This week our guest is Shannon Norman. Shannon is a a comedian and tv personality who is a member of the "race to the coffin" comedy tour. That tour was put together by him and a few other guys in town who all have edgier and less-than-healthy persona's on stage at least, if not also in real-life. Shannon has become one of the few tried and true comedians to come out of the Pittsburgh scene, and numbers among those who don't just call Pittsburgh home, but live here still. Shannon sits down to talk comedy, ventriloquists, bunking with furries on the road, and more

Jesse Landis-Eigsti (of Jesse LE, as he is sometimes known) is a musician, composer, comedian and improviser based here in Pittsburgh. 

Jesse writes and performs amazingly funny and musically intruiging songs, that are simultaneously funny, witty, and catchy. He also is the acompanist for Arcade Comedy Theater's house musical improv team, and is a member of the questing party on Knights of the Arcade, where he plays the bard... bardly (with a magical floating keyboard that follows him everywhere). 

Jesse sits down to talk about that, writing a mini-opera about the Mario Brothers, and a whole lot more!
