope you relate to my gluons.

#58: Of Course with Kirk Fox
<p>Long time friend and rhetorical master Kirk Fox joins me. I met Kirk going to the Aspen comedy festival in 2006 right after he quit professional tennis to be a comedian. He won new faces that year and if there was another aspen this year he’d probably win “known faces.” He’s on a new CBS show playing a cop but I’m pretty sure he’s just being a cop. After they wrap the season he will for sure follow up on some more leads and solve the cases these “writers” keep claiming they made up. This episode will confuse you, teach you, make you laugh, and possibly angry at times. Did Kirk really save that guy from an elevator of Japanese people? Did he really hammer those .22 caliber bullets on the train track into his knee? In the end? Kirk is a lot like gold or the criteria the Academy Award judges follow. It’s whatever you feel like it is. check out his twitter @kirkfox it’s ridiculously funny check out my documentary 60minutes7day [...]</p>

#48: Hugo Boss was a Nazi with Adam Ray
<p>Long time friend and host of ABOUT LAST NIGHT podcast, Adam joins me to talk history, hecklers, his new role in Ghostbusters, and he’s shocked to learn Hugo Boss was a Nazi. He claims he will no longer wear the cologne but I don’t believe him. He’s a great guy and this was one of my favorite interviews I’ve done thus far. I read emails from listeners who try to explain to me what diamonds are all about and my opinion shifts slightly. Catilyn Jenner is the new Nickelback and Donald Trump is the joker from batman.

#45: Ninja Pirate
<p>Final stretch of my tour and happy to be coming home. I review the incredible book “Why Nations Fail” and give you some solid points they make so you don’t have to read the whole book if you don’t want to. I break format a little and don’t go over live jokes because frankly random venue midweek shows can get so weird I can’t accurately determine why jokes are working or not. So instead I read you guys a story from my childhood that involves a little kid with a dream, some bad luck, and a mom with a big decision. It’s kind of like my Marvel origin story. Except I didn’t turn into a super hero. Listen and enjoy. email me at whydidnttheylaughpodcast@gmail.com to tell me about your origin stories rate, comment, and spread this podcast because that’s how we grow draftkings.com promo code LAUGH for free entry into this week’s contest. </p>
